What's a Traditional Thanksgiving Dinner?
The history of the American Thanksgiving tells us that turkey and venison were likely two of the main features at the first feast. Today, a classic Thanksgiving dinner still features roasted turkey, plus a whole host of delectable sides—sourdough bread stuffing, silky gravy, buttery mashed potatoes, crispy green bean casserole, and more. This traditional holiday menu includes all of those things, plus other favorites, including our best pumpkin pie and tart fresh cranberry sauce.
