These Thanksgiving side dish recipes are both familiar classics as well as a few surprise twists. They’re certain to be the talk of the dinner table—or rather, the oohs and aahs of contentedness at the table.
Homemade Cornbread Sausage Dressing
You're going to find yourself dreaming up excuses all year around to make this amazing southern style stuffing. Swear.
Classic Green Bean Casserole
Green beans? Check. Creamy mushroomy sauce? Check. Can opener? Uh…no thank you. Not this Thanksgiving.
Macaroni Au Gratin
So magnificently and outrageously incredible that folks have literally applauded it at the dinner table. Swear. Easy enough for weeknights. Elegant enough for impressing guests.
Herbed Bread and Celery Stuffing
A classic. Bread stuffing filled with celery, onion, thyme, basil, and parsley that's synonymous with Thanksgiving (though honestly, it's equally welcome all times of year with roast chicken).
Classic Sweet Potato Casserole
"My new go-to sweet potato casserole." "A keeper." That's what folks are saying about this insanely easy sweet potato casserole.
Southern Buttermilk Biscuits
"Spectacular." "Sinful." "Easy." "Airy." "Buttery." "Lofty." "Perfect." That's what folks are saying about these lovely buttermilk biscuits.
Sweet Potato Soufflé
Not entirely unlike the marshmallow-topped sweet potato casserole of your childhood, this "souffle" is ever so slightly more sophisticated with its pecan streusel.
Pan-Fried Green Beans
Simple yet spectacular green beans thanks to the perfect technique from Alain Ducasse.
Buttery Pull-Apart Rolls
These exceptionally airy pull-apart rolls bake up crisp on the outside, tender on the inside, and, yes, light as a feather through and through.
Inside-Out Sweet Potatoes
Mashed sweet potatoes are slathered over marshmallows, coated in crushed corn flakes, and deep-fried until crisp. Talk about something to be thankful for!
Broccoli and Blue Cheese Gratin
Ooooh baby! Broccoli blanketed with a creamy rich white sauce that takes its oomph from blue cheese and its hint of heat from cayenne.
