10 Favorite Side Dishes for Thanksgiving

When it comes to Thanksgiving side dishes I must confess that I am a carb-loving, starch hoarding connoisseur. I love the Thanksgiving feast in its entirety, but side dishes are the comfort food of choice when it comes to leftovers – the creamier the better.

There is an unspoken understanding around Thanksgiving meals most people subscribe to: it is not about one meal but several days after too. Thanksgiving weekend is about spending time with friends and family enjoying an incredible meal on Thursday, followed by a weekend of grazing on leftovers that should be guilt free. Mashed potatoes, stuffing, sweet potato casseroles… I love them all and always feel a little sad when I scoop the last of the side dishes from their leftover containers onto my plate.

Today I have a great round-up of side dish recipes from PBS Food, Kitchen Explorers, and from dedicated food bloggers around the web. We hope these dishes inspire you to enjoy the Holidays with great food, friends, family, and memorable conversations.
