Last Minute Thanksgiving Side Dishes

Ok, so who actually cares about the turkey tomorrow?

Are those crickets I hear?

In my opinion, turkey is so overrated. Roasted chicken? I’m in. But there’s something about the bigger bird that just does nothing for me. So on the biggest food day of the year, I’ll gladly pass up the main dish and go for all the sides piled high on my plate instead.

And in case you’re running around totally last minute needing to figure out something to bring to your T-day shindig (I’d know nothing about that), here’s a few of my favorite sides from the archives.

Happy Thanksgiving!

sweet potato goat cheese puffs

cheesy zucchini quinoa

green bean fries

roasted broccoli & cauliflower parmesan gratin

goat cheese & spinach mashed sweet potatoes

salted rosemary roasted radishes

shaved brussels sprouts fruit salad

caramelized onion parsnip puree

spicy yogurt pan fried cauliflower

crispy baked butternut squash chips

sweet potato kale bites

perfectly crispy rosemary baked fries

Put on the spandex and dig in.

    I’m with you, I’d rather have side dishes then the actual Turkey! I get lucky and get to bake a 16lbs. turkey for just my Husband and I. Whoopie Doo!! The worse part is my Husband only wants mashed potatoes, no side dishes just potatoes!!! How boring is that? I’ll still make side dishes so I have leftovers for the week!

    Have a happy Thanksgiving!!
