Tim's Thanksgiving Menu

Oven Roasted Turkey – This traditional, in-the-bag roasted turkey recipe is easy to prepare and always gives the same results — moist and tender turkey meat.

Thanksgiving Menu - Simple Mashed Potatoes

Simple Mashed Potatoes – Move over instant mashed potatoes. This recipe uses fresh potatoes blended with butter and milk to create those perfect, smooth mashed potatoes everyone loves.

Thanksgiving Menu - Sage Sausage Dressing

Sage Sausage Dressing – This dressing is one my mom has always made — her dad hated dry stuffing and when she made this he was always pleased with how moist it is. I still make this dressing every holiday season!

Thanksgiving Menu - Sautéed Collard Greens

Pan Sautéed Collard Greens – Gotta have some greens! These are made without bacon so that vegetarians can enjoy them as well.

Thanksgiving Menu - Acorn Squash

Roasted Acorn Squash – It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without roasting a root veggie or two and this is the perfect make-ahead recipe. All you have to do is return the squash to the oven to get warm on the day of your feast!

Thanksgiving Menu - Buttermilk Biscuits

Buttermilk Biscuits – A holiday meal isn’t complete without flaky, warm buttermilk biscuits. This recipe comes from the Holladay House in Orange, VA.

Thanksgiving Menu - Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet Potato Pie – This is the closest recipe we can come to that was as good as my grandmother’s sweet potato pie! This pie can be made ahead and frozen several weeks in advance. Simply remove from the freezer one day before serving.

Thanksgiving Menu - Impossible Pecan Pie

Impossible Pecan Pie – This pie is not impossible at all. It even makes it’s own crust and can be made weeks in advance and frozen. Bring out of freezer to thaw one day before the big feast!

Thanksgiving Menu - Cranberry Fizz

Cranberry Fizz Cocktail – Cranberry juice and sparkling water make for a festive mocktail and add a nice splash of color to the table.
