This is a small roundup of delicious Thanksgiving recipes! Tried and true recipes that have stood the Thanksgiving test of time in our house. I hope you love them like we do!
Delicious Thanksgiving Recipes:
This raspberry pretzel jello salad is the number one Thanksgiving recipe tradition in our house. We absolutely LOVE it!! It’s beautiful and sweet enough to be a dessert, but it’s Thanksgiving, so we serve it as a side dish.
These Easy Garlic Parmesan Rolls will cut down the time you spend on Thanksgiving dinner by a LONG time because they use Rhode’s rolls…but no one will ever be able to tell. They are absolutely delicious, and I’ve never met anyone that could stop at eating just one.
These stuffed mushrooms would be an incredible Thanksgiving recipe used as an appetizer for your family and friends! Also, you have to click on the link and check out my hair…this was a LONG time ago but this recipe stands the test of time!
WHAT TO WEAR ON THANKSGIVING

My husband makes a mean applesauce pie. Recipe from his grandmother

Mac n Cheese – this is a staple on thanksgiving and throughout the year too if I’m being honest! Haha
1 pound dry small pasta I used elbow
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup all purpose flour
8 oz cream cheese
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
4 cups milk I used skim
4 cups finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Cook pasta according to package directions. I recommend cooking the pasta a minute less than the directions. Drain and set aside for a few minutes.
melt butter and cream cheese into a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once melted whisk in flour, salt and pepper. Stir and cook for 3-4 minutes. Slowly whisk in milk, stirring continuously until thickened, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to a simmer and stir in cheese until melted.
Transfer cooked pasta to large dutch oven or pot over low heat. Pour cheese sauce over top, stirring to combine. This is a thick and creamy sauce. To thin the sauce, add a few tablespoons of milk at a time until at desired consistency. It’s very rich and creamy.

Here is my grandma’s Cornbread dressing recipe. It’s a family favorite and so easy!
1 1/2 cup Pepperidge farm cornbread dressing
3/4 cup Pepperidge farm herb dressing
1 can cream of chicken soup
About 1/2 cup chicken broth
We mix everything together (except the butter) and add the chicken broth last, that’s the one ingredient she didn’t write the measurement down for. Just add till you get the consistency you want. Put dots of butter on the top and bake on 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
My favorite dish for Thanksgiving is sweet potatoe casserole. It’s simply the best thing ever! I make it every year.
I’m a simple girl and I’m super happy with just turkey, potatoes, and gravy!

My grandma makes rolls similar to the ones in your post! They’re amazing. She gets the self-rising rolls and rolls them in butter and tons of parmesan. Let’s them rise and bakes them for about 15-20 minutes. We always use them for our turkey leftovers. With tons of cranberry. SOOO good!
