Thanksgiving Dinner Side Dishes

Thanksgiving Sides

Every year, as the holidays approach, we like to share some of our favorite recipes with you. And we have made so many side dishes, especially for Thanksgiving Dinner, that I thought we should compile them into one place. Thanksgiving dinner is made by the side dishes — even if you have the best turkey, the dinner falls flat without some great sides to fill up the plate. We’ve got all the classics: stuffing and potatoes, and some healthier options too!

Thanksgiving is possibly the most stressful holiday dinner, since the holiday itself revolves around a feast. But don’t let it get to you! With planning, your holiday menu can come true! All of these recipes are easy to make and delicious. Some of them can even be made the day before or the morning of. So have no fear, Chef Shamy is here!
