Traditional Turkey Dinner: Menu and Recipes

For most families, Thanksgiving is one of the most anticipated holidays of the year. At no other time are food and family the main focus of the day. We think you’ll agree the recipes included here will be ones your guests will both savor and enjoy.

Such a special occasion as Thanksgiving calls for a show-stopping entrée like Fruit-Glazed Turkey. An apple-raisin stuffing is tucked inside the tender bird, which is basted with a fruity spiced glaze as it bakes.

Round out the meal with a selection of sides such as Blue Cheese Romaine Salad, Squash Supreme, Herbed Cheddar Crescents and, of course, your family’s favorite mashed potatoes.
