Roasted Pumpkin Soup
Instead of sugar pumpkins, you can use other winter squash in our Roasted Pumpkin Soup recipe. Kabocha, calabaza, and Hubbard are the best alternatives. Choose a squash that feels heavy for its size and is free of soft spots. The soup can be garnished with toasted pepitas or a dollop of sour cream—or both.
Our Absolute Favorite Recipes for Thanksgiving Leftovers
Keep the party going with these innovative recipes that take your holiday leftovers from boring to brilliant.
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
This classic potato dish is always on everyone's favorites list for a Thanksgiving side.
Chocolate Pecan Pie
We've made this beloved Southern dessert even more tempting by adding dark chocolate. The pie filling puffs up during baking but settles as it cools.
Simple Scalloped Potatoes
This rich side is a crowd-pleaser that can share the oven with your roasting bird (try pairing it with our Turkey with Brown-Sugar Glaze) at Thanksgiving.
Pan Gravy from Drippings
Great gravy begins with the juices and the flavorful brown bits you scrape from the bottom of the pan after roasting a bird like our Turkey with Brown-Sugar Glaze.
Thanksgiving Menu Ideas
Sure, we have classic Thanksgiving recipes, but how about a Southern-style Thanksgiving menu? With cheesy mac ‘n cheese, bourbon gravy, and cornbread dishes?! Looking for a lighter Thanksgiving dinner? Go with some of our easy, healthy, vegetarian, or gluten-free recipe menu ideas.
Mile-High Apple Pie
Resist the urge to cut into this pie before it has cooled completely so the juices have time to thicken. This pie tastes even better the day after it has been baked.
Pumpkin Pie French Toast Recipe
There's no better way to start your morning than with this spiced French toast recipe inspired by pumpkin pie. The bread soaks up the custard to ensure a velvety consistency and autumnal flavor in every bite.
Sweet Potato-Cheesecake Squares
