Favorite Family Thanksgiving Menu Recipes

25 November 2019

Hello! Are you ready for this week?? I love Thanksgiving. Love, love, love it. Family, friends, and FOOD.  We are hosting this year and I thought I'd share our favorite traditional Thanksgiving menu with links to the recipes. We usually divide up food assignments with guests that are coming but this is usually what our spread consists of with time-tested favorites.

Lime Slush -- this is from my sister Kristin's mother-in-law, Jill.  Perfect with a cheese and cracker tray before the big feast!

Kate's Thanksgiving Turkey  -- This turkey is SO good. We also tried smoking it this year and it was delicious.  OR we also loveSam's Club Smoked Turkey -- cooked and ready to go!

Creamy Mashed Potatoes
 (We also add sour cream)

Make Ahead Gravy so nice to have ready to go so you're not sweating it right before dinner. 

Classic Sage Stuffing
 I love a classic, larger cubed stuffing. This is my favorite.

One Hour Rolls these are SO good. And don't take all day! We love them with honey butter and jam.

The Best Thanksgiving Yams / Sweet Potato CasseroleI got this from my sister Kelsey -- this is basically her recipe and we just double it and put it in a 9X13 glass pan. If you want to use real sweet potatoes, usually use 5 large ones and just cook them in the instant pot or microwave and then mash them. Canned yams are super fast and convenient though. I dream of this stuff! 

Green Beans with Bacon

Cranberry Fluff Salad -- this recipe is my Mom. ♥ She got the recipe from the Lion House Cookbook and made it every Thanksgiving. I can't imagine Thanksgiving dinner without it.

Raspberry Pretzel Jello Salad It's more like a dessert but we love this stuff. This is the favorite recipe we use.

Our Favorite Salad  or  Pear Arugula Salad 

and of course pies! Here are recipes for some that we love:

Triple Berry Pie

Salted Caramel Apple Pie

Raspberry Cream Pie

I hope these links and recipes help --  have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'll be back later this week with Black Friday deals
and of course bright and early on Cyber Monday!!
