Courtesy of @greatfoodlifestyle, these maple-roasted chickpeas are kind of healthy, but don’t let that ruin it for you. It’s still maple, it’s still roasted, it’s still delicious. Recipe here.

2. The Most Epic Cheese Board

Because nothing bad can come from the Instagram handle @artofcheese.

3. Cheesy Pull-Apart Bread

It’s cheese, it’s bread, it’s sharable. And you can make it at home courtesy of @thekitchn.

A photo posted by Brandon / Kitchen Konfidence (@brandiego) on Oct 10, 2014 at 2:05pm PDT

Your favorite breakfast item taken to a new level, this avocado toast is no longer basic thanks to @brandiego. Smash some avocados now

5. Miso Deviled Eggs

A photo posted by Brandon / Kitchen Konfidence (@brandiego) on Nov 11, 2014 at 3:41pm PST

@brandiego strikes again with an Asian spin on that universal appetizer, deviled eggs. Pass it around your Thanksgiving.

Soups & Sides

Gotta have side food to go with your main food.

6. Cheesy Jalapeño Cornbread

A photo posted by The Latin Kitchen (@thelatinkitchen) on Nov 11, 2014 at 11:03am PST

There it is again: that magic combo of cheese and bread. This time, @latinkitchen adds some Latin flavor to it with jalapeño and cotija cheese. Make it now.

7. Autumn Soup with Pumpkin, Red Lentils and Ginger

A photo posted by mzpoetic (@mzpoetic) on Oct 10, 2014 at 6:10am PDT

Soup is great because its liquid so doesn’t take up as much room in the stomach, letting you eat even more. At least, that’s the scientific explanation. Thanks to @mzpoetic for the inspiration.

8. Lobster & Bacon Stuffing

A photo posted by Jones Dairy Farm (@jonesdairyfarm) on Nov 11, 2014 at 2:04pm PST

Thanks to @jonesdairyfarm, the pinnacle of indulgence has been reached: lobster and bacon (and butter). Your arteries may be saying no, no but your stomach is saying let’s go. YOLO.

9. Bourbon Sweet Potato and Pecan Casserole

A photo posted by Tieghan (@halfbakedharvest) on Nov 11, 2014 at 3:21pm PST

@halfbakedharvest has introduced a whole new world with liquor, sweet potatoes, glazed pecans and bacon. Sorry, vegetarians, but bacon makes everything better including ye olde sweet potato casserole. Recipe here.

10. Roasted Shiitake Mushroom & Asian Pear Salad

A photo posted by Laura Davidson (@blogoverthyme) on Sep 9, 2014 at 1:36pm PDT

A photo posted by Danielle Omar MS, RD (@danielleomar) on Nov 11, 2014 at 1:57pm PST

The best fruit + the best veggies stacked into one amazing stuffing recipe. @danielleomar even included some the super food of the year, quinoa, and those anti-oxidant rich blueberries so you can say you had a healthy Thanksgiving meal. Get wild over these blueberries.

13. Twice-Baked Sweet Potato with Marshmallow

A photo posted by Emily Caruso (@emsjellytoast) on Nov 11, 2014 at 4:28pm PST

Thanksgiving motto: sweet potato everything. @emsjellytoast gets it.

Main Course

Life beyond the turkey.

14. Jamie Oliver’s Nut Roast

A photo posted by Jamie Oliver (@jamieoliver) on Oct 10, 2014 at 1:32am PDT

Swoon-worthy chef Jamie Oliver (@jamieoliver) brings us an untraditional main course that’s meatloaf’s meatless cousin. Help out the vegetarians who are usually isolated to the salad and cheese plate and add this to the Thanksgiving table.

15. Korean Style Spicy Pork Belly

A photo posted by spoonforkbacon (@spoonforkbacon) on Sep 9, 2014 at 3:25pm PDT

It’s still not turkey, but @spoonforkbacon makes that all okay by giving us decadent pork belly instead. It’s like spicy and sweet, thick bacon at your table. Dreams can come true.

18. Caramelized Onion Tart

19. Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Turkey

A photo posted by Food Network (@foodnetwork) on Nov 11, 2014 at 3:13pm PST

Finally, the turkey. But brought to you by @foodnetwork with the obvious upgrade of bacon (oh and a pear hash stuffing). Bacon forever.


Bring me my pie.

20. Molten Chocolate Pumpkin Streusel Bread

A photo posted by Tieghan (@halfbakedharvest) on Oct 10, 2014 at 3:11pm PDT

21. Peanut Butter Oreo S’mores

A photo posted by Dana Shultz (@minimalistbaker) on Aug 8, 2014 at 8:46am PDT

A photo posted by Averie Sunshine (@averiesunshine) on Oct 10, 2014 at 2:48pm PDT

@averiesunshine takes a tip from Trader Joe’s to re-create their legendary cowboy bark, and yup it’s legendary for all the right reasons: chocolate, Oreos, pretzels, nuts, toffee, ermygerd it’s all the cravings at once. Break off some of that bark.
