*These* Are Ina Garten's Most Mouthwatering Thanksgiving Recipes for Turkey Day

Calling all Ina Garten fans! You’ve seen Ina-themed bachelorette parties (can we snag an invite?). Now how about a Barefoot Contessa-themed Thanksgiving meal?

In a perfect world, we’d all be invited to break bread with the legend herself and a few of her very best friends (can you imagine asking Jeffrey or Taylor Swift to please pass the green beans?). But since you might not make the guest list this year, the next best thing is to copy the best Ina Garten Thanksgiving recipes for your family’s very own festive feast.

Here, the beloved Barefoot Contessa shares with Good Housekeeping her most coveted Thanksgiving recipes (did you know it’s the only holiday she insists making all the food herself?) for a mouth-watering meal you’ll always remember. With 15 plus recipes, she has you covered for the whole Turkey-Day menu: from starters and sides like soup and mashed potatoes, to delicious desserts like pumpkin pie or pecan pie, and — of course — the star of the show: her insanely tasty, moist and foolproof roasted turkey.

Take inspiration from Ina by incorporating just one or two of her standbys into your family’s meal (we’re looking at you, bacon Brussels sprouts!). Or, go ahead and steal the entire Thanksgiving feast (no judgement here!). And, because it’s Ina, you know she’s also got some great hosting tips and sanity-saving tricks too, to make the whole meal go smoothly. So, if we can’t join the Contessa, we can at least eat like her. Thanks, Ina!
