If you’re welcoming guests to your home this year, the Barefoot Contessa has you covered with these classic Thanksgivings recipes...

Update:
Thanksgiving favourites from Ina Garten
Eric Pancer

As we approach holiday season people tend to fall back on the same time-honoured favourites. With just two days to go until Thanksgiving, for many home chefs that means returning to the recipes of Ina Garten, also known as the Barefoot Contessa.

Her traditional-style recipes bring modern techniques and handy shortcuts to well-known Thanksgiving recipes. In a recent interview with the New York Times, Garten stressed that “store-bought is fine.”

“I think just for Thanksgiving, all bets are off,” she said. “Whatever you need to do to get Thanksgiving dinner on the table is OK.”

Whether you want to keep things classic or are looking to mix up the Thanksgiving offering, the Barefoot Contessa has you covered. Here’s some of her top recipes for a Thanksgiving to remember…

Thanksgiving Classics

Make-Ahead Roast Turkey – Save yourself the Thanksgiving headaches with this pre-prepared roast turkey and gravy recipe.

Twice-baked Sweet Potatoes – Fluffy sweet potatoes are the perfect accompaniment to that turkey gravy and this recipe will take some beating.

Mushroom & Leek Bread Pudding – Looking for an alternative to the ubiquitous stuffing? This bread pudding packs a savoury punch.

Ultimate Thanksgiving Sides

Green Beans Gremolata – Jazz up your festive greens with herbs, pine nuts and garlic in this simple ten-minute recipe.

Orange-Braised Carrots & Parsnips – Few things will get mouths watering around the table faster than these citrusy root vegetables.

Sausage-Stuffed Mushrooms – These decadent meaty mushrooms act as the perfect accompaniment to Thanksgiving stuffing, and can be prepared in advance for peace of mind.

Thanksgiving Desserts

Apple Crisp - The apple pie may be the more classic, but there are few desserts as satisfying as this zesty apple crisp. Serve warm with ice cream or cream for the perfect finale.

Pumpkin Flan with Maple Caramel – Pumpkins are pretty much ubiquitous at this time of year, but why not mix things up with this french-inspired autumnal flan?
