Classic Thanksgiving Recipes with a Twist!


29 Printable Classic Thanksgiving Recipes

Here is the secret to a beautifully juicy, mouth-watering Thanksgiving turkey, along with all the trimmings AND desserts that will make you wish every day was Thanksgiving.

From the cookbook: 29 Printable Thanksgiving Recipes

I love Thanksgiving for so many reasons, but I can’t lie; the desserts are near the top of the list! Or maybe it’s the turkey. Although the Sausage and Pretzel Roll Stuffing is up there. Oh, who am I kidding? It’s all delicious. You really can’t go wrong with a holiday that’s all about food!

There’s always plenty to enjoy, but the centerpiece of every Thanksgiving meal is the Turkey and stuffing, but it seems every year there are so many questions about the best way to cook a Turkey. One thing that almost everyone worries about is making sure the turkey doesn’t dry out while it’s in the oven. If that sounds familiar, I have some good news for you. There’s a really simple way to keep your turkey moist and tender and full of amazing flavor: Brine.

In this Thanksgiving cookbook, I have a recipe for a simple, but delicious brine for your turkey, along with all the details on when and how to brine your turkey so it comes out of the oven tasting perfect. And what goes with a turkey better than homemade Mushroom Gravy? I have an easy Mushroom Gravy recipe that you’ll want to make all year long. It’s that good!

You’ll also find some unique (and tasty!) stuffing recipes. The Everything Bagel Stuffing is ideal for vegetarians, and it has a little extra pizazz from the bagel. The Sausage and Pretzel Roll Stuffing is amazing, too. You get the best of both worlds here; the warmth of spicy sausage and the snack-like pretzel rolls. Yum!

Of course, a Thanksgiving celebration wouldn’t be complete without turkey, but I’m going to share with you a little twist on the classic big bird. If you aren’t feeding a lot of people and don’t want to cook an entire turkey, I’ll share how I make Thanksgiving turkey breasts. This is exactly what my husband and I would eat when we wanted a quiet Thanksgiving meal.


Dessert is up next, including a recipe for Pumpkin Donuts that’s easier than ever. These donuts don’t require any specific equipment or skills. This recipe is all about making donuts in a regular kitchen, with only a mixer, donut baking pan, and just a few ingredients.

The Pecan Pie Brownies are absolutely amazing, too. I could eat these all year long! You get the chocolatey sweetness of brownies mixed with the wonderful crunch of pecan pie. This might be one of my favorite dessert recipes to share!

For something truly decadent, there’s a recipe here for Pumpkin Spice Poke Cake. This cake is infused with rich caramel and topped with whipped cream and toffee, so you know it’s absolutely delicious. And like all of my recipes, it’s easy and quick so you don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen.

That’s just some of what you get in 29 Printable Thanksgiving Recipes. This cookbook gives you everything you need to prepare a complete Thanksgiving dinner. The full-color, downloadable cookbook has each recipe clearly written out, along with pictures of each dish so you know exactly what to expect. There’s also an accompanying recipes videos where I’ll walk you through some of the entrees, sides, and desserts featured in the cookbook. Better yet, when you get this cookbook, you have instant access to a growing library of cookbooks, recipe videos, and magazine issues. Join me, Chef Addie Gundry, and get RecipeLion’s 29 Printable Thanksgiving Recipes and have fun in the kitchen this Thanksgiving.


One of the recipes in this cookbook might just change your life. Did you know there’s a secret to the perfect Thanksgiving Turkey? There’s nothing like Homemade Brine to turn your turkey into a Thanksgiving showpiece. Brining is important because it gives your turkey the chance to absorb all kinds of deliciousness before you even put it in the oven. The turkey rests in the brine for about 24 hours and it soaks in the flavors so your turkey is juicy and ready to go into the oven on Thanksgiving morning.

You’ll need a large pot filled with about a gallon of water. Add in your brown sugar, kosher salt, and peppercorns. Then add the cinnamon sticks and bay leaves. (Get fresh bay leaves if you can; they smell so good and give the brine a wonderful flavor.) Squeeze the juice from your orange wedges into the brine, and add the juiced wedges to the brine. Bring the mixture to a boil until the salt and brown sugar dissolves, flavoring your water.

Remove the brine from the heat and let it cool completely before putting your turkey in. 24 hours later, your turkey is ready to roast!

The Homemade Brine recipe is just one of the great recipes in this cookbook. You’ll also learn how to make fabulous desserts, like Pecan Pie Brownies.

I could be wrong, but Pecan Pie Brownies might be the best dessert in the world. You get the rich, chocolatey goodness of brownies and the sweet crunch of pecan pie all in one. I can guarantee these won’t last long around your Thanksgiving table. The good news is that they’re easy enough that you can make more any time you want.

Start by making your brownies. I’m making double fudge brownies, but you can use your favorite brownie mix. Once you mix that together, pour the batter into a greased baking dish, and then top with pecans and caramel sauce. It’s really that easy! All you have to do at this point is bake it and give it some time to cool.

Once they’re ready, cut them into small squares and serve on a platter.
