Ree Sets the Table for a Cowboy-Friendly Feast on The Pioneer Woman's Ultimate Thanksgiving

Find out what to expect on The Pioneer Woman's Ultimate Thanksgiving, hosted by Ree Drummond.
Ree Drummond on The Pioneer Woman

Whether it's a steak-and-potato dinner or a hearty pasta buffet,  Ree Drummond is known for offering up a bounty of hearty plates to her brood of kids and ranch hands on The Pioneer Woman. So you can imagine the feasts she puts forth come the holiday season. Just last year she hosted the first-ever Cowboy Christmas, and next week she'll welcome fans to the ranch once again for a look at how she does turkey day on The Pioneer Woman's Ultimate Thanksgiving.

Airing Monday, Nov. 16 at 8|7c, Ree's brand-new special will not just showcase family-friendly recipes ideal for a seasonal centerpiece, but it will also introduce The Pioneer Woman's tricks for making classic dishes ahead of time — without sacrificing flavor. Her secret? Starting preparations three days prior to turkey day, counting down and checking off all of the tried-and-true elements of a down-home feast. To guarantee a stress-free Thanksgiving, she gets a head start on preparing the bird — her Maple Whiskey Turkey — and then preps the dessert, a party-perfect Gingerbread Cheesecake with Salted Caramel Sauce, so that come turkey day, she'll only have to complete some last-minute quick fixes before savoring the holiday meal with her family.

Mark your calendars for The Pioneer Woman's Ultimate Thanksgiving, airing Monday, Nov. 16 at 8|7c.
