Delicious Recipes For Your Most Memorable Thanksgiving Ever

Try your hand at our new Southern sideboard.

Each year, gathering around the Thanksgiving table makes for fond memories that will last your family a lifetime. It's a day of thanks and feasting, spent together. The Thanksgiving table is undoubtedly the star of the show, bulging from the weight of our fat turkey, decadent side dishes, and full pitchers of sweet tea. Classic cornbread dressing, creamy corn pudding, savory green bean casserole, and sweet candied yams—the meal simply isn’t right without them. This month, we decided to create a fresh Thanksgiving menu that your family won’t forget. We cooked up nine classics that everyone expects—our tried-and-true side dishes—but with an adventurous twist. We paired each classic with two flavorful variations that’ll get the table talking. And then we went on a little road trip, an imaginary excursion through 10 Southern states, each one with a particular pie worthy of your own holiday table. From a streusel-topped persimmon pie to a peanut-speckled pie with brown sugar-bourbon whipped cream, these delicious desserts will convince you to switch up your dessert table. We figured that just like guests around our table, there’s always room for one more memorable addition. Wherever you call home, these Thanksgiving recipes will give you even more reasons to be thankful!
