From rich sweet potatoes to crisp green bean casserole, vibrant cranberry sauce to fluffy crescent rolls, Thanksgiving sides can be just as tasty as the main dish. We have more than 25 recipes for you to choose from for your big turkey dinner.

Turkey usually gets all the praise during Thanksgiving dinner, and rightly so. But this post is dedicated to all of those luscious Thanksgiving sides! Warm, buttery rolls, fluffy mashed potatoes, savory stuffing, fruity and flavorful salad. Thanksgiving dinner wouldn’t be the same without any of these must-have sides. Whether you prefer to keep it classic or want to branch out with a new recipe or two, pull out the decorative pumpkins and your best dinnerware. We have gathered all of our family’s favorite Thanksgiving recipes that we can’t wait to share with you!

Thanksgiving Side Dishes: Potatoes

Nothing goes better with a slice or two of succulent turkey and gravy than fluffy, buttery mashed potatoes. Or nutty, rich sweet potato casserole. But have you ever considered branching out with a little cheese and bacon? Or using the Instant Pot to bake your potatoes? There are so many potato options to add to your holiday table, why not try them all?

Perfect Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes can be tricky. They can easily get too thin or too whipped, too dense, or not dense enough. It really depends on your taste! In our opinion, our Mom makes the best-mashed potatoes. They are thick, yet smooth, dense, and fluffy, but not dry. Always perfect every time, and this is her mashed potatoes recipe.

Turkey Gravy

This isn’t a potato recipe, but mashed potatoes aren’t complete at Thanksgiving dinner without the turkey gravy. Our mother is the best cook we know. Everything she makes is perfection. But the thing she is most famous for is her turkey gravy. Anyone who has shared her table over the years asks for this turkey gravy recipe. This is her step-by-step recipe for how she creates this savory, creamy gravy. It’s delicious over just about anything!

Sweet Potato Casserole

This Sweet Potato Casserole recipe is hands down the best recipe for sweet potato casserole I’ve ever tasted, and we’ve had many many recipes pass over our Thanksgiving table throughout the years. Tender sweet potatoes whipped to perfection and topped with a streusel topping (crumble topping) that makes the whole dish taste like it should be on the dessert table. It’s versatile enough that you can add or take away topping ingredients depending on your guest’s tastes.

Thanksgiving Side Dishes: Stuffing

Traditional stuffing is made of cubes of bread and herbs stuffed inside the turkey while cooking. Many opt to bake the stuffing outside the bird and serve it as a side dish. There are a ton of variations to this popular side dish. Using different ingredients like cranberries, bacon, cornbread or sausage will make all kinds of savory stuffings perfect for Thanksgiving dinner.

Thanksgiving Stuffing with Bacon

Bacon in stuffing? Yes! It gives the stuffing so much flavor! You have to put this Bacon Stuffing on your Thanksgiving menu this year. It is unbelievably good! Forget about the stuff you buy in the box – this should be a new holiday tradition. I have used sausage in dressings and stuffings before but this is the first time I’ve tried bacon. I’ll never go back!

Thanksgiving Side Dishes: Vegetables

Ordinary steamed or roasted vegetables get all dressed up for the big Thanksgiving meal. Parsnips and carrots, lemony garlic Brussels sprouts, and of course the classic green bean casserole look and tastes extra special when you take time to add a couple of new or unique ingredients. Even your pickiest eaters will gobble these vegetable sides up!

Roasted Carrots and Parsnips

Roasted Carrots and Parsnips are a colorful, healthy, and delicious side dish for Thanksgiving. Vegetables are the part of the meal that add color, texture, and tons of vibrant flavor. Parsnips are root vegetables similar to carrots, but they are sweeter and juicier. They complement the carrots beautifully and are a delicious addition to holiday meals.

Green Bean Casserole

But this green bean casserole recipe is made with FRESH green beans and a creamy mushroom sauce. Trust me, it’ll be a holiday side dish your guests rave about!

Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts

Before I got an air fryer, I didn’t love making Brussels Sprouts. Sometimes I would cook Brussels Sprouts in the oven, or sometimes I would boil them, but they just never wowed me. Now that I know how to air fry them, I make them all the time! This air fryer recipe produces crispy Brussels Sprouts with tender insides. They make a great veggie side dish and don’t take up oven space.

Thanksgiving Side Dishes: Salads

Save room on your plate for some sweet and savory salads! Salad dishes are a terrific way to add vibrant color to the meal, along with seasonal fruits, vegetables and other ingredients. Our family loves sweet Jell-O salads, crisp green salads, and fruit salads. Plus these light and fragrant salads balance out heavier, richer foods like stuffing, gravy and potatoes. Try one or two of these recipes and enjoy!

Waldorf Salad

The classic Waldorf salad is truly the perfect side dish because most of the ingredients you usually have on hand. It’s light, refreshing, crispy, and satisfying. This recipe makes a huge salad and it serves 12-16 people depending on serving sizes. It is a great addition at Thanksgiving and Christmas because it’s colorful and light, a perfect complement to turkey or ham dinners.

I fully acknowledge that the combination may seem pretty strange, but once you try it, you’ll be hooked. The pretzel crust adds a salty crunch to the sweet cream cheese filling and fruity Jello top layer. We top it all with fresh strawberries when they’re in season, but frozen fruit will work as well.

Blueberry Jell-O Salad

This Blueberry Jello Salad recipe is the perfect recipe to branch out from the traditional, plain Jello salad. The rich, fresh flavors make it the perfect side dish for Thanksgiving. We use pineapple because it gives the jello layer more fruity texture. But if you don’t like the thicker texture, just omit the pineapple and it is still delicious!

Thanksgiving Side Dishes: Breads and Rolls

Make sure to bake extra, because homemade rolls make for the absolute best leftover turkey sandwiches. And don’t forget the cranberry sauce!
