As we mark the days until Thanksgiving, we can’t help but be thankful for the one and only Ina Garten for providing us with loads of inspiration to make our feast one to remember.
Our selection of Ina Garten Thanksgiving recipes is guaranteed to make your Turkey Day absolutely terrific. We mean, clearly The Barefoot Contessa knows her way around a turkey. In fact, Turkey Day is the one holiday where she insists on making most of the food herself. That means she has you covered for the whole day with make-ahead appetizers, side dishes (include stuffing, potatoes and salads) and desserts.
And while you might not think you can cook like this celebrity chef, Ina has shared with us in the past that for Thanksgiving, it’s all about keeping things simple and easy. Two rules of thumb? “Never, ever test a new recipe on guests for any reason. This is particularly true on Thanksgiving, when there’s so much to do,” and “Skip complicated appetizers; just serve nuts, good olives, or figs and prosciutto with wine or Champagne,” she said.
So whether you’re throwing a Friendsgiving, entertaining just a few family members or are hosting a large crowd, you can’t go wrong with any of these Thanksgiving recipes from Ina Garten.
