Chocolate Frangelico Mousse — a Christmas Peek from Cork and Knife

Thanksgiving Recipes Round-Up 2019

Cooking for a big holiday is hard enough without having to search for and keep track of a million dishes. So here are our favorite Thanksgiving recipes.

Stuffing with Apples, Sausage and Fennel

Our Stuffing with Apples, Sausage and Fennel is so good, we make it for Thanksgiving every year. Like a savory bread pudding, it’s moist and flavorful in the middle, with crispy brown sides and top. The flavor combination of rich breakfast sausages, sweet apples and fennel make this the Thanksgiving side dish we just can’t do without.

Lemon-Garlic Chicken and Tomato Skewers with Basil Chimichurri

Grilled chicken doesn’t always need a long marinade to be full of flavor. These spend just a few minutes in a lemony-garlicky mix before they’re grilled to charred perfection.
