18 Mouthwatering Thanksgiving Dinners From Our Favorite TV Shows

Watch: Best "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" Holiday Moments

Well these are not your typical TV dinners

While our favorite Thanksgiving episodes range from How I Met Your Mother to Master of None, not every show features what Thanksgiving is really all about: the food. Yes, this year we're most thankful for the delicious-looking vegetables, gravies, cranberry sauces and of course, pies. It's always all about the pies, obviously. 

Who else but Bob (H. Jon Benjamin) from Bob's Burgers spends weeks finding the perfect turkey to stuff and serve on Thanksgiving? And what other family besides the Waldorfs in Gossip Girl would have white-glove servers during a family holiday? 

We always get our hearts stuffed by watching the Pearsons re-connect over their favorite meal on This Is Us, with the next generation vying to wear the coveted Pilgrim Jack hat. But, we're equally as full watching Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) get invited to four Thanksgivings and pretend to be hungry at all of them.

Even The Sopranos did Thanksgiving in its own way: "He Is Risen" mostly features the angst around hosting Thanksgiving (and, you know, being a mob boss) while still showing off the seemingly perfect meal Carmella (Edie Falco) prepared.

And The Mindy Project served up not only drama but also plenty of pecan pie when a love triangle goes awry. Pass the gravy? 

This Thanksgiving, we're leading with our bellies. Get ready to feast your eyes on these yummy on-screen Thanksgiving dinners for some menu inspiration, and dig in! 

NBCThis Is Us

This Is Us always outdoes itself when it comes to Thanksgiving episodes, and while not all of them seem delicious (sorry Pilgrim Rick, but hot dogs just don't do it for us), each holiday meal is sure to come with a warm side of heartfelt emotions. The most scrumptious feast, though, no doubt goes to season three's "Six Thanksgivings" episode, in which we get not one but six Thanksgiving dinners with the whole spread. 

Fox NetworkThat 70's Show

The 70's may have had some weird food (see: Watergate salad?!) but That 70's Show kept the Thanksgiving menu traditional in season one with a delicious-looking turkey and all the trimmings. 

FOXBob's Burgers

A ding, a ding, what's that sound? It's the gravy boat, comin' around! Bob (H. Jon Benjamin) is known for his adventurous menu planning, especially on Thanksgiving. But the delectable meal Bob prepared as a ruse for his landlord Mr. Fischoeder (Kevin Kline) to woo back an ex-lover during "An Indecent Thanksgiving Proposal" looked especially scrumptious with a specially-seasoned, free-range turkey from an elite farm.
