30 Favorite Thanksgiving Side Dish Recipes

Have you started making your menu for Thanksgiving yet?  Does it include favorite recipes from your childhood….or have you decided to venture out and try new exotic foods?  I always like to throw in a few new recipes each year, but I also like to include the Thanksgiving side dish classics.  You know, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, stuffing, green beans…..yep, all those good comfort foods.  But I also like trying new variations on those classics, to mix it up a bit.  So I’ve been gathering new recipes to try this year….and have found some really delicious ones to try.

Maybe some of these will help with your Thanksgiving Side Dish menu too!

    Step 1: Cut 18 strands of cord 96 inches long each. You’ll also cut one main rope that all the others will be knotted to that’s about 80 inches long. Fold the rope in half and knot it around the main line.

    And then my menu got completely revamped after my mouth watered looking through your post.

    I would add to this list Robin’s Stuffed Acorn Squash recipe from your site. I use dried cranberries instead of pineapple and it has been on our Thanksgiving table for the last two years. Even people who don’t normally like squash say it is good!

    Hi you posted a gluten free pie curst recipe back in 2015. There are no responses to any current comments. Your baking instructions confuse me. It looks like you instructed to blind back for cold or no bake pies. If I want to bake a pecan pie or a fruit pie do would I just put the filling in the raw pie dough and bake as directed? Really want to use this for Thanksgiving but I need to be sure before proceed. thanks!

    1. Ashley says:

      Yes, you would bake as instructed, according to the pie type you’re making. So, if you’re making pumpkin pie, you pour the raw pumpkin mixture into a raw crust, and cook it just like instructed on your pumpkin pie recipe. That way, the crust will cook along with the filling of your pie, just like any normal raw pie crust. Hope that helps!
