If you’re still choosing recipes for your Thanksgiving menu, don’t panic — you’re not alone. Finalizing your Thanksgiving menu can be challenging to say the very least. For such a big and celebratory feast, we often put unintentional pressure on each dish to be the best, and deciding something as simple as which pumpkin pie to bring to grandma’s house can feel downright overwhelming. But we’re here to help.
As food editors, we read and cook our way through hundreds of recipes throughout the year. To help you make the final call on what you’ll be cooking, we pulled together our official recommendations for your holiday table. This tried-and-true list include classics that we swear by as well as new and fun twists that are worth breaking tradition for. They’re the recipes we’ll be cooking and we hope you love them just as much as we do.
