Inside:  These (mouthwatering!) easy Thanksgiving sides will have your family going back for seconds. Save these for your next Thanksgiving potluck meal!

Happy Thanksgiving!  This holiday has become the often overlooked younger sister of Christmas.  It’s not flashy, but sometimes the simplicity of Thanksgiving is what makes it so special.

If you have a larger family or group of friends, you might have a tradition of hosting a Thanksgiving potluck.  Maybe the host(ess) cooks the turkey, and guests bring a side dish.  You might plan a menu to make sure everything is covered, or you might leave it up to chance and have a true pot “luck” meal.

It saves a lot of money and headache for the chef, but it also means you’re probably searching for an amazing side dish to bring.  Well, you’re in luck!  These recipes will be keepers for sure!

The Top 10 Thanksgiving Sides

These Thanksgiving recipes for side dishes are AMAZING! (They'll ask you to bring them back every year from now on.)

We Dig the Potatoes

Turkey is, of course, the star of Thanksgiving.  But I think a close second would be mashed potatoes.  You can’t have a proper Thanksgiving meal without them!

These Slow Cooker Buttery Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes look delicious.  Plus, since they are made in the slow cooker, they should travel well and won’t cause you to stand in the kitchen all day.

When it comes to sweet potatoes (or yams), families seem to fall firmly in the marshmallows camp or the no marshmallows camp.  Our family is against the mix of marshmallows and sweet potatoes, but we do love this recipe!  It is NOT for the health conscious person… but it is definitely for anyone who loves the taste of awesome on a fork.

Even if you choose another recipe for your pot luck, you definitely have to try these roasted carrots!  This simple recipe blends a variety of flavors that meld deliciously together.

Another delicious veggie option is Creamy Broccoli Salad.  It’s a great spin on broccoli that even non-lovers of the little trees will enjoy.  (If anyone seems doubtful, mention the bacon ingredient to them.)

We really enjoy eating roasted veggies in the fall and winter.  They are especially great at Thanksgiving when your taste buds are ready for a break from some of the more fatty and sugary parts of the meal.

Corn is a staple of the Thanksgiving meal.  No story of the Pilgrims and Indians is complete without a mention of this food!  But it’s often overlooked, especially as plates become full and space is limited.

No more!

This recipe will give your corn some extra kick and will establish its “beloved” status once again.
