Roast Turkey with Herb Butter recipe (see picture above). And I brine my turkey each year per Martha's instructions--I'll have a tutorial for you next week. Of course, my apple pie recipe is from Martha as well.
If you are looking to change up your normal Thanksgiving day menu, take a look at Martha's 19 different options, complete with recipes. Or mix and match if you prefer. There's plenty of inspiration and ideas to make your Thanksgiving memorable, whether you are hosting or bringing a dish to someone else's house.
Finally, if you are tired of the standard mashed potatoes and gravy, I recommend baking this Potato Gratin. I made this a few weeks ago as a side dish, and it was delicious! I am always amazed when just a few simple ingredients come together to make something so perfect.
If you must have mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving, then give this recipe a try for a weeknight side dish. Everyone is going to love it.
Happy Thanksgiving season!
