Those who think turkey is bland have probably never had a properly-dressed turkey complete with gravy and stuffing. If this is you, consider trying our sage and apple stuffing (it’s a crowd-favorite every year). Plus, it requires only 20 minutes of hands-on time so you can save your energy for entertaining your guests.
Green Bean Casserole
If there’s any food that is always warm and comforting, it’s green bean casserole. It’s like the weighted blanket of foods. It’s savory, creamy, and has crispy onions on top. The best part about this recipe from Southern Living is that it’s only five ingredients, and you’re more than welcome to use canned green beans to cut down on the prep time.
No Thanksgiving table is complete without mashed potatoes. Every kind of potato is great in our book, but something about salty, creamy mashed potatoes with turkey just can’t be beat. For a side dish that’ll have your guests going for seconds, try our brown butter mashed potatoes. They’re velvety smooth and have a hint of sage in them to tie together all the amazing flavors.
In addition to turkey, some people may roast a ham for a variety of proteins at the dinner table. If that’s not your jam, you can’t go wrong with prime rib. Some find it a lot juicier and more tender than turkey, so it’s great to cook a lot of dishes to give people their options.
Corn casserole is a fun twist on corn bread—think of it like a creamier corn bread with actual corn kernels in the mix. Our corn spoon bread is essentially just that, with a bit of thyme for an herby kick.
