These new-fangled Thanksgiving recipes add some welcome, if unexpected, intrigue to the traditional holiday meal. In the best possible way.
Baked Brie Stuffed with Cranberries
A twist on tradition that uses the tarntess of cranberry to contrast with the richness of Brie.
Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Not your everyday mashed potatoes, these are ridiculously rich and comforting thanks to butter, sour cream, Parmesan, roasted garlic, and caramelized onions. Leftovers freeze and reheat beautifully.
Sweet and Spicy Cranberry Relish
Made in minutes from just five ingredients, this cranberry relish belongs in your weeknight repertoire and not just on your Thanksgiving table. Did we mention it freezes beautifully?
Dry Brine Turkey
All the juicy, tender perks of brining. None of the fuss of finding a container large enough to contain a turkey and cramming it in your already overstuffed fridge.
Broccoli Rabe with Balsamic Brown Butter
Think you don't like broccoli rabe? Think again. We defy you to try this butter-blasted kin to broccoli and not be converted.
Roast Winter Squash with Pistachios
A simple and elegant way to gussy up your plain old winter squash standby.
Baked Mushrooms, Broken Bread
An effortless, elegant side that takes inspiration from two enduring entertaining icons: the stuffed mushroom and Thanksgiving stuffing.
Hot Buttered Rum Apple Pie
An unconventional approach to apple pie that happily involves booze and lotsa butter. Even more memorable than the classic.
Pumpkin Ice Cream
The pumpkin spice everything craze tends to leave us underwhelmed about pumpkin spice anything. Not this.
Pumpkin Sweet Potato Pie
This riff on the classic marshmallow sweet potato casserole of your childhood plunks the sweet staple squarely where it belongs. Dessert.
