Meghan Markle's Thanksgiving fit for a Duchess

Meghan's very own recipes for the perfect Thanksgiving meal

47w ago


Meghan Markle is the most recent addition to the British Royal Family, but she had become well accustomed to the finer things in life long before her and Harry tied the knot.

Alongside her successful acting career, the Duchess had a popular blog called The Tig. It was a predominantly lifestyle column from a typical American woman leading a less than typical American life. Really nice pieces about living in New York City, where to eat, where to shop, that sort of thing.

You can check out her archived pieces here.

She is also a self-confessed foodie and goes into great depth about her favourite restaurants and meals to eat and to prepare. There are plenty of great recipes, particularly if you are in to bold flavours and fresh ingredients.

As a lot of you will be contemplating this coming Thanksgiving and you can also find her idea of a perfect Thanksgiving meal for two here. As much as it's a beautiful big occasion, it doesn't have to be a complex faff in the kitchen and, with a prep time of 10 minutes and just half an hour to cook, this roasted chicken breast with mushroom and leak gravy can easily fit into your well deserved relaxation.

That said, if you are having a more chaotic, family affair, it could easily be upscaled to feed all your nearest and dearest.

She couples it with a fresh roasted acorn squash wedge salad to give it a really autumnal touch, using up the last of the season's greens.

As desert, Meghan has gone for almond butter bites, or truffles. These have the same consistency as any other truffle you've had, but are full of protein and can be a healthier alternative.

Of course, you could prepare them with chocolate ganache or serve them with a variety of dipping sauces, but if you're looking for a tasty, relatively guilt free treat that will keep so can be snacked on for days to come, look no further!

  • Ah, the Duchess of Sussex. I remember her well, from her stint as Holder of Briefcase 24 on "Deal or No Deal"

  • Please, is there no safe haven from this pretentious putz of a duchess?
