Thanksgiving: Side Dishes and Desserts

Thanksgiving is all about the sides. There, I said it! Now, don’t get me wrong, Thanksgiving just wouldn’t be the same without the turkey, but all the flavor and fun is in the scrumptious dishes that accompany that beautiful bird. Am I right? My favorite classics include green bean casserole, roasted butternut squash, and Waldorf salad. I’m so glad Thanksgiving is only a week away because I’m craving some hearty comfort food.

 1. Skillet Scalloped Corn  // 2. Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecan Topping // 3. Roast Green Beans with Beets, Feta and Walnuts // 4. Slow-Baked Tomatoes with Garlic and Mint // 5. Mashed Potato Pots // 6. Cheesy Mashed Potatoes with Gouda and Crispy Pancetta // 7. Savory Butternut Squash Dressing // 8. Florence Mama’s Candied Yams

If you are looking to mix things up this year with some delicious new sides, I’ve collected eight fabulous recipes that are sure to complement your turkey and keep your guests begging for another helping. As a bonus (if you still have room), I also found four unique and beautiful desserts. I mean, what’s Thanksgiving without a slice of pie?

1. Autumn Pumpkin Bars // 2. Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake // 3. Apple-Pear Praline Pie // 4. Fruit and Nut Chocolate Sticks // 5. Fresh Raspberry Bars

 

I hope you enjoyed my collection of recipes and make one or two your new family favorites! Wishing you a festive, happy, and delicious Thanksgiving!
