It’s important to have a few appetizers so your guests can subtly ease into the meal. A few easy appetizers for Thanksgiving include dinner rolls, pigs in a blanket and veggies with dip. If you are interested in doing something a little more labor-intensive, you can make a turkey cheese ball that takes about 30 minutes to prepare or green bean casserole bundles, which have a prep time of 10 minutes and bake for about 40 minutes.

Side Dishes

Side dishes tend to be more labor-intensive, but they are one of the best parts of the Thanksgiving meal. It’s good to have salad at your table, and one seasonal option is a cranberry walnut salad, which is quick to prepare and has a delicious and fruity taste. Corn and stuffing are other notable dishes, but what if you combine them? Check out this corn stuffing balls recipe, which requires 20 minutes of preparation and 30 minutes to bake.


Turkey is traditionally the prime focus of a Thanksgiving meal. This juicy Thanksgiving turkey recipe only takes 20 minutes to prep and three hours to cook, while this garlic lemon roast turkey requires 45 minutes preparation time and 2 hours and 50 minutes to cook.


Generally, you’re going to want to have between three and five different pies for your guests, depending on how many people there are. No matter which pies you go with, your guests will be pleased. For starters, we found a caramel apple pie recipe that is mouthwatering. The pumpkin pie is part of the Thanksgiving tradition, and this pumpkin pie with oat-pecan crust is a fun and tasty twist, and you can’t go wrong with a traditional pecan pie.
