Thanksgiving Dinner Menu Ideas and Recipes

Setting up the table for Thanksgiving dinner along with cooking up a storm is one of our favorite things to do. Do you have leftover pumpkins from Halloween? Well, hold onto them for your tablescape! We love using what we already have to create a beautiful table setting by adding decor to not just the center of the table, but atop the individual place settings as well.

When it comes to cooking a feast, we at Savor love all of our recipes equally. But, for Thanksgiving, we can only make so much food. So, we took on the task of narrowing down our recipes to create a Thanksgiving menu. We even threw in a fun recipe for the days after Thanksgiving when you want more than just a leftover turkey sandwich every day for the week.

Before we jump into the Thanksgiving dinner recipes for our delectable appetizers, sides and dessert, let’s begin with the turkey. We put an untraditional twist on a traditional dish with our herb and Parmesan Crusted Turkey recipe. Yes, you read that right. Herb and Parmesan crusted!
