Hello, welcome! We're still a ways out for Thanksgiving. Some of you may have your menus planned but I'm guessing many don't. So today I want to round up some recipes from the past few years, just in case you need some inspiration or ideas for your Holiday dinner. Let’s do this Thanksgiving Recipe Round Up!
Below, I've collected 6 recipes and put together a Thanksgiving recipe roundup with some new takes on old favorites. If you're interested in making any or all, just follow the links for the full recipe card.

I am so happy you’re here because today was a real family affair in the kitchen. Alex and I have teamed up to share our Turkey Day with you! I realize things may be a bit quieter for you this year, but that doesn’t mean we have to give up on the flavors of Thanksgiving; the time spent preparing the dishes and the celebration of what we are thankful for. I will be making a number of dishes for the Djalali table which I will share with you next week, but today let’s focus on Smoked Turkey and Sweet Potato Casserole.
Welcome, welcome! I am glad you’re with me today as we make our way through the Thanksgiving menu. Today we are focusing on dressing. Cornbread Andouille Dressing, to be precise. I do a slightly different stuffing every year. But as much as I think I will do a different bread as the base, I can’t seem to quit cornbread! Sometimes I dream of a crusty sourdough dressing…well, maybe next year. Speaking of bread…I have an exciting project here at the house coming up in the weeks after Thanksgiving that I am so excited to share with you! So stay tuned….
Hello, welcome! Yesterday I told you to stay tuned for how to use some of that leftover preserved lemon paste from our Preserved Lemon Chicken. Well, you don’t have to wait long. Today’s Brussels Sprout Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette incorporates some of that leftover preserved lemon paste into a savory, sweet vinaigrette that will gently wilt shredded Brussels sprouts, coating toasted pecans and dried cranberries. Toss in fresh mint and parsley, top with fluffy grated Parmesan and we have a wonderful salad for your Thanksgiving table. Let’s get to it!
Of course mashed potatoes are a Thanksgiving staple. But, if you want to mix things up a bit this year, or if you are just looking for a super easy way to prepare potatoes that will yield a satisfying mix of crispy and velvety tender potato textures, this Potato Galette is your answer. With only a few pantry staples, this dish comes together easily. Let’s get right to it! Super Easy Potato Galette.
Hello Everyone! Today is all about dessert. I am excited to share this one with you because I had never made a cheesecake before! Its reputation for being difficult has always deterred me. But for Thanksgiving this year, I want to do one dessert that was unexpected. We will have Pecan Pie, and Beth is bringing a pumpkin dessert, so this cheesecake will be the outlier. The rebel Thanksgiving cheesecake! This isn’t a pumpkin cheesecake, or anything Thanksgiving-y like that. Today we are talking about the classic Cheesecake. (But, I do have one little twist…)
Hello and welcome to Djalali Cooks! It’s wonderful you’re here today. I have just discovered my new favorite Thanksgiving Side and I want to share it with you. Thanksgiving food… we all have our favorites; perhaps we favor certain dishes more for their nostalgia factor than for how they actually taste. And perhaps we have some truly favorite dishes that we only indulge in at Thanksgiving. Whichever the case may be, this Fall Harvest Salad is a great addition to the Thanksgiving Table.
Most of the Thanksgiving menu consists of brown or neutral colored food. Have you ever noticed that? The cranberry sauce or jello salad being the only items with a pop of color on the table… Well, adding some vivacious green, purple and orange will beckon your eyes and your appetite – a perfect palate cleanser between heavy bites of mashed potatoes, gravy and dressing.
