Since the traditional Thanksgiving meal is usually reserved for immediate family, it doesn’t leave much room to celebrate with anybody outside of that circle. But luckily, “Friendsgiving” has become a holiday all on its own over the past couple of years. If you are unfamiliar with the term, it’s exactly as it sounds — a meal spent with good friends.

Friendsgiving is typically a much less formal version than the sit-down-around-the-turkey type spent with family, and it generally includes lots of tasty comfort foods and some good craft beer or wintery cocktails. Here are a few recipes to help you throw your own delicious Friendsgiving, or to take to a friend’s house to celebrate.

Mulled Wine

Warm, spiced, and full of comfort, mulled wine is the perfect way to welcome your guests in from the cold.

Bacon-Wrapped Potato Bites

Crunchy bacon combined with oven-baked rosemary potatoes … this is the dangerously addictive side dish you never knew you were missing out on.

Icebox Chai Pie

This recipe is a bit time-consuming and very hands-on, but it is absolutely worth every bit of effort. With butter, cinnamon, cream, and toasty hazelnuts and almonds, combined with the warmth of black chai spices, this pie is autumn dessert heaven. (Note that this recipe calls for at least two hours in the freezer.)
