11 Easy Recipes For Friendsgiving In Your College Dorm

Recipes that are quick/easy/cheap and probably won’t start a fire in your building.

1. Pan-Seared Turkey Cutlets

The communal oven isn’t the best place to leave a full turkey for 2-3 hours, plus it’s a LOT of work. Save the traditional process for when you don’t have papers to write and make these quick and super easy turkey cutlets instead!

2. No-Drippings Gravy

Most gravy requires the drippings from the turkey you just made, but if you followed the recipe above, you can still make gravy by using broth and soy sauce.

3. No Mixer Garlic Mashed Potatoes

No need to resort to the boxed stuff. Just buy a potato masher and you’re pretty much all set!
