Thanksgiving Dinner Recipes
Choosing the right recipes for your Thanksgiving dinner menu can be a daunting task. Have no fear; we’re here for you! These recipes are tried and true and have been loved by our Thanksgiving dinner guests for many years. Whether you are cooking the whole dinner on your own or contributing a few dishes there are lots of mouth-watering and simple recipes to choose from.
It’s safe to say your guests will arrive for Thanksgiving with hearty appetites. Having a few simple, savory appetizers on hand will allow you to put the finishing touches on dinner, while your guests get comfortable with each other. Savoring small bites of food will actually whet the appetite for the glorious feast that’s to come. Here are a few of our very favorites:
Serving a few light, fruity salads at Thanksgiving balances out the heavy, savory turkey and fixings. We love anything that adds beautiful color to the table. These crisp vegetables and fragrant fruits are the perfect addition to your holiday plate.
- Mandarin Spinach Salad with Candied Pecans
- Strawberry Pretzel Salad
- Creamy Green Pea Salad with Bacon
Thanksgiving Dinner Main Course
At last! The star of your Thanksgiving dinner, the turkey! No need to be intimidated by the idea of cooking a turkey (fun fact: it’s actually the easiest part of the whole meal!). Follow our recipe below for the most juicy, succulent turkey you’ve ever tasted. And what’s turkey without mashed potatoes and gravy? You’ll love these easy recipes as well.
Thanksgiving Cranberry Sauces
Cranberry sauce complements Thanksgiving turkey in a way even gravy can’t. The sweet and tangy cranberry is so vibrant and flavorful and pairs beautifully with a variety of different flavors. We especially love orange and raspberry. Try one of our favorite recipes and see for yourself!
Thanksgiving Side Dishes
From buttery golden rolls to savory sausage stuffing, these side dishes are as vital to your Thanksgiving menu as the bird itself. It’s the day to go carb crazy; enjoy every flavorful bite! And don’t forget the veggies! Vegetables at Thanksgiving are dressed up in their finest seasonings and taste delicious! Pick a couple and try for yourself.
- Roasted Parsnips and Carrots
- Green Bean Casserole with Bacon and Onion Straws
- Slow Cooker Creamed Corn
