Starting off our list is this recipe for easy roasted turkey. There are many turkey recipes on the internet that claim to be the simplest, and we found one that we think fits the bill just right. With eight ingredients and seven well laid out steps, there’s nothing overly complicated about this recipe from Real Simple.

This recipe for creamy mashed potatoes is complete in two steps (the third and final step is simply moving the mashed potatoes). Enjoy eating these with quick gravy, which can be finished in three steps.

Stuffing is a Thanksgiving dinner staple, and this herb stuffing recipe is one for the books! As with the recipes for mashed potatoes and gravy, this recipe can be done in less than four steps. Just follow the directions and you’ll have delicious homemade stuffing in no time.

Of course, Thanksgiving dinner isn’t complete without one of the most important dishes: pie. We have two pie recipes to share with you. They’re so simple, you’ll probably end up making them both!

The first pie recipe we have for you is sweet potato pie. For this, you’ll need the following ingredients: unsalted butter, brown sugar, one large egg, fresh orange juice, honey, one large sweet potato, evaporated milk, vanilla extract, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a 9-inch pie crust.

The second pie recipe we have for you is cranberry-pear pie. Yes, this recipe has eight steps, but they’re easy to follow. In response to this recipe, one person said, “A wonderful recipe. Slightly tart, and a nice mix of flavors. I recommend using a mid-ripe, crisp pear, like a [D’Anjou], otherwise the pears will get too soft during baking.”
