My Favorite Thanksgiving Recipes!

This post is a compilation of all of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes that I have here on the blog! Consider this your Thanksgiving meal guide, minus the turkey. (I’ve actually only made a turkey once or twice 🙈) Thank you for being here, and enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Breakfast

Best Ever Cinnamon Rolls!

These Cinnamon Rolls really are the BEST EVER! They’re HUGE and packed with brown sugar and cinnamon, then topped with a buttery, powdered sugar glaze.

Coffee Cake!

Coffee Cake is my favorite Thanksgiving morning breakfast! A warm cinnamon streusel topping on a moist sour-cream cake base, layered with brown sugar and cinnamon and topped with a powdered sugar glaze.

Side Dishes

Easy Macaroni Corn Casserole!

Mix together corn, cream style corn, dry macaroni, Velveeta cheese, and butter and throw it in the oven and you have a super easy and delicious side dish! P.S. You can also make this in the Crock Pot!!

Instant Pot Mac and Cheese!

Instant Pot Mac and Cheese is perfect for Thanksgiving because it’s one less thing to try to fit in the oven. It’s creamy, cheesy, deliciousness and the perfect side dish!

The Best Cheesy Mashed Potatoes!

You cannot possibly have Thanksgiving dinner without Mashed Potatoes, especially cheesy mashed potatoes! This recipe takes classic mashed potatoes and adds sour cream and rich cheddar cheese to make the perfect creamy potato side dish!


Snickers Apple Salad!

Snickers Apple Salad might not be a traditional Thanksgiving salad, but it was always on our Thanksgiving table growing up, so it is to me! Cool whip, Snickers, and apples…you can’t get much better than that!

Orange Fluff Jello Salad!

In my opinion, no holiday dinner is complete without a jello salad, and Orange Fluff Jello Salad is one of the best!


Butterhorn Rolls!

These are the perfect Thanksgiving Rolls. Buttery, soft, and delicious! They are definitely more of a process, but trust me, THEY’RE WORTH IT! I’ve been making these for my family Thanksgiving since I was 9 years old.

Or if you’re looking for a simpler roll recipe…

Dinner Rolls!

These quick and easy dinner rolls are the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table, or any meal! They’re light, fluffy, buttery, and impossible to resist!


Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie is a super simple no-bake pie that is a must for Thanksgiving! With only five ingredients you can whip it up in no time and put it in the freezer while you prepare the rest of your feast!

Biscoff Cookie Butter Cheesecake!

The warm flavors of my newest recipe on the blog, Biscoff Cookie Butter Cheesecake, just scream Thanksgiving! A crunchy Biscoff cookie crust, cookie butter and cream cheese filling, and topped with homemade whipped cream!

If you need a dessert that’s as quick and easy as possible to throw together, this one is always a hit.


Scotcheroos are a Midwest favorite! This no-bake cereal treat is packed with peanut butter and a rich chocolate and butterscotch topping!

I will leave you with my favorite Thanksgiving tip, make everything that you can ahead of time. Rolls and pies can freeze for days before the big day! Get everything that has to bake prepared in the days leading up to Thanksgiving as well, then all you’ll have to do is throw everything in the oven!

That’s it for this year! I hope this post for my favorite Thanksgiving recipes was helpful. Happy cooking and baking and have a wonderful Thanksgiving, friends!!
