Thanksgiving Side Dishes
The wonderful feast of thanksgiving is filled with side dishes! I can make a meal with the side dishes alone. One of my favorite things is a cranberry and stuffing sandwich. A roll with a bit of margarine, a thin slice of cranberry and a tablespoon of stuffing. Smoosh it all together and you will actually hear me say mmmm after the first bite.
With Thanksgiving ( here in the US) just a couple of weeks away I thought it would be fun to “round up” ( yes I think just put some cowgirl boots on) and “rope in” a few wonderful side dish alternatives to inspire your meals. I’m still feeling poorly from my stomach bug, I may have watched one to many westerns on the classic film channel 🙂
Whether you are cooking for two ( like I am) or for 200, I hope you will find some wonderful inspiration for your holiday meal.
Last year I shared my holiday stuffing recipe and I think you might find some yummy vegetable recipes on my recipe page too. But, today it is about all of the creative souls who share their yumminess on pinterest. Please keep in mind that all of the original photos belong to their respective blogs and websites. 🙂 You can find all of the recipes and more on my Thanksgiving pinterest board ( it is a work in progress)
Grab your fork and spoon….
Lets start with the stuffing. The absolute must have side dish for “Turkey Day”. There are so many wonderful recipes for stuffing. Some are made with sourdough, others with cornbread or white bread. They all have one thing in common, they are all somebody’s favorite. I like the ones with mushrooms! I am not suggesting you replace your favorite. But, maybe make a second stuffing! What, that’s right, two.You know your tummy will be happy.
Cranberry sauce is a must too. Some of us like it jellied and from a can ( shhhh, yes that is me). But, I know fresh is truly the way to go. These yummy cranberry side dishes are sure to add some colorful flavor to your Thanksgiving meal.
Potatoes, whipped creamy and filled with flavor can also be my down fall. I make mine with lots of butter and milk, then I whip them fluffy with my hand mixer.
Yams and sweet potatoes are not one of my favorite things. But I know for many of you it wouldn’t be a holiday feast without them.
The green bean casserole has made its way from the 1950’s dinner table to present day. Along the way it has undergone a delicious transformation. No offense to those who love the more traditional dish.:-)
Lets not forget the bread! The rolls, we must have rolls!
You will often find something wonderful when you try something new. One of these delicious side dishes may become one of your new favorites.Just a reminder to try any new recipe once before you make it for your guests 🙂
