So you dont have a degree from Le Cordon Bleu. Or a Michelin star. Or a 47,000 stove yes, they actually make a 47,000 stove. You can still cook Thanksgiving like a James Beard chef.

No, really, you can.

All you need is a little time, a lot of patience, and a menu that includes the best Thanksgiving dishes from the best celebrity chefs. These dishes also happen to be on the easy side of gourmet chef-ery. You can thank us later we only accept bribes that are pumpkin flavored.

Main Dish

Herb-Roasted Turkey Breast

Why bother with a whole turkey when youre just going to end up with two-thirds of it left over? Instead, order a whole turkey breast from your grocer. Its much more easy to manage the cooking, and it wont end up packed to go for your guests and overflowing you dogs bowl at the end of the night.

Chef Ina Gartens Herb-roasted turkey breast layers on the fresh rosemary, sage, and thyme for a tasty - and fragrant - main dish.

Side Dishes

Emeril Lagasses Spicy Sausage Dressing

When chef Emeril Lagasse spends years trying to "trying to replicate" his mothers dressing recipe and finally gives up and asks for it, you know it must be good. "It might be the best thing Ive ever eaten," he said. His version of stuffing uses Portuguese linguica or hot Italian sausage and milk-soaked bread. Sign us up.

Mix potatoes with browned butter and crme frache and you have "chef Michael Symons four-ingredient potatoes" that take the normal spud fare to a whole level of Thanksgiving yumminess.

Rachel Rays Brussel Sprouts with Bacon

As long as youre going to eat a meal packed with as many calories as youve had in the two weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, you might as well throw in some bacon. This Rachel Ray recipe also adds in a fall veggie: brussel sprouts. If you just crinkled your face up at the thought of eating brussel sprouts at all, let alone on Thanksgiving, trust us. Bacon makes ANTHING better. And it does amazing things to brussel sprouts.

Chef Robert Irvines Sweet Potato Bread Pudding

Save the marshmallows for roasting by the fire. This from chef Robert Irvine impresses in a whole new way. And, frankly, when the recommended toppings include caramel or bourbon sauce, were in.

Paula Deens Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake
