Best Ever Thanksgiving Sides

Finding the perfect sides for Thanksgiving can be a challenge, during the holidays you are hosting your friends and family and I know you really want to spoil them with scrumptious food. So, when only your best will do you really have to pull out all the stops. For that reason, we have gathered our Best Ever Thanksgiving Sides. They are sure to make your dinner a raving success.

I know for some, the turkey is the star of the show. But for my family, it is all about the spread. We have put together our collection of the Best Ever Thanksgiving Sides. Everything you need for your table, except maybe cranberry sauce and the turkey.

Have a spectacular celebration and enjoy time with your loved ones!


With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

Best Ever Drop Biscuits (Red Lobster Copycat Cheddar Bay Biscuit Copycat) are light and flaky, garlicky cheddar drop biscuits glistening with butter and speckled with parsley.  Slightly crisp on the outside and perfectly tender on the inside. This recipe is so easy, it only takes one bowl, one whisk, no baking mix and 20 minutes!  Yes, only 20 minutes from start till serve.


The Best Stuffing Recipe Ever starts with sausage, cranberry and apple. Herbs and spices are added in but the real magic happens as the pan is deglazed with the most glorious combination of liquids and those bits are scraped up creating the most magnificent sauce to bake the stuffing in. Oh my word!


Best Ever Sweet Potato Casserole (Boston Market Copycat), is one for your recipe book!  Rich sweet potatoes covered in marshmallow and brown sugar streusel topping are a side dish to remember. 


Best Ever Slow Cooker Creamed Corn recipe doesn't get much easier. Simply toss 6 ingredients into the slow cooker or crockpot and a few hours later you have the silkiest, creamiest most divine creamed corn you have ever eaten. 

Perfect Turkey Gravy is the only recipe you will ever need for gravy! Made with turkey drippings OR NOT it is truly a glorious gravy unlike anything you have had before. It is made with 4 ingredients you probably have on hand plus the perfect blend of herbs and spices. It all comes together in just 20 minutes!

Best Ever Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts.  This is the only recipe you will ever need.  I have never liked Brussels sprouts.  Until now.  Oh and I ate the entire 2 pound batch of Brussels in one day.  I may need a Brussels intervention.

Best Ever Mashed Potatoes are rich and creamy with the perfect texture and flavor. A decadent side dish fit for a special occasion with a simple recipe that makes them easy enough to make any night of the week. With make ahead instructions these are the ultimate mashed potatoes!
