Thanksgiving will be here soon and you know what that means – FOOD! Who doesn’t love Thanksgiving food? Sure, turkey is great and all but the side dishes are where it’s at! Can ya tell I get excited about Thanksgiving food? This year I decided I wanted to make a master list of all the side dishes I made over the last few years that I love and add in a couple that I can’t wait to make in the future. In my mind I thought that can help us all – one spot for all the best Thanksgiving side dishes.

First, do you have a favorite Thanksgiving side dish you make every year? I would L-O-V-E to hear about so please let me know in the comments. If you want me to share the recipe with the readers of The Inspired Holiday just email me.

Now let’s get to the star of the show – all the best Thanksgiving side dishes





All The Best Thanksgiving Side Dishes



Vegetable Side Dishes for Thanksgiving

What’s Thanksgiving without a ton of delicious harvest vegetables. Believe it or not, in our family we are all {kids included} obsessed with brussel sprouts! Vegetables make for some of the best Thanksgiving side dishes – here’s a great sample of Thanksgiving vegetable side dishes I’ve tried and some I hope to try this year.

Garlic Herb Mushrooms

Brussel Sprouts and Bacon

Mashed Turnip Casserole

Thanksgiving Potato Side Dishes

Mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, roasted potatoes – whatever potato you like there’s a little something here for everyone. Personally, I love my Mom’s sweet potato casserole. I don’t even try to replicate it because I know it will never be as good as the way she makes it. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday to host but Mama always has to bring the sweet potatoes or it’s not really Thanksgiving. Potatoes are one of the staple Thanksgiving side dishes.

Thanksgiving Stuffing and Dressing Side Dishes

Whether you call it stuffing or dressing this is the real start of Thanksgiving. I know in our family we use to fight over who takes home the stuffing so now we literally make a pan for each family that comes to dinner.
