10 Make-Ahead Thanksgiving Recipes

Thanksgiving has a reputation for being the most delicious holiday around, but it can also be the most stressful if you're in charge of the meal. From mashing the potatoes to stirring the cranberry sauce and whisking the gravy, there can be little time to sit down and enjoy the day with your friends and family (and savor the feast!). Instead of the stress this year, we've rounded up 10 recipes from an earthy stuffing to a creamy mash that can be made ahead of time and simply reheated on The Big Day. All you have to do is handle the turkey.
