20 Best Turkey Recipes - Thanksgiving Turkey and More

When you hear the words ‘Thanksgiving menu,’ the first thing that probably comes to mind is turkey. A big, beautiful, glazed bird sitting front and center on your holiday table is practically required, after all. But did you know that turkey can be enjoyed throughout the year, too? The simple, crowd-pleasing Thanksgiving staple is just as delicious (and easy enough to make) for any Sunday dinner. That’s why we’ve rounded up a complete list of turkey recipes no matter what the occasion may be. Here, you’ll find cozy soups, burgers, and easy sandwiches—all made with turkey!

While some of these turkey recipes require a whole roasted bird, others are made with turkey breast, leftover turkey, or even ground turkey—so they’re perfect for weeknights! For instance, your family will love the turkey pot pie, the turkey tetrazzini, or the turkey taco lettuce wraps for a deliciously lighter take on regular ground beef tacos! Of course, no turkey round-up would be complete without a few variations on holiday roasts—ahead, you’ll find Ree Drummond’s citrus-brined turkey and her maple-rosemary turkey that’s perfect for a seasonal feast. The only thing left to do is read up on just how to season turkey so it comes out perfect every time.
