How to Make Your Thanksgiving Dinner Go a Little Coastal

There is something so comforting and wonderful about our Thanksgiving tradition. Without a doubt, your Turkey Day Menu is one of those traditions. From green bean casserole to pumpkin pie, everyone has their favorite dish. However, it doesn’t hurt to try something new every once in a while. If you are planning to have a coastal Thanksgiving, then why not add a little Ocean Isle Beach flavor to your dinner menu? Get a plateful of mouth-watering local Thanksgiving Dinner favorites. Ask anyone from eastern North Carolina, and you will get a short list of Thanksgiving must-haves: Fried Turkey, Collard Greens, and Oyster Dressing.

Ocean Isle Beach Flavor is The Best Way to Keep Their Plates Full 

There are so many options when it come to your Thanksgiving meal while in Ocean Isle Beach. If you have decided to forego spending the day in the kitchen, then consider Thanksgiving Dinner at The View at Brick Landing. This is a full course dinner, served in style, with slow-roasted turkey and all the trimmings. At $29.99 per adult, it may be the perfect solution for a couple, or a small family who doesn't want the fuss of making a large meal or having tons of leftovers. Reservations are required, so book ahead.

Have you been longing to try the crispy goodness of a southern fried turkey, but don't want to purchase a deep fryer. Then you can let Bojangles do the work for you. Customers rave over the pre-cooked bird, and highly recommend it. There is a Bojangles conveniently located in Shallotte, just a short 14 minute drive from Ocean Isle Beach. The Causeway Gourmet is also offering help with your Thanksgiving meal. They have a variety of options, and they deliver. Be sure to ask about their collard greens!! 

Speaking of collard greens, if you are looking to trying your hand at cooking your own collards, then head over to Holden Brothers Farm. They have an excellent selection of locally grown produce, and a great variety of other North Carolina sourced products. Be sure ask if they have any local pork products to season your collards. You will be happy you stopped by! Spending your vacation dollars at locally owned businesses makes a huge difference to the local economy, and it is greatly appreciated!!

3 Reasons Why You Should Make Oyster Dressing

1.  You will be adding coastal class to your traditional meal. Oysters are a luxury to many people, but in eastern NC, they are part of many fall & winter meals. 

2.  You get to buy a locally sourced seafood. Head over to one of the local fish markets, and ask for their local salty oysters. You can buy them pre-shucked, and ready for your recipe! Be sure to keep a lookout for a "Got To Be NC" cornbread mix, available at most grocery stores...and probably Holden Brothers Farm.

3. You get to try something NEW!! Adding something new and different to your family tradition is always fun!
