This No-Brainer Guide is planned for about 8–10 servings, except for the turkey itself, which should feed about 12 or more (we figured you wanted more turkey leftovers than anything else). Adjust proportions as needed for your own Thanksgiving meal.

Note: All ingredients needed are listed here. Check your pantry to see if you already have some of these ingredients at home before shopping.
