Do you really like Green Bean Casserole or like me do you just feel obligated to put it onto the Thanksgiving table year after year? Personally, I am not a fan, yet somehow I feel obligated to make it every Thanksgiving. Each year as I scrape heaps of leftover into the trash can, I vow to never make it again. But still I do. I want this year to be different, so I have searched for some show stopping side dishes and created a collection of 12 Great Thanksgiving Side Dishes.
While there’s no getting away from serving the usual mashed potatoes and stuffing, slathered in turkey gravy, I will introduce my friends and family to a couple of new Thanksgiving side dishes. Perhaps, it will be roasted asparagus or some Very Corny Spoon Bread like the spoon bread my Mother used to make. Any one of the recipes in my 12 Great Thanksgiving Side Dishes collection would be a wonderful addition to my family’s Thanksgiving feast.
When I was searching for recipes to add to my collection, I found myself drawn to the ones that take advantage of seasonal treasures like butternut squash, acorn squash, and sweet potatoes. There is one unexpected addition, however. I simply had to include a slow cooker Mac and Cheese recipe. I love the idea of utilizing my CrockPot to free up oven space for the turkey and roasted side dishes.
I’m really looking forward to mixing things up a bit this Thanksgiving, and am crossing my fingers that I don’t hear anyone ask “Where’s the Green Bean Casserole?” Please wish me luck!
