114 Thanksgiving Recipes
(Scenes from our Thanksgiving in 2012)
Whether we’re ready or not, Thanksgiving will be here in just two weeks from Thursday. How did it already become the holiday season?! We are hosting Thanksgiving this year (yay!), which means that I need to finalize a menu ASAP, and thought you might be in the same situation. To help you kick off your menu planning, I’ve gathered all of the Thanksgiving-worthy recipes that are on the site and brought them here in one list for you. There are some breakfast (slash brunch) ideas, as well as tons of side dishes and desserts, drinks and even some ideas for leftovers. I’ll be sharing more Thanksgiving recipes over the next couple of weeks, but these should get you going and get your menu started!

What are your favorite Thanksgiving dishes? Any recipe requests?
Awesome roundup! That had to have taken forever to put together!
So many great ideas for Thanksgiving . . . or just tonight!
I am having trouble ‘pinning’ this item. I am getting a message that there is not an image.url present. Any help you provide will be appreciated. Chris
Hi Christina, I just tried to pin it using a couple of different methods and all seems to be working. Perhaps Pinterest was having a hiccup when you originally tried?
These all look amazing! I’m curious what the Brie plate with crackers and spread is….. I LOVE CHEESE!! Stinky smelly creamy cheese!
So excited to see some Thanksgiving breakfast recipes! Usually we do lunch with my family and dinner with hubby’s but this year we have to do breakfast with his family instead – this will help with some inspiration on what to make.
Wow! And now I am set for Thanksgiving! :-)
Thanks, Michelle! I always appreciate your recipe collections. Makes it easy to find delicious things to try. Will you let us know what you’re fixing for your first Thanksgiving as Mrs. CCC?
I really enjoy reading your posts, thanks for the recipes and doggie pics on Friday.
Wow! Now THAT’S a roundup! Thanks for sharing your favorite Thanksgiving Day and Fall recipes with us, Michelle!
Can I just say that I’ve been really disappointed in the direction your blog is heading lately? From using cool whip in everything, to the quality of your photos, to the increased frequency of these throwaway “round up” posts. Michelle, this is your JOB and you have really been phoning it in lately.
And for the love, I DON’T CARE WHAT KIND OF SALAD DRESSING YOU ARE CURRENTLY OBESSESED WITH! Your Friday Favorite posts give me the rages.
Ooh Alex, always so crabby? Just unsubscribe if the posts cause you so much pain. Doubt if you’ll be missed.
Uh-oh…….someone get Alex a slice of pumpkin pie with an extra dollop of Cool Whip…STAT!
So many good recipes, thanks for sharing :)
The thing I love so much about Thanksgiving is that there is NO menu to put together – we have the same dishes every year because they are traditional family favorites, some of which we only have once a year. It just would not be TG dinner without our favorites. That said, we have made minor adjustments along the way – some have stuck (like dried cranberries in our bread stuffing), and others not so much (like mashed turnip).
Thanks for the great roundup! I should practice some of these recipes before Thanksgiving day!
What an awesome resource! Thanks for putting it together. Just pinned it :)
Wow! Thanks for all the awesome recipes! You rock!
I could go for one of those white chocolate steamers this morning for sure!
Wow that is a lot of recipes! I will have to check them all out!!! Thank you so much for sharing!!
I would love to see how you do your thanks giving bird! that deep fried one look amazing!
your dessert recipes all look so good but that mouse cake has won my heart
Hi Belinda, I brine it overnight, then we deep-fry it! SO delicious!
I so want I try…ALL of your pumpkin recipes!!
As for T-day favorites, I’m a nut for a simple bread stuffing with the pepperidge farm croutons, celery, and onions. I’m also a fanatic for cranberry sauces-I made a whiskey one last year that was insanely good:
