If you look for some of the best traditional Thanksgiving dinner recipes, look no more because we found them for you. There is something special about a traditional and classic holiday meal, something that cannot be replaced by new and exciting flavors or aromas. It might be the memories of childhood and the family gathering together around the dinner table, it might be those special dishes your mother or grandmother used to make when you were little or it just might be the fact that, sometimes, traditional dishes are the best. So, if this year you want to indulge in the amazing flavors of the traditional Thanksgiving dishes, here are our suggestions:

Herb Roasted Turkey Recipe from The Spruce

This classic Herb Roasted Turkey recipe requires you to spread olive oil and a combination of herbs all over the turkey before placing it into the oven. If you can. only use fresh herbs or, if that is not possible, make sure you use more fresh herbs than dry herbs because fresh herbs will give your turkey amazing flavors. You can use a mix of dill, chives, rosemary, and thyme, you can use Cajun seasoning or you can put together a mix of your favorite herbs, just make sure you rub the mix all over the turkey.

Classic Traditional Thanksgiving Stuffing from Averie Cooks

There are numerous stuffing recipes you can find on various food blogs and websites. Some recipes require fruits, nuts, mushrooms and numerous other ingredients but if you want to experience the taste of the classic Thanksgiving stuffing, try Averie Cooks’ recipe. This simple recipe requires the traditional ingredients for stuffing – bread, broth, butter, onion, sage, rosemary, parsley, and celery. Averie’s family serves this stuffing as a dressing but you can use it for stuffing the turkey because the stuffing is absolutely delicious.

Perfect Turkey Gravy from Center Cut Cook

Thanksgiving dinner is not Thanksgiving dinner without the perfect turkey gravy or it shouldn’t be complete if you want the traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey gravy is easy to make and if you don’t believe us, try the recipe included here and we guarantee that you will find the instructions easy to follow and you will love the result. All you need for this classic turkey gravy is turkey stock (chicken stock if you do not have turkey stock), flour, butter and black pepper.

Cranberry Orange Sauce from Texanerin

Cranberry sauce is another Thanksgiving staple that should be on your dinner table. Cranberry sauce is very easy to make and is a great dairy-free sauce that can be enjoyed by your vegan family members or friends (make sure you also prepare some vegan dishes for them though). The cranberry sauce recipe we included here is actually a quick and easy cranberry orange sauce, sweetened with honey that is ready in approximately 15 minutes.

Awesome Baked Ham from Genius Kitchen

Baked ham is another great idea for the Thanksgiving dinner table especially if your family doesn’t like turkey and you think chicken is not festive enough for such an occasion. This Awesome Baked Ham is made with simple ingredients that you already have in your kitchen. The ham is melt-in-your-mouth good and the glaze is so good it will make all your dinner guests ask for one more slice of hame with some glaze on top.

Nanou’s Garlic Green Beans from The Life Jolie

A classic side dish that shouldn’t miss from your Thanksgiving table is the Garlic Green Beans side dish. This side dish is very easy to make and it requires only a few ingredients including green beans (of course), garlic, parsley (fresh preferably) and a little bit of butter. We’re pretty sure you will love this recipe and you will use it for busy weeknights dinner too.

Mashed Potatoes from A Spicy Perspective

In case you started to panic because we talked about the green beans but we didn’t say anything about mashed potatoes, it is time to relax. We couldn’t have an article about the classic Thanksgiving dinner and not include the classic and delicious mashed potatoes. This recipe we included here is not only an amazing recipe that will give you delicious and rich mashed potatoes on the table but the recipe includes some tips and tricks for making the perfect mashed potatoes all the time.

Light & Fluffy Angel Biscuits from Lauren’s Latest

Angel biscuits are not only for the Christmas table, they are perfect for Thanksgiving and they are very easy to make so why not making them instead of buying regular bread. Regular bread is boring, these biscuits are the perfect mix of biscuits and fluffy rolls and they are great with the Thanksgiving main dishes.

Waldorf Salad from Tastes Better From Scratch

Waldorf salad is very popular on the Thanksgiving dinner table or on the Christmas dinner table. The traditional Waldorf salad includes apples, grapes, celery, walnuts or other nuts and a deliciously creamy dressing. There are numerous variations of the Waldorf salad but if you are looking for the classic one, this is it. Check the article linked above for the full recipe and instructions.

Fully Loaded Sweet Potatoes from The Novice Chef

Thanksgiving without sweet potatoes is like Christmas without cookies or so we think. You can make savory sweet potatoes and serve them as a side dish or you can make them as sweet as they can be if you make these Fully Loaded Sweet Potatoes. In case you are curious what ingredients are used to make the fully loaded sweet potatoes, well, besides the obvious (ehm sweet potatoes), you will have to add marshmallows, butter, cinnamon, sugar, and pecans. Sounds amazing, right?

Apple Pie from Lil’ Luna

Apple pie is not only a classic Thanksgiving dessert, it is a classic dessert PERIOD. If you want to make the perfect apple pie this Thanksgiving, we recommend making the homemade crust instead of buying the crust from the grocery store. The homemade crust is definitely better! The apple filling is obviously delicious but we’re pretty sure you know that.

Pumpkin Pie from Le Crème de la Crumb

If you prefer pumpkin pie to apple pie or if you want to have more than one type of pie on your Thanksgiving dinner table, try this Pumpkin Pie recipe we listed because it is very easy to make, it makes a delicious flavorful pie and the crust is baked to perfection.
