Are you looking for the perfect roundup of Thanksgiving side dishes? This Thanksgiving side dish roundup is going to give you everything from cranberry sauce to the most perfect mashed potatoes!
It’s that holiday time of the year! It’s time to get cozy, put on our elastic-waisted pants, and enjoy all the delicious stick-to-your-ribs winter food!
This time of the year is my favorite for cooking because I just love all things cozy and warm.
For this roundup, I’m giving you some classic Thanksgiving side dishes that will be the perfect addition to your holiday table.
I included all the classics like cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and stuffing but also decided to throw in some other ideas like on the stalk roasted Brussels sprouts, creamed kale, and even stuffing packed with kale!
Craving the best mashed potatoes of your life? Well, these instant pot mashed potatoes are JUST what you need in your life. Cooked in chicken stock and garlic and seasoned with butter, half and half, kosher salt, black pepper, and just a touch of dried herbs.
I think no Thanksgiving meal is complete without cranberry sauce! And this cranberry orange sauce with ginger is the perfect accompaniment to your holiday table. Plus, it’s so easy to make you’ll be wondering why you ever bought it in a can!
These on the stalk roasted Brussels sprouts are the BIGGEST showstopper of the holiday season. I roasted them simply with olive oil, kosher salt, and black pepper, but you can drizzle them with maple syrup, add garlic, etc. to create whatever flavor you’re craving.
This is one of my MOST favorite stuffings because it’s got all my favorite things – potato bread, sausage, dried cranberries, and fresh herbs! The recipe calls for half a pound of sweet Italian sausage and half a pound of spicy Italian sausage but you can use a full pound of either one if you’re more of a sweet or spicy kind of sausage lover.
This recipe is simple but sometimes you just need a simple side dish to make the day less complicated – am I right? This tutorial on THE BEST roasted sweet potatoes is going to give you all the tips for a delicious and simple side dish. Serve with butter, brown sugar, fresh herbs, etc. The options are endless!
Craving an easy recipe using squash? I know squash usually has a reputation for taking forever to bake and hard to cut through, but not delicata squash! It cooks up quickly, is easy to cut, and you can eat the skin as it roasts up perfectly! This recipe is seasoned with maple syrup and a touch of cinnamon!
Listen, my love for potatoes and cheese is extra high in the holiday season! While I originally posted this recipe around Easter it’s equally delicious for any holiday table! Plus, who doesn’t love thinly sliced potatoes baked up in a rich and creamy cheese sauce?
Honey roasted carrots are a fabulous addition to Thanksgiving! They are sweet and savory and pair perfectly with both turkey and ham! I love using the little tri-color carrots for this recipe but really any carrot you can find will work here. Parsnips would work well here too!
For a few years now these roasted white sweet potatoes have been a HUGE hit on the blog! I’m not sure if because all of you love white sweet potatoes or because you just love honey cinnamon glaze but whatever the reason if you haven’t tried this recipe you need to change that immediately! If you can’t find white sweet potatoes you can also use orange sweet potatoes.
There are a lot of things I learned to love in my adult life and one of those things is creamed kale! This recipe is simple and easy and I love serving it with turkey, chicken, pork, or even beef! If you can’t find frozen shredded kale you can easily substitute in some frozen shredded spinach. Both will have very similar flavors.
I’m a total stuffing lover and that includes everything from the most traditional to the most unique of stuffing recipes! This sourdough kale bacon sausage stuffing tastes like southern greens and stuffing came together and had a baby! It’s so flavorful and the breakfast sausage adds a punch of sage and herb flavor!
Need a twist to traditional sweet potato casserole? Well, this version adds vanilla bean paste, crunchy granola, and just a touch of vanilla sugar. It’s the perfect non-traditional twist on a traditional Thanksgiving classic!
Love mashed potatoes but are craving something a little different? Why not go simple with these instant pot mashed sweet potatoes? They are a breeze to make, and don’t take up stove space thanks to the use of the Instant Pot!
I love a stuffing recipe that gives me all the flavors – sweet, salty, and savory! And this pancetta apple fennel brioche stuffing gives you all of that! I love the use of brioche bread because it’s non-traditional but brings in a subtle sweetness and buttery flavor.
