Turkey Sheet Pan Dinner is Grand Pabbie’s Solution for Smaller Feasts


My husband and I both have small families, so Thanksgiving turkey dinners result in a ridiculous amount of leftovers. Over the years, we’ve migrated away from tradition to avoid this glut, but this turkey sheet pan dinner is our new answer! It’s perfect for smaller gatherings AND for allergen-safe needs. 

Turkey Sheetpan Dinner Recipe - A Small Gathering Holiday Feast that's dairy-free and allergy-friendly

Turkey Sheet Pan Dinner is Grand Pabbie’s Solution for Smaller Feasts

This recipe is another creation from Dole’s healthy partnership with Disney’s Frozen 2 movie. It’s aptly named  the “Grand Pabbie Troll Turkey Dinner in a Pan” for its petite size and thoughtful ingredients to feed almost any dietary need.

You can serve this turkey sheet pan dinner at your own home, or pack it along for a “safe” dinner when heading to another holiday host. Just prep it on your jelly roll pan, and pop it in the oven when you arrive. (Cook it ahead if there wont’ be oven space!). Then you will have a whole feast untouched by potential allergen cross-contamination.

Garnish with Dairy-Free Gravy

The only thing missing from this turkey sheet pan dinner is the gravy shown in the picture. You won’t have much in the way of turkey pan drippings, but you can still make your own or purchase a dairy-free packet.

Great store-bought, dairy-free and gluten-free options include Simply Organic Turkey Gravy and Road’s End Golden Gravy. McCormick also has a ready-to-pour Turkey Gravy that’s made without dairy and gluten, but their gluten-free packets do contain milk.

If you’ll have time for more preparation, this creamy Mushroom Gravy Recipe is a tasty option.
