9 Complete Thanksgiving Menus

More than any other holiday, Thanksgiving is a day built on culinary ritual. Turkey, cranberry sauce, potatoes, and pies might be non-negotiable—but a little variation never hurts, so we’ve come up with 9 complete menus: A comforting Southern spread is ideal for feeding a hungry crowd, while a rustic California menu is perfect for a casually refined evening. Our Mexican-inspired feast will bring some spice to your table, and our vegetarian menu leaves no one missing the meat (you can even make it vegan with our suggested adaptations). And if there will be just two at the table this year, we’ve got the perfectly proportioned meal for you. Cook all the recipes from one menu, or mix and match!
