Rachael Ray Thanksgiving Recipes

Looking for Rachael Ray's Thanksgiving recipes? Well, lucky for you I like to find those recipes and put them all in one convenient little spot. Below you'll find my list from last year, updated to include this year's additions, which mostly come from Rachael's talk show.

I have to give a personal plug to a couple recipes that we now make every year. For the turkey, we are huge fans of the recipe from last year's Thanksgiving issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray: Maple-Glazed Roast Turkey with Apple Cider Gravy (pictured at left, from Every Day with Rachael Ray).
For the sides, we always make Apple and Onion Stuffin' Muffins and Southern Green Beans. We still haven't found the perfect recipe for Sweet Potatoes or Mashed Potatoes, so I'm always trying new ones for those.
I'm not cooking this year (sob!), but I have been tasked with bringing a dessert item to a family dinner. Since I know others are bringing pie and my baking skills are about as good as Rachael Ray's (who admits she's not a baker), I'm thinking of trying to make Pumpkin Whoopie Pies for the novelty factor and because they look outstanding. I'll let you know how it goes. Onto the recipes!


  1. I made her pumpkin soup (from Thankgiving in 60, the first one) a couple of years ago and I have to say that while it was probably a great pumpkin soup recipe (and relatively easy), I discovered something - I do NOT like pumpkin soup! We can usually make it through a meal, even if we won't be reusing it (or keeping leftovers), but not this one! In my opinion, pumpkin was not made for being soup! Now pumpkin ice cream or muffins or cake or cheesecake...that's good food!

  2. I made that turkey last year as well and plan to do it again this year! mm, I can't wait!

  3. My favorite Thanksgiving recipe isn't a food but a drink: Festive Cranberry Martinis

    Surely that's what the pilgrims had in mind...
