Anyone else feel like Thanksgiving is like the Super Bowl of food? (Or is the Super Bowl the Super Bowl of food? Whatever.) Turkey! Green Bean Casserole! Mashed Potatoes! Cranberries! Pie! All happily together on a plate.
While the turkey is obviously the real MVP, personally, our favorites are all the other stars of the show. We love a good Thanksgiving salad, crunchy sweet potato casserole, and perfect buttery stuffing. Ugh, is it Thanksgiving yet???
Here are some of our favorite Thanksgiving recipes – from appetizer to dessert. Happy feasting!
Hands down, one of our absolute favorites. Fresh Brussels sprouts, crispy bacon, tangy dressing, and a generous sprinkle of Parm.
Roasted cauliflower, sweet potato, grains, lemon dressing. Hitting all the autumn high notes here.
Not only super tasty but also SUPER BEAUTIFUL. Love this one.
Super simple: just roasted sweet potatoes, wild rice, cashews, and an easy lemon dressing. YUM.
Can you really go wrong with oozy cheese on a puff pastry pillow?
The anything and everything snack that’ll keep the pre-dinner hangry-ness at bay.
Creamy mashed potatoes MADE IN THE INSTANT POT. This is not a drill.
Right up there with the turkey as far as Thanksgiving classics go. Even better: no canned green beans!
An obvious must on your Thanksgiving table.
Making all our Thanksgiving dreams come true. That crunchy brown sugar topping will give you life.
Can’t go wrong with a classic Thanksgiving stuffing (that’s NOT from a box).
Next-level turkey ready in less than 2 hours? Yes please.
A prime main dish for all your vegetarian (and let’s be honest – non-vegetarian) pals. Can’t go wrong with a good mac and cheese.
Another vegetarian winner. Saucy mushrooms, carrots, and peas topped with creamy mashed potatoes.
So retro and soooo amazing. Made super easy with YELLOW CAKE MIX. No jokes here.
Caramely apples tucked in by a brown sugar-y crust on both sides. Can you think of anything better?
Is it really Thanksgiving if there’s not pumpkin pie?
Fruit + cheese + pie? BRB. Diving in right now.
Post-Thanksgiving lunch plans, right here.
Obviously a proper response to too much Thanksgiving food is MORE THANKSGIVING FOOD.
Take all your veg-friendly leftovers, load them up in a bowl, devour.
Because we all need a good detox after all of the above. 👆🏼
Crisp, saucy lettuce wraps that are really just everything you need post-turkey dinner.
Happy early Thanksgiving to you and yours! Whether you’re traveling to see friends/family or staying close to home, we’re hoping this season is filled with lots of gratitude and love. ♡
