36 Yummy Pinterest Thanksgiving Recipes

Sharing is caring!

Thanksgiving is a little over a week away!  If you are like me, you have been searching the internet and Pinterest for some yummy Thanksgiving recipes to mix things up.  We all have the same exact thing year after year, but with the popularity of Pinterest, Thanksgiving recipes are more plentiful!  Here are my top picks!

Thanksgiving Side Dishes, Desserts, Main DIsh, and Leftovers

Pinterest Thanksgiving Recipes for Your Main Dish:

  1. Mayonnaise Roasted Turkey – This Turkey from She Wears Many Hats is a bit strange sounding, but I imagine it is REALLY yummy!  I have coated chicken in mayonnaise before and it really helps to keep the juices in.  You don’t taste mayo after it goes through the cooking process, just pure YUM!
  2. Bacon Wrapped Turkey – OH EM GEE!  Y’all, this is like the best sounding meal EVER! I mean seriously, everything tastes better with bacon. 🙂
  3. Slow Cooker Whole Fryer Chicken – Do you have Chicken at Thanksgiving? If so, try this slow cooker chicken – it stays juicy and keeps the oven free for the ham or Turkey!

Yummy Thanksgiving Side Dishes

Tons of unique side dish recipes perfect for Thanksgiving

  1. Pineapple Casserole
  2. Easy Butternut Squash Soup can be used as an appetizer or side dish and it is oh so pretty!
  3. Homemade Yeast Rolls – We always just buy a couple bags of the cheap rolls, but homemade bread always smells so good and you know what is in them.  I just might have to try my hand at these this year!
  4. Dairy-Free & Egg-Free Cornbread Dressing – have allergies?  This is the perfect stuffing!
