Thanksgiving Side Dish Recipes

In this post I’ll be sharing some of my favorite traditional Thanksgiving Side Dish Recipes.

My favorite holiday meal is upon us, Thanksgiving. Most years this means a gathering of loved ones around the dinner table for an elaborate feast that takes days to prepare.

It’s a way for a cook, like myself, to show love to those that they love with a special home cooked meal.

While the main course, whatever you prefer it to be – turkey, chicken, a pork roast or prime rib, it is the Thanksgiving side dishes that really steal the show.

Go ahead and ask anyone what their favorite foods are at Thanksgiving and they’ll freely list them out. Everything on the list will be a tasty side.

It’s true that we all have our very favorite Thanksgiving side dishes. That may be from our own tastes in food or from our culture or area that we grew up.

The typical sides served at our Southern Thanksgiving table will always include dressing, baked macaroni and cheese, a vegetable or two and a potato dish of some sort. 

If I were a betting lady then I’d predict that the dressing, or stuffing, is often hailed the number one favorite of all.

So let’s have a look at some of my favorite Thanksgiving side dish recipes.
