Thanksgiving Menu Suggestions

I’m not hosting Thanksgiving this year, but I am bringing desserts and side dishes to both of the Thanksgiving dinners we’re attending.  If you are hosting, hopefully you’ve already planned your menu and may have even started prepping some of your food (thawing out that 30 pound turkey, for starters!).

I always wonder about the food bloggers who post all of the Thanksgiving recipes before Thanksgiving.  What do they do with all those pies and other dishes?  Eat them?  Freeze them and use them on Thanksgiving Day?  Give them away?

Here are some suggestions for Thanksgiving Dinner if you’re still looking for last minute ideas….


Brie Kisses

Warm Goat Cheese Toasts With Rosemary, Pecans and Honey

Butternut Squash Bisque

Main Course:

Perfect Roast Turkey

Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

Green Beans with Prosciutto

Melissa’s Brussels Sprouts

Baked Acorn Squash

Cranberry Orange Relish (recipe coming soon)

Cornbread Dressing (family recipe!)

Parker House Rolls


(the pictures in this category are lacking because the desserts always go fast!!)

Tall and Creamy Cheesecake

Sweet Potato Pecan Pie with Cinnamon Ice Cream

Cheesecake Filled Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cinnamon Buttercream

Creamy Nutella Cheesecake with Chocolate Ganache and Toasted Hazelnuts

What’s your can’t-live-without Thanksgiving dish?

From holiday

  1. I wonder the same thing about food bloggers who post all their Thanksgiving dishes ahead of time. How do they do that?

    Anyway, these are all great suggestions. By the way, thanks for reminding me of that Nutella cheesecake. I need to make that SOON!
