best Thanksgiving sides

The Thanksgiving Turkey typically gets center stage, but dinner is not complete without the sides!

With fall in full force, the sides tend to consist of delicious warm, earthy ingredients. Items like sweet potatoes and vegetables find their way into our hearts (and hips) 😉 like no other time of the year. 

No need to look further for your Thanksgiving sides! We’ve collected them all, along with some Thanksgiving dinner ideas and appetizers. Be sure to check them out to complete the Turkey Day Menu.

I’ve compiled some of the BEST Thanksgiving side dishes, including vegetables, potatoes, rolls, and a few other favorites!

But before I get into it, continue reading below for some very helpful tips that will make your Thanksgiving sides foolproof. 

Thanksgiving side dishes - sweet potato casserole up close.

Our most popular sides

This could be a no brainer. Some families stick to tradition and always serve Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce, Sweet Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Mashed Potatoes and Rolls. I have some family members (ahem, my sibling’s spouses) who don’t consider it Thanksgiving without them.

My own siblings, on the other hand, love just serving our favorite dishes. No matter what sides your family likes to serve, I have all the recipes you need for the Best Thanksgiving Menu.

Seasonal Produce:  When making your menu, consider using produce that is in season. They tend to be the most fresh, most available, and most cost effective. Some common fall produce include:

  • Vegetables – Arugula, Beets, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Butternut Squash, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Eggplant, Garlic, Green Beans, Leafy Greens, Onions, Parsnips, Peas, Peppers, Potatoes, Pumpkin, Radish, Rosemary, Sage, Turnips, Sweet Potatoes, Zucchini.
  • Fruits Apple, Pear, Grape, Persimmon, Cranberries, Figs, Key Limes, Pomegranate, Banana, Kiwifruit, Lemon, Mango, Pineapple, Raspberry.

Tips + TRICKS FOR easy Thanksgiving Side dishes

How much to make: You do NOT want to run out of food, especially on Thanksgiving when food is what we gather around to express our gratitude for life’s blessings. The following information can help guide you:

  • Potato dish: 6 oz per person
  • Vegetable dish: 4 oz per person
  • Rolls: 1 ½ per person 
  • Salad: ½ cup per person

How to serve: If you have a larger than normal table, try to have each dish available at both ends of the table. If you have more than one table set up, be sure that each dish is available at every table. 

  • Buffet style. My family likes to serve everything buffet style. We place everything on one long table. The plates, napkins, and utensils are first, followed by the main dishes, then all of the sides.
  • Family style. I have also attended dinners where everything was placed at the table and passed around.

Make ahead of time: Many side dishes can be made ahead of time. Whether you plan to cook up a storm, or attend a turkey trot, make dishes ahead of time so the morning runs more smoothly. The individual recipes have more information on how to make ahead of time, and store leftovers. 

Keeping sides hot: Even if you’re able to make some dishes ahead of time, at some point everything needs to get heated and kept hot, until it’s all ready to serve. Here are a few ideas to help keep your food hot:

  • A cooler: Not just for keeping food cold. Its insulation will also help retain heat. Cover the pots and pans with a lid or foil, and stack them inside. (Be sure they don’t smoosh the food underneath).
  • Use the grill. A gas grill, with a thermometer, will work to keep foods warm. Keep the internal temp around 200°F.
  • A crock pot set to low or warm. 
  • Use an insulated food carrier.
  • Chafing Dishes.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Instructions
 

  • Dissolve the yeast and 1 teaspoon of sugar in the warm water in a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Let sit 5-10 minutes, until bubbly and foamy.
  • Add the butter, warm milk, egg, remaining ⅓ cup sugar, and salt to the yeast mixture.
  • Add 2 cups of flour, and mix until combined. Mix in additional flour, ¼ cup at a time, to form a soft dough that pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  • Knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Shape the dough into a ball, place in a greased bowl, cover, and let rise for about one hour, until doubled.
  • Gently punch down the dough after it has risen and divide into two balls. Roll each ball out into a circle that is about 12 inches wide, then cut each circle into twelve wedges using a pizza cutter.
  • Roll each wedge of dough up, starting at the wide end, to form a crescent shape. Place on a lightly greased or parchment lined baking sheet, cover, and let rise until doubled, 30-60 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 while the dough is rising. Bake 10-12 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from the oven and brush with the melted butter. Serve warm.

    Thanksgiving isn’t complete without the sides!! We make a ton & they are mostly from your site. We love all the potato dishes!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this amazing thanksgiving side dishes recipe! Will surely have this again! It’s really easy to make and it tasted so delicious! Highly recommended!

    I love both the traditional side ideas along with other sides that look amazing.
    I have made the roll recipe listed on the card. I had a hard time slicing the rolled dough into even triangles, but that was a “user” error and I’m sure just needs more practice on my end. The rolls themselves were fluffy and everyone loved them.

    Thank you for all your amazing recipes ! This Thanksgiving I made your Funeral Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, and sweet potato casserole ! All were amazing . We add a new recipe to our table every Thanksgiving .

    We always have sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving – as a side dish and as a desert in pie form . We’re not much on mashed potatoes and usually have them with certain meats like meatloaf and roast beef. None of us like turkey a lot so we usually only have that on Thanksgiving and occasionally, I will make legs, wings, or a breast (for sandwiches), if I get a taste for turkey. This year, though, I am thinking of shaking things up a bit and I want to try the Loaded Potatoes casserole. It sounds really delicious. Thanks for sharing. I can’t wait to taste it.

  6. 5 stars
    Thanksgiving is always great because of the sides. These mashed potatoes are the best. I’ve always used butter and sour cream in my potatoes but will definitely add the cream cheese. Cream cheese always makes food better. The turkey will be the star of the dinner but these potatoes will be the be next best. Thank you for all your great recipes. They are amazing.

    Mashed potatoes with butter! Great Thanksgiving side! Especially when you pour the gravy over it . . . Yummy!!!
