There Are so Many Fun Thanksgiving Specials Airing on Food Network This Month

Thanksgiving is full of seasonal television specials and pumpkin-themed recipes. But, no one does the Turkey-holiday like Food Network.

The home to Ree Drummond's show, The Pioneer Woman, is the perfect place to start for planning out your Thanksgiving meal. After all, the network is literally dedicated to food, so it just makes sense that they know a thing or two about Thanksgiving, a holiday based on family and... eating! Where else can you get fall recipes, holiday competition shows, and expert advice from our favorite Food Network chefs all in one place?

This year, Food Network’s 2022 Thanksgiving programming will help you prepare for your family feast with new episodes and specials airing all month long. Between Bobby Flay, Guy Fieri, and our very own Ree Drummond, this year's schedule is full of delicious delights we can't wait to get our hands on.

Here's all the info you need to know about Food Network's full Thanksgiving 2022 schedule, then keep watching for their Christmas schedule straight through the holidays.

Ree Drummond (AKA, The Pioneer Woman), is showing us how to do Thanksgiving on a time crunch. What should normally take days of preparation is cut tremendously short, in her new episode of "Fast Thanksgiving Favorites." Get ready for quick Thanksgiving sides, stuffing muffins, holiday desserts, and everything in between—there’s even a quick-cooking turkey recipe!

The following week, Ree is giving us all something to be thankful for: Thanksgiving leftovers! She'll show us how to transform day-after meals and desserts into a whole new dish with recipes like Thanksgiving breakfast sandwiches and turkey spaghetti. Oh, did we mention there will be a milkshake made with leftover pecan pie? Count us in!
