If you are looking for some Thanksgiving side dish ideas, you are not alone. I am always looking to change up at least one recipe each year. Some of the old favorites are fun but there are so many great new ways to serve up side dishes.
Today we are sharing 20 tasty Thanksgiving side dishes for your menu planning. Thanksgiving doesn't have to be hard, it should be all about enjoying the time with friends and family.
We are all about easy recipes that save you time. So today we have a few great ideas for your Thanksgiving dinner.
Hi Friends! Every Thanksgiving, I think back to the many dinners we celebrated in the past. My first Thanksgiving I made a very straight menu, roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole (the canned soup kind) cornbread stuffing and gravy.
That was a long time ago and while it came out just fine, I have really enjoyed adding other side dishes and taking those foods up a notch. I find it not only makes the menu more interesting, I find it becomes more memorable too.
My family members all have their favorites and they let me know which dishes they loved. I will also say that I have found it better to ask your family what their past favorites are before you make your menu plan. One year I did not serve a green bean casserole and my daughter was so disappointed! We had it on the menu every year after that, even if it was a different recipe.
So in the spirit of changing things up for great celebrations, I gathered some of these memorable recipes from my blogger friends so that you have some new recipes to consider from when planning your Thanksgiving Day menu.
I hope you enjoy these recipe ideas from some blogger friends.

Wow, they are memorable! I like how they're old classics but with new spins.
This is one of the rare years with no cooking for us. We're doing apps, though!
That sounds fun Tamara! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
