Thanksgiving is right around the corner & I am high on comfort food planning. One day a year, we have a free pass to stop worrying about those love handles & to completely gorge ourselves on rich, home made, carb-loaded, gravy smothered fixin’s. There is no doubting that a juicy, butter-laded turkey is the star of our yearly feasts, but let’s not forget about those sides. Oh, the sides! I’m always on the lookout for a fun new recipe to try, but I try not to steer too far from my classics. I put together a list of ten Thanksgiving side dishes I think would be a fab addition to anyone’s table this year.
Our very own Amelia’s recipe for Pepperidge Farm Corn Cakes is a fun twist on your traditional stuffing. I’ll be trying this with my family this year for sure! We are gluttonous bread eaters & I know my family will love sinking their teeth into these corn cakes.
The Pioneer Woman is a goddess & I know this recipe for Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic & Cranberries would be a delicious twist on traditional sides.
Any excuse to throw bacon in your Thanksgiving dinner should be welcomed. And Half Baked Harvest’s recipe for Sweet & Savory Cheesy Bacon Wrapped Puff Pastry Twist looks absolutely divine.
This Creamy Corn Pudding with Crispy Onions & Herbs has me salivating.
Green Bean Casserole is a classic holiday dish. This version is made in the slow cooker.
Potatoes. No Thanksgiving is complete without them. This recipe for Caramelized Onion Mashed Potato Bake sounds scrumptious!
I wasn’t a fan of brussels sprouts until I tried them shredded. I think these Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Bacon & Caraway would convert any brussels haters. Besides, bacon.
Personally, I’m not a mushroom fan. But I may give these Butter & Wine Roasted Mushrooms a shot this year. They look delicious!
These Mini Sweet Potato Casseroles are a simple & creative idea for any Thanksgiving get together.
I love me some bread. I’ll definitely be making these Easy Garlic Knots this Thanksgiving.
What is one of your must-have side dishes this Thanksgiving? Is there on side that you look forward to every year?
