Sides for Thanksgiving
No one wants to bring sides for Thanksgiving that fall flat! Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I am SO excited! Unless you’re hosting, you probably aren’t signing up to bring a turkey or maybe a ham – but I’m sure you’re responsible for a bringing a yummy side! If we are being honest, the sides are my very favorite part! The amazing assortment of side dishes is what separates Thanksgiving from any other turkey dinner.

- The BEST Cheese Ball
- Sweet Potato Casserole
- Cornbread Stuffing
- Brown Sugar Carrots

- Cranberry Sauce
- Loaded Bacon Green Beans
- Strawberry Pretzel Jello Salad
- Roasted Maple Brussel Sprouts, Bacon and Squash
A sides for Thanksgiving staple! If you’re going to have one side, it has to be mashed potatoes, right? This recipe is so simple and will keep you from getting sticky or glue-like mashed potatoes.
My family is obsessed with the crunchy onions on this green bean casserole. When it comes to this recipe, I feel like everyone makes it just a bit different! I have tried them all and this one takes the cake as our family’s favorite.
This is where I get sentimental because this is actually my mom’s recipe! I make these almost every single week. It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without them!
One of my personal must-haves! I have this out as my guests arrive so they have something to munch on while I get the table set.
This is my Thanksgiving secret recipe because everyone is always SO impressed! The truth is, this is the easiest recipe of the entire day!! This cheese ball is so yummy and simple but really elevates the entire meal.
This casserole is sweet and sugary – the perfect compliment to the turkey and creamy mashed potatoes! If you had to pick, sweet potatoes or mashed potatoes, which would your family choose?
A variation to Thanksgiving staple! The cornbread stuffing is what I’m often remembered for! If I am going to a friendsgiving, this is what I bring because I know no one else will bring anything like it! It really is so tasty.
We have to have a veggie right?! My kids LOVE these carrots! SO
Creamed corn is always on our Thanksgiving menu! It really has such a nice, mild creamy flavor that I think breaks up some of the other salty and sweet recipes.
A dessert? A side? I think it’s both! These are the traditional knotted rolls with an orange glaze that will have you coming back for “just one more bite!”
You didn’t think I forgot this classic, did you? I love this variation of cranberry sauce! Don’t worry, I always have a can on hand as well just to make sure everyone has their favorite!
The bacon really makes this recipe – don’t skip them! Even your kids who don’t like veggies will have a bite of this.
Another recipe that treads the line of dessert and a side – I’ll take it!
An ideal Fall recipe! This is full of warm spices that make me feel in the season. If you’re making the green beans, you’ll have two bacon side dishes!
