70 of the Best Thanksgiving Recipes to Make This Year

Source: Isabel Eats

I’m in charge of my family’s Thanksgiving menu each year, which, admittedly, isn’t that difficult of a task, given that our typical menu varies little from year to year (they like traditions!). This year, however, I’m really going to try branching out. Don’t get me wrong—I love the classic recipes I’ve relied on for so long, but why not try adding a little pizazz to the traditional Thanksgiving dishes to mix things up? With recipes this good, they’ll might even become new traditions to keep alive. 

If you’re also looking for a little extra inspiration this year—maybe you’re hosting for the first time, maybe you’re planning on dinner for one, or maybe you’re like me and just looking for change—look no further than these 70 (yes, 70!) recipes that would go beautifully on your table this year, no matter what else is on it.
