A morning-friendly alternative to the leftovers sandwich. Enter the Thanksbenedict.
I like sweet-tart jams, and this marmalade is one of the best I've tried. Tart orange accepts a sweet hug from bright-red pomegranate, and the whole thing is given a nice, boozy kiss from the addition of a touch of tequila.
Leftover turkey meat is the perfect foundation for a rich white bean chili made with three types of peppers.
This cranberry-studded popcorn is a light enough snack to munch on without being too filling; but its combination of sweet and salty, tangy and boozy is enough to satisfy just until the Thanksgiving feast really starts.
Crisp-shelled, marshmallow-chewy meringues are layered with lightly sweetened butter into a cloudy white cake that's an unexpected surprise.
The idea of shoving lovely, tender shrimp into a little pot may seem a bit backwards to some, but once you've tasted the gently seasoned butter and lovely tender shrimp you'll understand why this classic British dish is coming back into style.
Shepherd's pie is a natural fit for Thanksgiving ingredients like squash and root vegetables. They get roasted to intensify their flavor, combined with mushrooms for some added flavor and heft, stirred into a rich, creamy, comforting sauce, and topped with smooth mashed potatoes, which get brown and crisp when the dish goes back into a hot oven. The end result is decadent enough to satisfy a holiday-sized appetite, and might even turn the heads of a few of your meat-eating friends and relatives.
A satisfying thick, hearty, and meaty gravy that only requires sausage, flour, milk, and a watchful eye to make right every time.
In a nod to the favorite childhood snack, flaky dough is rolled up, pinwheel style, around strawberry jam and peanut butter chips.

The term "cake" is used loosely here, but we doubt you'll mind. Part elegant holiday centerpiece, part little-kid fantasy, this towering cake of cream and cookies is as delicious as it is stunning.
The old-school Long Island Iced Tea receives an upgrade with homemade cola syrup, adapted from Brooklyn Farmacy & Soda, but punched up with a little extra spice.

If Thanksgiving can be recreated completely in pie form, can't the holiday's many familiar flavors be translated into a satisfying salad?

This is a streamlined version of the famous Thai steamed pumpkin custard -- you know, the kind where you steam a whole pumpkin along with the custard filling, the kind that isn't as easy to make as many recipes want you to think (I'll talk more about this in due time). You get pretty much the same taste out of it without nearly as much fuss. This appeals to a lazy person like me who's always looking for a faster, easier way to do everything.
Crusty rolls stuffed with shallot and sage-scented spaghetti squash and melted cheddar cheese.
This pumpkin-y cornbread is a nice alternative to regular cornbread for fall breakfasts and Thanksgiving meals.
