Printable Thanksgiving Menu and Shopping List

Thanksgiving is almost here and now is the time to start planning your menu and deciding what you will be cooking. Whether you are celebrating with close loved ones or lucky enough to see extended family and friends, the printable Ultimate Thanksgiving Menu and Grocery Shopping List I’ve created will help make your planning easy!

Thanksgiving Menu

Every year my family looks forward to a traditional Thanksgiving menu. After you sign up for my newsletter, you’ll receive an email with a link to download the pdf. Inside, you’ll find my recipes for the following items:

Smoked Turkey: I’ve ordered my Smoked Turkey this year from Drake’s Rib Shack. I’m excited to see how it turns out! If you need to order a turkey still, I’ve heard great things about this one from a friend!

I typically get mine from Greenburg Turkey in Tyler, Texas. However, this year they unfortunately had a fire and no longer shipping this year.

Spiced Ginger Orange Cranberry Sauce: This is my favorite cranberry sauce recipe.  A touch of spice and hint of orange.  The flavors are so good when they’ve had time to come together for a day or so.  It is also fabulous as the topping on a baked brie.  I find so many ways to enjoy this in November and December.  I know you will, too!

Traditional Cornbread Dressing with Gravy: I’m starting with Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Dressing and adding celery, onion and my own spices.

Brown Sugar and Bacon Wrapped Greenbeans: I’ve had a lot of requests for this recipe.  It is so easy but looks impressive.  A good alternative to the “green bean casserole.”  A favorite of kids and adults alike.

Roasted Brussel Sprouts: You can get brussel sprouts like above on the stalk at Trader Joe’s.  So beautiful!  I love to use the Trader Joe’s Garlic Olive Oil for extra flavor.

Savory Thyme Sweet Potatoes with Balsamic Reduction: This Sweet Potato recipe is from Andrea Immer’s cookbook Everyday Dining with Wine.  This is such a simple and tasty recipe.  This is how I got my girls to eat sweet potatoes and now they love them several ways.

Alyne’s Angel Rolls: Alyne was my great-grandmother. She was a great cook. I spent many hours in her kitchen as a child watching her cook, washing her MANY sets of interesting salt and pepper shakers for fun and drinking “coffee” with her friends. Her rolls are our family tradition. My mom is great at them. I “help.” You can save time on a holiday and let them rise the second time in the refrigerator overnight.

Pumpkin Apple Crisp with Salted Caramel Sauce: This is a great alternative for those who don’t like pumpkin pie!

Coconut Macaroon Hot Fruit Compote: We love this warm sweet fruit dish. It has become a holiday tradition to make it!

Sea Salt Caramel Pumpkin Bundt Cake: This Bundt Cake is gluten free, of course, and would be perfect for Thanksgiving brunch or as a dessert.  As holiday gift or as just an afternoon treat….The perfect mix of sweet with just a touch of saltiness.

Gluten Free Pie Crust: If you have gluten-free people attending your Thanksgiving, I highly recommend my Gluten Free Pie Crust Recipe here. It will keep in your refrigerator for 2-3 weeks wrapped tightly in plastic. You might think about making a few more and freezing them for Christmas. Cup4Cup Flour is a great all-purpose gluten free flour.  I use it to make all of my pie crustscakesrolls and cookies. But, if you don’t want to make your Gluten Free Pie Crust Mix completely from scratch this mix from Williams-Sonoma is wonderful.

Thanksgiving Traditions

One of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions is setting the table. Whether you are having a formal meal or serving buffet style like we do, there is something special about sitting down at a beautiful table.
