I'm of the mindset that no dinner, let alone holiday dinner, is complete without bread. Homemade bread is that final finishing touch every dinner needs.

While you're refreshing your skills on cooking a turkey or sorting through how to cook prime rib for the first time, you can't forget the bread!

Whether quick bread, rollsbiscuits or a loaf of crusty homemade sourdough bread, we've got you covered with all the tasty bread recipes you need!

1. Vanilla Pumpkin Skillet Cornbread Recipe

Our popular vanilla pumpkin skillet cornbread recipe has a beautiful crunch and delicious flavor making it clear why it's a must have for your Thanksgiving table. This cornbread falls right smack in the middle of sweet and savory. It could easily accompany your favorite chili or it could be drizzled in maple syrup as part of your breakfast, but don't miss out on it alongside turkey and all the fixings.

2. Croque Monsieur Rolls Recipe

These beloved Croque Monsieur rolls are full of ham and cheese goodness, wrapped in a tender homemade dough that is totally worth the effort! Trust me when I say, these rolls are actually all about the dough, a dough that yields super tender bread that falls somewhere between the inside of a croissant and a beautiful loaf of brioche. They're perfect for brunch or dinner anytime of year.

3. Lemon Cranberry Bread Recipe

I'm personally a big fan of serving a sweet quick bread recipe along with Thanksgiving dinner, especially one like this lemon cranberry bread recipe. This lemon cranberry bread is quick and easy to make, filled with tart cranberries in a sweet, lemon flavored bread smothered in a perfect lemon glaze. The combination of tart and sweet is perfect alongside savory turkey and gravy.

4. Poppy Seed Roll Recipe

If a traditional hard roll is your idea of the perfect dinner roll, check out our poppy seed roll recipe! When I talk about hard rolls, I'm not talking about rolls with a thick crust that you really sink your teeth into and then rip away a huge crusty chunk. Don't get me wrong, those sound fantastic to me, but what I'm talking about are rolls with a thin, crispy crust and a soft, airy interior. That's exactly what you'll get when you bake these rolls.

5. Zucchini Bread with Five Spice Recipe

Zucchini bread is perfect any time of year in my book, but this vegan zucchini bread made with Chinese 5 Spice is next level goodness. This spicy sweet quick bread is packed with ginger, cardamom, pineapple, zucchini and 5 Spice, making it a unique addition to your Thanksgiving menu. The 5 Spice is a blend of cinnamon, cloves, star anise, fennel and peppercorns, packing a cozy, warm flavor profile perfect for fall.

6. Herb Skillet Bread Recipe

I love a skillet bread recipe so much! They are so simple to make and bake with such incredible flavor. This herb skillet bread is a perfect example of just such a bread recipe. It has a beautiful mix of herbs, garlic, and parmesan cheese, and it's so easy! If you want a beginner recipe, this herb skillet bread is perfect for you. It has shorter rise times and doesn’t require any special skills or knowledge of baking with yeast.

7. Nutella-Swirled Banana Bread Recipe

Have I mentioned my love for a good sweet bread at the Thanksgiving table? It's like dessert before dessert - something sweet to break up all the heavy, savory flavors! Our Nutella swirled banana bread recipe is one worth considering. Moist banana bread with generous swirls of Nutella, this is the true bread of champions. Slice into it early and pair it with a cup of coffee on Thanksgiving morning and you won't be disappointed.
