8 Expert Recipes for an Outstanding Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is the day to express your love and gratitude for the folks around you, but more importantly, it&rsquos also the time to flex your culinary muscles and wow your dinner guests. We suggest keeping it classic for the turkey centerpiece (James Beard&rsquos version is practically foolproof), and getting adventurous with the sides (which are really the best part, anyway). Here are eight recipes&mdashcourtesy of our talented friends from across the culinary universe&mdashthat are sure to make you this year&rsquos holiday hero.

Appetizers

Vegan Callaloo Dip
Our friend, Chefs Boot Camp alum, and Waste Not contributor Kwame Williams crafts a decadent dip of hearty callaloo greens without a drop of milk or butter. Cook this up and free your vegan guests from the days of sad, naked crudité.

No holiday appetizer spread is complete without crowd-pleasing deviled eggs. This twist on the classic from Chefs Boot Camp alum Janine Booth and her co-chef Jeff McInnis pickles the eggs in a beet-infused brine for a vibrant pink hue and adds some fried sweet potato chips for a bit of salty crunch.

Turkey

James Beard&rsquos Roast Turkey
While the apps, sides, and desserts allow for plenty of funky experimentation, this holiday centerpiece is tradition&rsquos time to shine. We stick to our namesake&rsquos tried-and-true method for an exquisitely juicy and perfectly seasoned bird every time.

Sides

Oyster Dressing
This shellfish-savvy starch from Chefs Boot Camp alum Jim Smith throws an Alabama twist on the traditional stuffing (or dressing, we won&rsquot pick a side). The state&rsquos famous Conecuh smoked sausage and briny whole oysters bring a savory complexity to everyone&rsquos favorite Thanksgiving accoutrement.

Pan-Griddled Sweet Potatoes with Miso&ndashGinger Dressing (pictured above)
Blend some Asian-inspired flavors into your holiday feast with this recipe from prolific cookbook author and multiple Beard Award winner Deborah Madison. The bracing char on the sweet tubers and the brightness of the incredibly versatile miso&ndashginger sauce will perfectly balance a menu of rich, traditional Thanksgiving fare.

Chefs Boot Camp alum and Full Use Kitchen instructor Jennifer Hill Booker pumps up a soul food mainstay with a generous portion of extra-sharp cheddar and a handful of spicy diced pimentos.

Desserts

Chocolate Chess Pie
When this decadent delight from Beard Award nominees Marilynn and Sheila Brass finally hits the table, your supposedly stuffed guests are sure to find the room and the willpower to take it on.

Coconut&ndashPecan Cake (pictured above)
This craveable confection comes courtesy of our 2018 Outstanding Pastry Chef winner Dolester Miles of Highlands Bar & Grill, who has wowed diners with her signature treats at the iconic restaurant for over 30 years. Whip it up for a showstopping finale to your Thanksgiving feast.
