The ‘Dinner SOS’ Live Call-In Thanksgiving Extravaganza

Bon Appétit

ON THIS WEEK’S episodes of Dinner SOS, food director and host Chris Morocco is joined by contributing editor Maggie Hoffman, food editor Jesse Szewczyk, and editorial operations manager Kate Kassin to chat live with callers seeking advice for all their Thanksgiving cooking conundrums.

They discuss the best snacks to serve to keep guests out of the kitchen before the big meal (Maggie suggests Jesse’s Shrimp Cocktail and Chris proposes these Nori-Sesame Hurricane Chips). Our team says when in doubt go with bread, like these Buttery Milk Buns and Make-Ahead Dinner Rolls.

Jesse shares two vegetarian mains that hold their own against the Big Bird: Creamy Mushroom Lasagna and Cheesy Cabbage Gratin, along with what to do with extra pie dough in the freezer (top a savory pot pie with it or make pandowdy!). And Chris and Kate debate the best poultry recipes that aren’t turkey; Kate suggests Pomegranate-and-Honey-Glazed Duck or Chile-Vinegar Marinated Cornish Hens and Chris offers up his Double-Garlic Roast Chicken.

And if you want to be the most popular person at your Thanksgiving gathering, Maggie recommends bringing an infinity boulevardier, a batched version of the cocktail that is equal parts Campari, sweet vermouth, and whatever whiskey (don’t be afraid to mix and match if you just have the dredges of a few bottles, Maggie notes) you have on hand.

Listen now to hear more tips and recipe suggestions—easy prep-ahead sides, dairy-free desserts, kosher-friendly menus, and out-of-the-box dishes so good they’ll win the family competition—from the team. And head to the Thanksgiving archives on Bon Appétit and Epicurious for more recipe recommendations. Happy Thanksgiving!
