25+ Best Thanksgiving Recipes

I hope this round up of my blogger friends’ favorite Thanksgiving recipes will inspire you to tweak a family favorite or even test out a new recipe this year. From salads and sides to turkey recipes, desserts and even a cocktail, I’m certain you’ll find many recipes among these 25+ Best Thanksgiving Recipes that could don your holiday table!

We tend to stick to the same menu, but I do tweak the pies each year. Pumpkin is a given, but the other is baker’s choice. Granted, it’s usually a chocolate pie! What Thanksgiving recipe is a must on your holiday table?

  7. All these recipes looks just amazing! Joyeux Anniversaire Liz! I hope you had a wonderful day! Bless you, xoxo

  8. Can you believe that I haven’t even started to think about Thanksgiving yet? And to top it off I leave for Patagonia in a couple days and won’t be back until mid November. . .which means Thanksgiving may not be happening in my house this year. Regardless, this is a fantastic lineup. I’ve seen a couple of things that I have made and a few things I would like to made.

  9. Nobody is going to starve this Thanksgiving with treats like Pecan Truffles and Mini Pies luring this Ninja Baker to the kitchen! Great round-up Liz =)

  10. You are helping me with my favorite holiday… Thanksgiving!! Love the round up! 🙂

  11. This is such an awesome collection for Thanksgiving dinner! The holidays are my favorite! Everything looks amazing!

  12. We dont even really “celebrate” Thanksgiving here in the UK (I so wished we did! Its such a beautiful celebration so togetherness!)….but when I start to hear of American and Canadian bloggers talking about it, I know Christmas is on its way! We always have a little thanksgiving celebrating at home, even though its not traditionally celebrated in England and Im loving the look of that Green Bean Casserole to cook up as part of our meal! Delicious!

  13. Great line-up of recipes, love the idea of smoking a turkey.

  14. Such a beautiful tradition, Thanksgiving isnt something we do in Australia, but I really wish we did. Your round up of amazing eats has inspired me, sending out invitations now. I’ve got a beautiful new slow cooker that is perfect for the turkey. Yay! Im excited.

  15. What a lovely round-up. Some of these turkeys look incredible. It’s always been a dream of mine to experience at least one Thanksgiving in my lifetime. My sister who lives in LA loves Thanksgiving and this year she’s really excited to be celebrating the occasion in NY where she used to live xx

  16. Thanks! I needed this!

  17. I see new and different and tweaks on classics that I would love to try.

  18. Lizzy,
    Thanks for all the great recipes. I’m not a fan of turkey and my hubby loves it, so Thanksgiving is always a little difficult for me. I do like the desserts though…well, I always like desserts.
