Embracing the idea of household favorites, we asked our food editors which dishes they cherish most, and let their answers inspire the quintessential Thanksgiving meal. Our menu is meant to be adaptable: Prepare it entirely or choose individual recipes, weaving them into your customary spread.
Wish your Thanksgiving could be more like Martha's? This year, Martha designed her ultimate holiday menu, featuring a simple yet flavorful turkey. Pick and choose dishes to add to your usual lineup of favorites, or try the whole menu for a delicious feast.
