Thanksgiving Sides


My favorite part of Thanksgiving, well really any holiday, is the food, specifically the sides. I don’t eat a ton of meat, especially not turkey, so the sides are the real deal for me. I mean who doesn’t love sides? I put a lot of thought into my sides for Thanksgiving and while I’ll be traveling this holiday, I’ve still been salivating over all of these options so I thought I would share with you all.

Creamed Corn – it’s not a proper holiday without creamed corn. This recipe is made in a slow cooker and in my humble opinion that’s the best way to have it. The longer the cream/butter/corn can meld together in a crock pot, the better.

Homemade Green Bean Casserole – I’m all about making things from scratch and not including condensed soup (which most of these have). The thing I love about this recipe is the homemade friend onion topping – hello!

Stuffing – I love me some Jillian Harris and I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for years. She knows her food so I know this one is a keeper.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes – mashed potatoes are a pretty simple thing to make (not if you’re my mom :)) but I like this one because first, it’s the pioneer woman’s recipe so it’s bound to be good and second, it has roasted garlic to add a little pizzaz.

Cheesy Onion Casserole – although I love onions, I know some people don’t. I made this a few years ago and it was tasty! And I swear it is not super overpowering with onion. See the chicken soup substitute here.

Sweet Potato Crostini – a different take on sweet potatoes. This dish is full of flavor and the presentation will be sure to impress your guests.

Honey Butter Rolls – I have still yet to perfect rolls like this but this recipe looks so good and fairly easy. Every Thanksgiving meal needs a good roll. Hell, every meal should have a roll.

Balsamic Brussel Sprouts – a vegetable for all of those family members who think they need to eat semi healthy during the holidays (#lame). It’s a no fuss recipe cooked in a slow cooker.

Fall Salad – we always joke amongst our friends that it’s nice to have something “fresh” along with all of the butter and cream….even if fresh is covered in feta and dressing.

Happy eating!

xoxo, Becca
