Roast Turkey with Herb Butter
Drying the bread cubes and cooking the vegetables a day in advance helps this stuffing come together quickly on Thanksgiving Day.
Herbed Roasted Turkey
This traditional holiday bird brings much more to the table than just great taste. Our version, which is packed with protein, is rubbed with a blend of parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme, and garlic.
Perfect for any festive occasion, these sugar cookies are a blank canvas for decorating and cutting into any shape you desire. The dough can be made the night before, then decorated the following day. All you need is some royal icing and a little creativity to make stunning cookies. If you're looking for a homemade food gift or have a cookie swap coming up, Martha's sugar cookie recipe is a good place to start.
This recipe calls for brining the turkey for 24 hours, so plan accordingly. If you choose not to brine, skip the first two steps. If your roasting pan fits only sideways in the oven, rotate the pan every hour so the turkey cooks and browns evenly.
Broccoli-Cheddar Hash-Brown Casserole
A riff on Swiss rosti, this casserole tastes like a loaded baked potato, but with the crispness of hash browns. A mixture of cheese, shredded potato, broccoli, and egg is first cooked in a skillet and then baked in the oven until golden brown. Crumbled bacon adds a delicious finishing touch.
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
This classic potato dish is always on everyone's favorites list for a Thanksgiving side.
Chewy Chocolate-Gingerbread Cookies
This cookie recipe is beloved by our food editors, who make it every Christmas as part of their holiday cookie boxes. What makes the cookies so irresistible? We think it's the combination of fresh and ground ginger, molasses, and chunks of semisweet chocolate. These chocolate ginger cookies are sophisticated enough for adults, but chocolatey enough for children.
