Thanksgiving Side Dish Ideas

imagesThanksgiving will be here before you know it! Here is a list of some quick, easy, and yummy side dishes that can be made for your Thanksgiving dinner. This year, we are going to my mom’s house so no need to cook for us. My husband and I are happy to not be responsible for cooking, but at the same time it means NO leftovers! We are going on vacation in December, over Christmas, so I think in January we are going to cook a big spread and savor some of those leftovers. I think we are going to find a local butcher also where we can buy a fresh turkey, none of that frozen stuff 🙂 Here are a few sides that hopefully will make your Thanksgiving meal prep go a little smoother:

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Buttered Noodles for those picky eaters

Collard Greens – Add a Southern flare to your meal this year!

Hummus – Great for a snack before the actual meal. Serve with whole wheat crackers and fresh veggies

Meatballs – Another great food to have as a snack before the meal.

Sweet Potatoes – A fun twist on sweet potatoes. Rather than serving mashed sweet potatoes, try this recipe for a simple and sweet side dish.


What are you thinking of putting on your menu for Thanksgiving? We love have the traditional sides like mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, rolls, green beans, a salad, and then of course the turkey!
