It’s that time of year again. A time for your friends to get together and give thanks to one another, but also to compete on who makes the best Friendsgiving treat. Maybe your green bean casserole was a fan favorite last year and you don’t want to lose your top spot now? Maybe you only brought the wine and cider last time, and need to step it up this year? Well, whatever your position on the Friendsgiving totem pole, we’ve got you covered with our top recipe picks for this year’s gathering.
1. Stacked Potatoes
Why: Hit’em with a twist on the classic potatoes. Every Friendsgiving needs a potato dish, and it’s highly likely you’ll have friends bring some mashed potatoes or sweetened yams. But you’ll go above and beyond the standard tots by showcasing these beautiful and delicious treats.
Pro tip: The more garlic, the better.
2. Creamy Parmesan Baked Corn
Why: I had never thought of making a corn dish until experiencing this scrumptious treat at a friend’s dinner party a couple years ago. And now I’ve been making it for special occasions ever since. This creamy perfection is the ideal side for a Friendsgiving feast. Sorry, but it’s highly unlikely you’ll have any leftovers to take home.
Pro tip: Both (defrosted) frozen corn or corner from the husk work splendidly!
Why: An often forgotten but absolute necessity for any Thanksgiving feast is the gravy! If your grandma, mom, and aunts are still holding out on sharing their secret recipe, we’ve got you covered with a VERY simple one that will make your friends think you’ve had that sacred family recipe all along.
Pro tip: Substitute the water with low sodium chicken broth. Forget the optional turkey drippings and giblets.
4. Cinnamon Roasted Chickpeas
Why: Everyone needs a little snack before diving into the heavy hitters on a Friendsgiving. Give you your friends a sweet little something to munch on with these cinnamon roasted chickpeas. But beware! Although tiny, they are quite addictive!
Pro tip: The crispier, the better!
5. Corn Bread
Why: But really, the question is why not corn bread? Corn bread is always good and always a fan favorite at any potluck. Skip the fancy jalapeños and honey versions, and bring back the classic butter recipe to make your Friendsgiving feel like home.
Pro tip: Your friends will want more than this recipe above recommends. Just go ahead and double it to feed your people!

Please note, Selk'bag Kids models are intended for children ages 7 years and older.
A proper fit is essential to fully enjoying all the Selk'bag has to offer and for ensuring the safety of your child. A bag that is too large for your child can represent a tripping risk when your child attempts to walk in the bag.
Please note, that the sizing recommendations are meant for children of average weight as sizing is impacted by user weight. For example, a Selk'bag will fit a child of below average weight with a taller frame, similar to a child of average weight and a shorter frame. Likewise, a person of above average weight will require a bag meant for someone taller.
Minimum Height: 4'0" / 122 cm
Maximum Height: 4'6" / 137 cm
Kids Large: *
Minimum Height: 4'6" / 137 cm
Maximum Height: 4'11" / 150 cm
* Please note, Kids size Large is significantly less wide than the Adult size Small. An adult that measures between 4'6" and 4'11" should use the Adult Small over Kids Large.
A proper fit is essential to fully enjoying all the Selk'bag has to offer. Please note, that the sizing recommendations are meant for people of average weight and sizing is impacted by user weight. For example, a Selk'bag will fit a person of below average weight with a taller frame that exceeds the guidelines. Likewise, a person of above average weight will require a bag meant for someone taller.
In-between sizes? Please first consider the weight recommendations in the previous paragraph. Second, please understand that a looser fit is better for more comfortable sleeping, while a tighter fit is better for mobility - but may restrict sleeping comfort if booties are left on.
We always recommend to size up if you are not completely sure. It's better to have a little bit more room while using your Selk'bag!
Please mind that our Original 6G model due to highest loft of insulation (contains more padding insulation that Lite 6G) makes it more snug, so we recommend to size up if you are 1'' to 3'' below the in between size range (i.e if you are getting the Original 6G and you are 5'9'' we recommend getting an XL)
If you are between 5'5'' and 5'11'' this is your size. It can fit up to 6'1'' if you intend to use it without booties
Realtree models only
