Easy Thanksgiving Recipes You’ll Love

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, what will your menu look like? For those who are looking for some easy recipes that are sure to impress, we have you covered.

Thanksgiving Dressing Made Easy

You will need:

  • ¾ cup of unsalted butter
  • 1 pound of day old white bread that is torn into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 ½ cups of chopped yellow onions
  • 1 ½ cup of sliced celery
  • ½ cup chopped parsley
  • 2 tbsp of fresh sage
  • 1 tbsp of fresh rosemary
  • 1 tbsp of thyme
  • 2 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of black pepper
  • 2 ½ cups of low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 large eggs


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Set aside the bread pieces in the air so that they are dried out by the time you are ready to use these. Cook the onions and celery in butter via the stove until they brown. Then add the bread that is laid out. Stir in the herbs, salt and pepper, then drizzle this mixture with 1 ¼ cups of the broth and let cool together.

Whisk the remaining broth and eggs into a bowl and add the bread mixture, folding it together until it is blended. Transfer this to the baking dish, cover with foil and bake for about 40 minutes. This can be made a day ahead and still taste great.
