and vanilla bitters, our harvest-themed drinks

APPETIZERS

Marinated Feta with Seeded Crackers

 

Marinated Feta
with Seeded Crackers

If you double the amount of pie dough you make
(or purchase) for your holiday pies, you’ll have
plenty left over to prepare these easy seeded
crackers, which are the perfect accompaniment
to tangy cubes of feta.

Sweet Potato "Crostini" with Blue Cheese and Honey

Sweet Potato "Crostini" with
Blue Cheese and Honey

Baked sweet potato slices stand in for toasted
bread in this creative twist on crostini that makes a
knock-out pre-dinner nibble. One of our customers
suggests finishing them with a sprinkling of
Maldon sea salt for a subtle crunch.

TURKEY

Buttermilk-Brined Turkey

 

Buttermilk Brined Turkey

The secret to a moist, flavorful bird? Add
buttermilk to the brine. “This is definitely
going to be my go-to brining recipe from now
on,” says one reviewer, who tried our
longtime favorite for the first time last year.

Caramelized Onion Make-Ahead Gravy

Caramelized Onion
Make-Ahead Gravy

The cooks in our Test Kitchen got the
idea for this game-changing gravy from
legendary cookbook author and TV host
Ina Garten, who uses caramelized onions
for an extra depth of flavor.

TRADITIONAL SIDES

Traditional Cranberry Sauce >

Traditional Cranberry Sauce

We have dozens of recipes for cranberry
sauces, relishes and compotes, but our
customers keep coming back for this
traditional take. Easy to assemble, it has
only four ingredients, but you can add
other fruits or spices to make it your own.

Mashed Potatoes with Herb-Infused Cream and Chives

 

Mashed Potatoes with Herb-Infused
Cream and Chives

This decadent side dish is the family recipe of
one of our former Test Kitchen cooks—she
even called her mom to get the ratios just
right when writing it for us—and it has been
one of our most popular potato recipes ever since.

Rustic Stuffing with Leeks and Wild Mushrooms

Rustic Stuffing with Leeks
and Wild Mushrooms

For easy assembly on the big day, toast the
bread cubes and chop the mushrooms and
leeks a day in advance so everything is ready
to go. For a vegetarian version, simply replace
the chicken stock with veggie stock.

Bacon and Kale Stuffing

 

Bacon and Kale Stuffing

Turkey may be the star of the show, but
the stuffing is how we really know it’s
Thanksgiving. And, since bacon makes
everything better, we add a pound of it to
this hearty stuffing that’s likely to be the
first dish to disappear.

Everything Parker House Rolls

Everything Parker House Rolls

It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without these
beloved rolls, which were invented by a
baker at Boston’s Parker House hotel in the
19th century. Be sure to make more rolls
than you think you’ll need, because the
extras are perfect for making little turkey
sandwiches with leftovers.

Green Beans with Wild Mushrooms and Crispy Shallots

 

Green Beans with Wild Mushrooms
and Crispy Shallots

A fresher, more modern take on the traditional
green bean casserole, this side gets marks for
being “easy and flavorful” according to one
reviewer, who loves the combo of prosciutto
and a mix of wild mushrooms.

Thyme, Pecans and Parmesan

Move over, sickly sweet yams with

Hasselback sweet potatoes, which are
creamy on the inside and wonderfully
crisp on the edges.

Endive and Apple Salad with Candied Walnuts

 

Endive and Apple Salad
with Candied Walnuts

Candied walnuts and rich blue cheese
temper the bitterness of Belgian endive in

Belgian endive, it will add a pop of welcome
color to your Thanksgiving table.
