Thanksgiving Recipes - What to cook for Thanksgiving

Happy Saturday friends! Since there are only a few days left until Thanksgiving, I'm sure most of you already have your Thanksgiving Menu planned out. If you don't, no worries because this post is filled with my favorite Thanksgiving recipes. Whether I'm cooking for a crowd or just the family, I like to serve Turkey and Ham with a variety of sides and dessert choices. 

I have several Thanksgiving recipes on my site, but I have narrowed down my favorites to share with you. Several of these dishes are make ahead recipes just look for the * in front of the recipe title (just remember to assemble and freeze those dishes unbaked). Hopefully, I included something for everyone! Click the title of each photo to get the full recipe. 🍂

Slow Cooker Holiday Ham - Some folks like turkey and ham for Thanksgiving so I'm sharing two easy Ham recipes.


If you're looking for Thanksgiving Morning Breakfast Ideas, check out this holiday post for some simple and tasty recipes that can be prepared ahead of time or in the morning. I always make two breakfast items, a sweet recipe and savory dish to please everyone. 

I love to have a few appetizers and dips available for guests to snack on before the meal and throughout the day. Deviled EggsCharleston Cheese DipCrock Pot Party MeatballsQueso DipHot Corn DipCranberry Pepper Jelly Dip and these Ranch Sausage Stars are a few of my favorite crowd-pleasers. I like to use my triple crock pot, because everything stays warm and is easily accessible for guests to serve themselves. You can also check out my appetizer tab for more recipes. 

Thanksgiving is a time of year when families come together, which more than likely means you will have a lot of children running around the house. Keeping the kids busy while the adults prepare the Thanksgiving feast can sometimes be a big challenge. 

These cute Thanksgiving Sugar Cookies & Pilgrim Hats are the perfect activity to entertain the kids while everyone else is busy in the kitchen or visiting with family and friends. These festive turkey cookies start with pre-baked sugar cookies, decorated with chocolate frosting, Indian or candy corn, edible candy eyes, colored icing and sprinkles. 

Personally, I have found the more activities you have available, the less likely the kids will be underfoot. You can also enlist the help of the older kids to monitor the whole activity, because both of these cookie activities are a fun for everyone!
