28 Easy Thanksgiving Side Dishes

By: Emily Artinian, Editor of
Easy Thanksgiving Side Dishes

Thanksgiving is the time of year to reflect on what you are thankful for. Hopefully our guide, 28 Thanksgiving Side Dish Recipes, will be on that list. We have put together a collection of a variety of Thanksgiving side dish recipes! There are green bean casseroles, stuffing recipes, mashed potatoes, and more. We hope you find what you are looking for. Some may even turn into dishes you make every year.

While each family has their own holiday traditions, don't let your Thanksgiving dinner get stale. Keep the turkey the same for those traditionalists, but mix it up when it comes to the side dishes. The sky's the limit! There are plenty of variations on your favorite recipes. Many of these side dish recipes are Test Kitchen-approved so that your Thanksgiving dinner will be a guaranteed success.

Green Bean Casserole Recipes

Green Bean Casserole Cups

Among your Thanksgiving side dish recipes, there has to be one for green beans. Here are some great options. One is just like the famous green bean casserole with French-fried onions, except it doesn't use cream of mushroom soup. The other excludes any mushroom flavor, so if you're not a fan of mushrooms, this recipe's for you. Others include special, homemade versions of the iconic casserole that will remind you of your childhood.

Thanksgiving Stuffing Recipes

Mom's Favorite Stuffing

It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without stuffing. Here are some good choices. They contain cranberries, pasta, artichokes, and even mashed potatoes. These may not be traditional stuffing recipes, but they're mighty tasty.

Mashed Potato Recipes

Mashed potatoes are a favorite of Thanksgiving side dish recipes. We have some that you have to try. One version can be made ahead, which is always a plus for Thanksgiving recipes.

Cauliflower Casseroles

Cheese-It's-Good Cauliflower Casserole

Cauliflower is a good ingredient in Thanksgiving side dish recipes. This Twice Baked Cauliflower recipe is similar to the famous twice baked potatoes and just as delicious.
