So from our family to yours, we’d like to share our top 12 Thanksgiving recipes. They are sure to be a hit with your family and friends this holiday season. Bon Appetit!
1) Extra-Moist Turkey
The secret to a moist and mouth-watering turkey is to cook it in an old-fashioned oval roaster that will both braise and roast the turkey at the same time, so it stays moist. Uncover the turkey the last 15 minutes to crisp the skin.
2) Italian Sausage and Bread Stuffing
This rustic and flavorful stuffing adds a rich and spicy touch.
3) Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Maple Hickory Nuts
Hickory nuts (or walnuts, pecans, or almonds) add a crunchy appeal to this flavorful side dish.
4) Spinach Salad with Toasted Hazelnuts
This healthy seasonal salad also includes Bosc pears, cranberries, and red onions.
5) Caramel Pumpkin Pie
This holiday favorite adds a distinctive nutty flavor to the filling thanks to caramelized sugar.
6) Yukon Gold and Fennel Mashed Potatoes
Roasting the fennel soften its tangy taste and bring out its natural sweetness for a delightfully different flavor.
7) Cabernet-Cranberry Sauce with Figs
Make this ahead of time to let the flavors develop.
8) Green Beans with Lemon and Pine Nuts
Just the right amount of lemon juice and lemon zest gives this traditional side dish a unique, but not overpowering, appeal.
9) Pumpkin Cheesecake with Marshmallow Sour Cream Topping
Unbelievably rich and creamy, this alluring dish just may become your favorite new holiday dessert tradition.
10) Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds
Fried sage and garlic-infused olive oil add a savory character, balancing the potatoes’ naturally sweet flavor.
11) Deconstructed Holiday Turkey
Instead of cooking a whole bird, this recipe from Food Network star Ted Allen uses frozen turkey breasts, thighs and drumsticks in savory brine that makes them extra moist.
12) Mushroom and Leek Soup
This earthy soup enhanced with thyme cream can be made several days ahead of time and reheated before serving.
