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. 

Perfect Classic Glazed Meatloaf

Classic doesn’t have to mean boring. Perfect meatloaf should be tender, juicy and packed with savory flavor. Extra points if it’s brushed with a sweet/tart glaze. This is a dish that’s equally adept at making your kids jump for joy as your (adult) dinner guests.

Best Blondies Ever (with Brown Butter, Bourbon & Butterscotch)

Cork and Knife

Our new cookbook is out now — and its focus is one of our favorite ingredients: booze! We show you how to use the cooking properties of beer, wine, bourbon and more to make your dishes pop!

Brown Butter Bourbon Blondies

No longer the boring cousin of the brownie, these blondies are packed with tons of flavor from brown butter, toasted hazelnuts, chocolate chunks, butterscotch chips and a healthy splash of bourbon.

I was that weird kid who, when offered the choice of a brownie or a blondie, would always choose the blondie. Something about that cookie bar, packed with chocolate chips and toasty nuts, was just more interesting to me than straight chocolate (though I wouldn’t toss a good, fudgy brownie out of bed either. I’m not a monster).

Unfortunately, more often than not, blondies can be underwhelming. They’re either dry and crumbly or doughy and flavorless — so we set out to develop a foolproof recipe. We think the perfect blondie should have a tender, moist crumb. Then it’s filled with deep caramel flavor from brown butter, vanilla and (optional, but delicious) bourbon. Finally, we pack in our favorite mix-ins: chocolate chunks, butterscotch chips and toasted hazelnuts.
