Thanksgiving is next week! 🍁 Have you thought about what you want to prepare for your Thanksgiving Dinner?? If not, I have some suggestions for you. These are the Top 9 Thanksgiving dishes of all time! 🥧
In no particular order:
Mac and Cheese
This baked mac and cheese is a real crowd-pleaser, ultra-creamy, and topped with crispy panko and herbs. Good homemade baked mac and cheese begins with al dente noodles and a rich sauce made from butter, flour, milk, and loads of shredded cheese. The noodles are tossed with cheesy sauce, transferred to a baking dish, topped with crispy breadcrumbs, and then baked until bubbling and golden.
Sweet Potato Casserole
We LOVE a sweet potato casserole — but sweet potato casseroles with marshmallows on top can be super controversial. Some people (🙋) hate the candy-like element they add to the Thanksgiving spread. This casserole is for everyone in that camp. In place of the fluffy addition is a buttery pecan topping that’s still sweet (thanks to the brown sugar), but not enough to make it taste like a straight-up dessert.
If you prefer your classic casserole without any of the fluff, read on for our top tips on making this Thanksgiving side the star of your celebration.
Holiday Roasted Vegetables
Amidst all of the Thanksgiving casseroles, we usually end up craving some simple, no-fuss roasted vegetables. And this colorful medley is definitely worthy of a spot on your Thanksgiving plate. The dried cranberries and balsamic vinegar add some sweetness and tartness while the pecans add an extra crunch. We use Brussels sprouts and carrots, but feel free to add extra vegetables or swap in some of your favorites.
Dry-Brined Turkey With Tangy Honey Glaze
This foolproof Thanksgiving turkey recipe produces a holiday centerpiece that is excellent in every way other whole turkeys often fall short: It’s full of flavor and juicy as heck, thanks to an easy dry brine. And cooking the turkey on a rimmed baking sheet, not in a deep roasting pan, is great for all-over browning—just be extra careful as you remove it from the oven so that the drippings don’t slosh over the sides.
Green Bean Casserole
No holiday is complete without deviled eggs, so here is our recipe to bring to the table. If you are not hosting Thanksgiving this year, bring a dish of these and your host will be mighty grateful.
Cinnamon Apple Cranberry Sauce
A simple, cinnamon and apple cranberry sauce is easy with only six ingredients.
Savory Corn Pudding
This old-school favorite makes one of our favorite vegetables into a creamy casserole that everyone will enjoy. Chopped onion and fresh thyme are welcome additions to this classic holiday side dish.
