9 Favorite Thanksgiving Recipes

9 Favorite Thanksgiving RecipesThanksgiving is just a couple of weeks away now, and it’s time to start putting some serious thought into what recipes will earn a coveted spot on the table this year.  Here are some of my favorites!

1. Black Friday Turkey Sandwich Buns: Leftovers are one of the best parts of Thanksgiving, and the only thing better than leftover turkey is homemade sandwich rolls.

2. Garlic Mashed Potatoes: The Thanksgiving table just isn’t the same without some delicious mashed potatoes.  This version includes several cloves of fresh garlic!

3. Classic Green Bean Casserole: Green bean casserole might be my sister’s favorite dish of all time, so of course this classic recipe needs to be included on this year’s table.

4. Green Apple and Sausage Stuffing: This stuffing recipe comes from yours truly…and it’s quickly risen to one of my favorite stuffing recipes ever!

5. Salted Caramel Apple Pie: I think my family would revolt if an apple pie wasn’t on the menu for Thanksgiving.  I hope they like this salted caramel version!

6. Homemade Gravy (without meat drippings): Gravy is a staple on any Thanksgiving table, and this version can be made ahead since it doesn’t use meat drippings.  The secret flavor booster?  Onions!

7. Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Bourbon Cream Cheese Frosting: Normally I wait until after the meal to break into the bourbon.  Not this year!

8. Butternut Squash Salad: You can’t only eat turkey and dessert!  This salad helps make sure you start your meal on a healthy note.

9. Grandma’s Honey Potato Rolls: I love freshly baked bread, and the hint of honey in these potato rolls is a nice touch!

  1. Well thanks for making the meal planning easy. These are all so delicious and would be perfect turkey day sides and desserts. I’m thinking maybe I should do a mock thanksgiving now, just for that salted caramel pie. Thanks for including my cake too :)

  2. I absolutely love that you started with the left-overs, and totally agreed! Pinning to my Thanksgiving board.

  3. Looks good! I’ll take one of each, thanks. :-)
    I always remember waking up Thanksgiving morning to the smell of the turkey in the oven.
    Then it was over to the TV to watch the Macy’s Parade.
    I can almost smell the turkey now……… ;-)

    • I know! I was just telling my wife this morning that one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving Day is smelling the delicious food while watching the Macy’s Parade. I can’t wait!!

  4. Yum! Those rolls are totally calling my name. One of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving is eating buttered bread…I’m such a weirdo…haha. Thank you for including my salad. I haven’t made it yet this season and now I have a craving!

    • You aren’t weird at all for loving buttered bread (but then again, we did meet at King Arthur Flour…so maybe we’re both a bit crazy!). Thanks for posting that delicious salad!!

  5. Thanks so much for featuring my sandwich buns, David! And I’m loving all the other ideas in this roundup, too — I’m getting some good ideas. :-)

  6. Thanks for featuring my gravy!
