Thanksgiving Menu and Prep Tips



Thanksgiving is one my favorite Holidays! As a home cook, it is also one of the busiest and requires preparation and organization.



Here's my current Thanksgiving Menu


Roasted turkey

Mashed Potatoes and Gravy

Dressing

Candied Yams

Mustard/Turnip Greens

Macaroni and Cheese

Rolls

Cranberry Sauce


For Dessert...

Pecan Pie

Sweet Potato Pie

Bread Pudding



My tips for a successful Thanksgiving!


  1. Plan your menu in advance! This is one of the most obvious but planning in advance = less stress the day before and of Thanksgiving.

  2. Identify which sides and desserts can be made the day in advance. I typically make the pecan and sweet potato pie in advance. Also, I prep the macaroni and cheese the day before.

  3. Time the turkey with your optimal dinner time. The turkey is the 'star' of the menu, so be sure you time it to match your desired meal time.

  4. Enjoy!
