Looking For Thanksgiving Dinner Recipes? Try The White House Menu

Thinking of what to serve for Thanksgiving dinner can be easy if you go for the traditional recipes. But where is the fun in that?

So if you're out of ideas, then maybe you can feast your homes with what President Obama and his family will be having at the White House for their Thanksgiving dinner.

Executive chef Cris Comerford is cooking up his brine-soaked Thyme-roasted turkey and gravy recipe for the First Family and even the public gets to see how it will be prepared.

This will be served during the White House Thanksgiving celebration dinner, which has been happening since 2009.

Who's on the guest list?

Well, that's undisclosed to the press, but according to our sources, they will be "adult siblings and spouses and their children, friends from Chicago and Hawaii, and White House staff and their families."

So what will be the White House Thanksgiving dinner menu? As far as we know, it will be a variety of traditional turkey day dishes, with most ingredients for the recipe coming from Michelle Obama's Kitchen Garden.

There will also be honey baked ham and sidings such as cornbread stuffing, oyster stuffing, macaroni and cheese, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and dinner rolls.

And if you don't know it, President Obama loves pies, and that's why Executive Pastry Chef Bill Yosses will be baking up six pie recipes, particularly apple pie, cherry pie, White House huckleberry pie with blueberries, White House sweet potato pie, banana creme pie, and pumpkin pie.

For those who are interested, the White House kale salad recipe will be released to the public.
