Good news, everyone. We’re rapidly approaching the best holiday of the calendar year. Thanksgiving is a day to get together with your fave humans, take a moment to appreciate all the wonderful things you have, and then stuff yourself silly until your pants bust, you begin experiencing “the meat sweats,” and then you drift into a drool-filled nap while sitting up straight in a chair that no longer fits you. It’s the best. Add a few cheesy Thanksgiving recipes, and it's even better.
Because if there's any way to make this amazing day even more glorious than it already is, it's cheese. All the cheese. Cheese is such a wonderful, edible creation because it can be added to virtually any dish without making said dish taste weird. In fact, cheese always brings a recipe to the top of its taste-game. And here’s how you can have an entire Thanksgiving feast where every dish (even the desserts) include cheese.

Brussels Sprouts Gratin
If you hated Brussels sprouts as a kid, give these a chance, because they’re about to turn your world upside down. The perfect combination of sweet and savory, this side by Taste and Tell is also easy to prepare. So maybe make extra, because your guests will be gobbling this up.

The Tre-Tres: Classic Roasted Turkey with Cheesy Bread Stuffing
This is a family recipe passed down from generation to all of us on the Interweb a la Simply Delicious. It’s the main event of the feast, so the prep and cook time will occupy a lot of your day. Plan ahead, and if you can make any of the other dishes the night before, it’d be wise to do so to keep your stress at a normal party-host level.

No-Bake Nutella Cheesecakes
This spectacular gem is a no-bake masterpiece that’ll probably have your feast-eaters drooling well into the Christmas season. It doesn’t get any better than Nutella. It just doesn’t.
