Thanksgiving Menu Planner

Welcome to the Simply Recipes Thanksgiving Menu Planner! We’re here to help you think through your entire menu, from the turkey to the pie and everything in between.

Choose one of our curated menus below — Traditional, Vegetarian, or Make-Ahead — or skim through the entire list and create your own customized menu. All your selections will be collected at the bottom of the page for you to review and make any adjustments. When you’re done, email the recipes to yourself, or share them with your friends and family!

From our table to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!
