Thanksgiving Side Dishes: 35 Family-Favorite Recipes for Thanksgiving Sides
Call up the relatives 'cause we're going to help you throw the best Thanksgiving dinner you've ever had. Our latest free eCookbook, Thanksgiving Side Dishes: 35 Family-Favorite Recipes for Thanksgiving Sides, has every side dish recipe you can think of that'll make your holiday feast a spectacular event. From creamy mashed potatoes to fresh-from-the-oven rolls to healthy green beans and more, you'll "wow" everyone with your fabulous spread of dishes.
Thanksgiving is one of the most important food holidays of the year. Not only do you want the turkey to turn out just right, but for some, the side dishes are just as much the stars of the show. No matter who usually cooks in the family, the prospect of a delicious feast in the works sets the bar quite high. This is our challenge to you: even if it's not your year to cook the main course, we bet you can use one of these Thanksgiving side dishes to bring along as a contribution. Share the eCookbook with the rest of your family, and you can all take a different chapter and choose recipes to bring to the dinner table. Whether you're in charge of the rolls or the stuffing, there's a side dish recipe to please everyone.
If you're one of those people that likes to double up on rolls, you're in luck 'cause we've got plenty of bread and roll recipes for you to choose from. We love eating our Old Time Corn Bread Muffins (page 2) right out of the oven. Break one open, spread on a pat of butter, and you'll be in Thanksgiving heaven! Or if you're looking for something a little sweeter, then we know you'll love our Sweet Potato Biscuits (page 3). We love to top this Thanksgiving side dish with maple syrup for an extra sweet treat. You may just need to grab another one for dessert!
While some of you may dread having to eat a few healthy veggies when there are so many dishes available on Thanksgiving, we've got a few side dish vegetable recipes that may just have you changing your tune. We've got Homestyle Green Beans (page 7) that taste just like Grandma always made. Cooked to perfection with a few crunchy nuts thrown in, it's a filling dish that'll have you reaching back for seconds. Plus, head on out to the farmer's market and come back with some ingredients for our Saucy Squash Bake (page 8). It's a seasonal dish that encapsulates the spirit of autumn.
We know that potatoes belong in the veggie category, but we just had so many great side dish recipes to choose from that we're putting it in a class all on its own! Everyone has a favorite type of potato dish. No matter if you're on Team Mashed or Team Sweet, we know you'll find a side dish potato recipe you'll absolutely love. You can appease everyone in the family with just one dish with our Patchwork Potatoes (page 12). A colorful addition to your Thanksgiving menu, this dish contains both mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes for a match made in side dish heaven! If you're looking to stick to traditional foods, then you won't want to miss out on our Award Winning Mashed Potatoes (page 13). If you've got a potato happy family, then you may need to bake a double batch of these 'cause they sure are tasty!
You can't have potatoes without a side of gravy, right? Our easy gravy recipes are the perfect complement to your meal. You need something to top off that gravy too, you know! We love how hassle-free it is to make our 2-Step Turkey Gravy (page 17). With so many different dishes to keep track of, you don't have the time or energy to spend all this time on the gravy. With this simply recipe for gravy though, you can put your mind at ease, knowing that making it will be the easy part of the night! We bet no one will complain if there's a unique spin on this year's gravy recipe, especially when it involves a beloved ingredient like bacon. Our Bacon Turkey Gravy (page 21) is a real treat because it's got a smokier edge, taking your meal to the next level.
Who doesn't love stuffing, especially when it's homemade? We love grabbing a bit of stuffing and pairing it with our mashed potatoes. Talk about a forkful of deliciousness in every bite! Relive the magic of Thanksgiving dinners from your younger days with our stuffing recipe we like to call Mama's Old Fashioned Stuffing (page 23). It's got all the ingredients you loved growing up: celery, onions, carrots... the works! It's these fresh ingredients that really make this side dish something special. Or if you're looking to mix things up, we've got some out-of-the-ordinary stuffing recipes you may just have to make every year. Our Pretzel Stuffing (page 26) has just the right amount of crunch and flavor to make this a contender for best stuffing recipe ever.
When you're heading over to someone else's house for your Thanksgiving meal, the host will surely appreciate you bringing over a casserole side dish to help fill out the table. And boy, do we have a wonderful selection for you! Our Sweet Potato Casserole (page 29) is an annual favorite at any household and will make your whole kitchen smell amazing. If you've been eating apples late into the season, then we know you're going to really love our casserole recipe for Cran-Apple Casserole (page 31). It combines two seasonal fruits to create one side dish casserole you'll be making all season long. Plus, you can bring it out again around Christmas!
If you've worked up an appetite reading about that Cran-Apple Casserole, then you've come to the best part of our free eCookbook: the cranberry sauce recipe section. The finishing touch to any Thanksgiving menu, this selection of easy cranberry sauce recipes are must-have favorites. From our traditional Baked Cranberry Sauce (page 33) to our nutty Cranberry Pecan Relish (page 34), you can't go wrong no matter what you choose. We love serving these in clear dishes, so the vibrant red color can add decoration to our table. It's the last piece of the puzzle that makes our Thanksgiving side dish menu truly complete, so you're ready to enjoy a wonderful meal with your loved ones. Thanksgiving side dishes like these don't come around everyday!

If you want a lemony-herb fish dish, that's packed with flavor and easy to make, then you've got to try our All-American Fish-in-Foil. We used catfish, because it's firm enough to stay together and delicate enough to wrap it in foil. It's a perfectly seasoned, easy-as-can be dinner that you're going to love to share with family and friends.
