Pumpkin Roll

The secret to rolling up Trisha’s cake is keeping it securely wrapped in a soft kitchen towel so you can carefully guide the cake around the sweet, creamy filling.

Sweet Potato Pudding

Whipping the sweet potatoes with eggs turns the filling into a light, airy puddinglike consistency you and your guests are going to be obsessed with.

Sausage Hors d'Oeuvres

Serving appetizers on Thanksgiving is tricky, because your guests will be hungry and want to nibble, but you don’t want them to fill up before the bird is served. Small bites like these savory sausage bites are a good bet.

Charleston Cheese Dip

Spruce up your usual cheese-and-cracker spread with this warm, perfectly gooey dip made with not one but three kinds of cheese.

Slow-Cooker Pulled Turkey

You can free up valuable oven real estate by keeping the turkey in a slow cooker. Trisha uses a bone-in, skin-on whole turkey breast, which turns tender and juicy in just a few hours.

Cran-Apple Crisp

Trisha uses salted butter, as opposed to the usual unsalted variety, in both the filling and topping for this seasonal dessert. It balances the overall sweetness and lends complexity to the recipe.

Roasted Chestnut and Apple Dressing

Fragrant thyme leaves wake up the comforting flavors in this foolproof dressing.

Orange and Maple-Glazed Turkey with Thyme-Shallot Gravy

Trisha layers the bright flavors of citrus throughout the turkey, first by stuffing the cavity with a fresh orange, then braising the bird with a sweet orange juice glaze and later using the drippings in a silky gravy.

Slow-Cooker Acorn Squash

In-season acorn squash is deliciously sweet on its own, so it doesn’t need much to boost its flavor. Trisha simply simmers it in a slow cooker with a splash of apple cider vinegar and fresh thyme.

Loaded Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Look at that cheesy topping! Trisha mixes fluffy garlic-laced potatoes with sharp cheddar, then blankets the mash with more cheese and salty bacon for a decadent finish.

Daddy’s Biscuits

Every Thanksgiving spread needs a bread to sop up all the juices — think turkey drippings, buttery gravy and remnants of cranberry relish. These tender biscuits fit the bill.
