Nothing says Thanksgiving quite like roast turkey. While buying a whole turkey is usually affordable, the prep work can be time-consuming. This recipe uses boneless frozen turkey breast, which is generally pricier. However, we’ve included this recipe on the list because it calls for relatively few ingredients and minimal prep work. Plus, you cook it in an Instant Pot, freeing up valuable oven space. Bonus: You can make an easy gravy using the pan drippings.
Any Thanksgiving meal needs delicious sides, and we think this recipe fits the bill. We’ve included it on the list largely for its versatility. While you can use potatoes and carrots, you can also switch them out for sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, or other vegetables.
A green bean casserole is a classic way to add some green vegetables to the plate without skimping on richness. We’ve included this recipe because you can make it with just four ingredients. We also love that you can make the recipe in a slow cooker to free up your oven.
No Thanksgiving meal is complete without a sweet ending! We’ve included this pumpkin pie recipe because it’s about as easy as you can get while still doing some of the prep work yourself. It uses just five ingredients and comes together quickly.
