Over 100 Super Easy Thanksgiving Side Dishes Anyone Can Make

Sharing is caring!

These Thanksgiving side dishes will make your dinner go off without a hitch.

Thanksgiving is almost here and it is time to start menu planning what you will be serving at your dinner table.

Over the years, I have shared several of my favorite Thanksgiving sides, so today, I have compiled a whole list just for Y'all!

These classic sides are fool-proof and so easy and so impressive to make. 

Super Easy Thanksgiving Side Dishes Anyone Can Make

  •  Old Fashioned Sage Cornbread Dressing — Old Fashioned Sage Cornbread Dressing is a true Southern staple during the holidays. My momma used to make this same recipe and now I am sharing it as well.
  • How to Make Freezer Parmesan Acorn Squash— This has become one of my new favorite veggies and it is so easy to make! Not only that but if you have leftovers, it can be frozen easily.
  • How to Make The Best Deviled Eggs — This is my mom's recipe and it is the best-deviled egg recipe on the Internet. Everyone who makes them raves about how delicious they are.
  • Hot Corn Dip – Quick and Easy 15 Minute Recipe — I love being able to serve appetizers that my guests can snack on while I am making dinner. This Hot Corn Dip is perfect for that — and it only takes 15 minutes to prepare!
  • Corn Pudding — Corn pudding is a new favorite side dish of our family. It combines the taste of fresh corn with creamed corn to create this egg-like pudding. It is SO good!
  • Brown Butter Honey Garlic Roasted Carrots — I used to just serve those canned carrots when I first started making Thanksgiving dinner, but over the last few years, I started experimenting with real carrots, and this is the recipe I landed on. It is so delicious and so easy to make.
  • Parker House Yeast Rolls — I absolutely love making rolls for our Thanksgiving dinner. I make them a few days ahead of time and then freeze them until I need them. To me, homemade is always best, but if you can't do homemade, Sister Schubert is always my back up and my go-to when I am in a pinch.
  • How to Make the Perfect Roasted Butternut Squash — If you want another great veggie for your Thanksgiving table, my roasted butternut squash has such a delicious and fall flavor. You can top it with sage, browned butter, or maple syrup — the possibilities are endless.
  •  Green Bean Casserole — This is one dish that I personally have never been a fan of, but I have made it many times to take to our church Thanksgiving dinner. It has great flavor and is a super easy side dish to prepare.
  • Green Bean Bundles – The Perfect Thanksgiving Side Dish — This has really become my all-time favorite way to eat green beans during Thanksgiving. The bacon and sauces really pump up the flavor in this green bean dish.
  •  Parmesan Rosemary Roasted Potatoes — I love taking new baby potatoes and roasting them with fresh rosemary and Parmesan. It's such a simple side dish everyone will love.
  • Delicious Mashed Potatoes — Making a pan of these from scratch mashed potatoes is simple and easy. Of course, if the boxed is the only thing you have on hand, you can totally do that. Either one works great, but if you have time, try making these.
  • Hashbrown Casserole — This is a must on every single Thanksgiving dinner table. I've been making this for years and it has always been a favorite for our family.
  • Blistered Green Beans: If you are having a healthier Thanksgiving, this recipe will be a treat for your guests.

Of course, no Thanksgiving meal would be complete without the main star! My Coca Cola Baked Ham is everything you could think of when it comes to ham dishes.

And then, my Trisha Yearwood Honey Baked Ham is perfection.

The brown butter honey roasted carrots look delicious! I don't need to wait for Thanksgiving to make these. I will make some pork chops tomorrow and this would be the perfect side dish to compliment it. Thanks for the idea!
