This collection of Thanksgiving side dishes is filled with inspirations and recipes to help you plan out your Thanksgiving menu. Whether you want a classic recipe or something more modern, this list has a little of everything.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love the holiday itself, and I love sharing Thanksgiving recipes and helping my readers to create food memories with their friends and families. For the past several years I have been creating unique Thanksgiving menus, and now I am organizing all of the Thanksgiving side dish recipes into this list so that everything is in one place.
My family tends to rely on the same recipes from year to year, but adding a new recipe can bring new life to Thanksgiving dinner. Add roasted carrots to the menu to contrast with the rich heavy foods Thanksgiving is known for. Or try a twist on a classic and make Chorizo Sage Stuffing or Fig and Cranberry Chutney.
The best thing is that most of these recipes can be prepared a day or two in advance and reheated on Thanksgiving. My trick to preparing food in advance is to add a little extra liquid (whether that is broth, sour cream, etc) to help prevent the side dish from drying out as it sits in the fridge and is reheated.
