35 Classic Thanksgiving Side Dish Recipes

Still need to plan your Thanksgiving menu? If you're looking for inspiration, then be sure to check out this fantastic round-up Classic Thanksgiving Side Dish Recipes on Taste As You! 


You know how some people get really excited about the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks? That's how excited I get about turning the calendar over to November. Because November means the coming of the holiday season and the celebration of Thanksgiving.

As much as we look forward to spending the day in the company of loved ones, Stephen and I have decided to stay home this year so we can enjoy our first Thanksgiving as a family of three. Of course, staying home means that I'll be cooking the big meal, and I have to admit that I'm a little intimidated by the idea.

I know I have to plan for certain must-haves -- roast turkey, apple chestnut stuffing, and green bean casserole -- but I'm having a hard time choosing which additional side dishes to make. While I want there to be enough variety so it truly feels like Thanksgiving (as opposed to Sunday dinner), I don't want to wind up preparing a lot of extra food that we'll have no hope of finishing.

Even with multiple rounds of leftovers.

Because of my culinary dilemma, I've reached out to my fellow food bloggers for help to put together this photo-heavy round-up of 35 Classic Thanksgiving Side Dish Recipes. Each and every one of these dishes sounds amazing, and I'm positive that this round-up will serve as the perfect source of inspiration as I continue to tweak our holiday menu!
