10 Thanksgiving Side Dish Recipes  |  RobynsOnlineWorld.com

Are you still planning your Thanksgiving Day menu? Or have you been asked to bring something to someone else’s house for the feast? Here are ten side dish recipes that would be great for any Thanksgiving table!

Baked Acorn Squash with Maple Glaze 1-1

I love how simple this recipe is and that there are only 4 ingredients! This is something that is a little different and looks gorgeous.

Cast Iron Skillet Cranberry Stuffing via Juggling Act Mama

Hubby will eat stuffing but it is not usually his favorite part of the meal. However, when I came across this homemade stuffing recipe that you cook in a cast iron skillet I thought this might be the one for him. For whatever reason he thinks everything cooked in cast iron is delicious.

Herbed Corn for a Crowd RECIPE

Corn is one of those things everyone will eat I think, but I like the idea of dressing it up a bit for the holiday table. This recipe makes a large batch but is still quite easy.

Creamed Pearl Onion Gratin RECIPE

Years ago I would have just totally skipped a recipe like this but the more I cook and the more things I try the more I like items like this. I am guessing the onions cut through the richness of the cream and make a great dish.

Roasted butternut squash with balsamic and rosemary

I thought these were potatoes when I first saw the picture and was surprised that it was butternut squash. Then to add balsamic and rosemary – yum!

Artichoke Pesto Deviled Eggs

I always want to love deviled eggs, but I generally don’t. However they are a huge hit with my family so there is always some variety of them at every holiday meal. This Italian twist may be the ones I finally enjoy.

Vegetarian Pear-Cranberry Wild Rice Stuffed Acorn Squash

It seems most of us know a vegetarian or two these days. While many of the side dishes are already without meat, I think this one looks more substantial as part of a plate full of food for vegetarians on Thanksgiving. Bonus – non-vegetarians will love it too.

And if you need more side dish ideas check out some of my own recipes I’ve shared with you in the past.

Sweet Potatoes in Orange Cups
A sure crowd pleaser of adults and kids. My family has asked me to bring this many times for our holiday meals.

balsamic-roasted-brussels-sprouts

Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts
This is one of the most popular recipes here on my blog. I am actually making this this Thanksgiving myself as one of our side dishes.

Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese Bake
Another favorite side dish with my family. This is easy to prepare ahead of time also.

Finally, just for a little fun. Make sure you print out my Thanksgiving Fact & Joke Cards to share on the table. These are just fun little things to get people talking and laughing during the meal.

Are you cooking this Thanksgiving? What sides will you be making? Which of these recipes would you most like to try?
