Thanksgiving Menu 2021 is here! Featuring a simple turkey recipe, a perfectly glazed ham, fresh twists on classic side dishes and a warm, cinnamon-speckled apple pie. This Thanksgiving menu is traditionally delicious all while adding new flare to beloved favorites. Let’s dig in!
For this year’s Thanksgiving menu, I wanted to feature classic recipes that everyone loves, but with a spin! Especially with the side dishes. Green bean casserole gets a face lift with fresh green beans and a homemade mushroom cream sauce. Sweet potato casserole gets the addition of toffee-like and nutty brown butter. Mashed potatoes take the sideline as cheesy scalloped potatoes take the spotlight. A smoked ham gets basted with an apple cider glaze that makes it perfectly caramelized. And a turkey keeps it calm, cool and collected with a simple recipe and some liquid gold gravy to accompany it.
Simple Roasted Turkey is a hassle-free turkey recipe! With no brining required, the turkey is rubbed down with a garlic herb butter and roasted until perfectly golden brown. Make roasting a turkey a breeze with this Simple Roasted Turkey recipe! Perfect main dish for any holiday table.
Apple Cider Glazed Ham combines the classic flavors of pork and apples. A smoked ham is basted with a homemade apple cider glaze bursting with flavor from fresh herbs and seasonings. As the ham bakes, the outside becomes decadently caramelized and infused with apple cider glaze. The perfect main dish for any holiday table!
Scalloped Potatoes are classically delicious and cheesy. Thinly sliced potatoes are layered together with a decadent cream sauce and topped with cheddar cheese, Baked until golden brown and bubbly, these scalloped potatoes are comforting, delicious and shareable!

Easy Turkey Gravy is velvety, rich and everything a gravy should be! Simple ingredients come together to form a gravy so good that you won’t believe how easy it is. Pour it over mashed potatoes, slices of turkey or cover the whole plate with this liquid gold and dig in!
Apple Crumb Pie is a warm and delicious dessert! A buttery pie crust is filled full of juicy apples that have been tossed with sugars and spices. Topped with a cookie-like crumb, the pie is baked until golden brown and bubbly. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the best apple pie bite!
