80+ Thanksgiving Recipes

I have been hosting Thanksgiving since 2009 and in those nearly seven years of hosting, I’ve amassed quite the collection of Thanksgiving recipes.

Ironically, there have only been two years where I have cooked the turkey which kind of makes me laugh. When you hear Thanksgiving, you typically think of a turkey and I’m rarely responsible for the main dish. Instead I typically get to create a palate pleasing variety of appetizers, side dishes and desserts.

I can almost share 100 recipes with you. That’s insane!

(And definitely my goal for next year.)

So if you are hosting this year or you have been tasked with a recipe to bring, scroll down and see what fancies you.

Let’s start off with my first recipe round up of Thanksgiving Recipes compiled in 2013.


And then last year I went through my entire recipe index and managed to give you over 75+ Thanksgiving Recipes.

And finally, we have the recipes I’ve shared with you since last year:

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Almonds
Rosemary Roasted Nuts

Slow Cooker Wassail

Side Dishes:
Stuffing in a Bundt Pan
Mashed Potatoes for a Crowd
Poached Pear Salad
Italian Green Beans
Parmesan Sage Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Brown Sugar and Thyme Roasted Carrots
Parmesan Parsley Roasted Potatoes

Lighter Jewish Apple Bundt Cake
Apple Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Salted Caramel Drizzle
Apple Cranberry Crumble
Slab Apple Pie

If you have never hosted Thanksgiving before and are looking for some tips, read about the time where I hosted 20+ people in my 1200 square foot apartment.

To me, Thanksgiving is about being with family and giving thanks for what we have. But from a realistic hosting standpoint, it’s also all about planning, preparation and organization. Don’t let that become the main focus though.

If its your first Thanksgiving – you can do this!

And if you’re panicking and need to talk to someone who has been through this before, I’m here.
