I absolutely Love Turkey but I also enjoy the many Thanksgiving side dishes. Most of us have tried Candied Sweet Potatoes, Sweet Potato Casserole, Green Bean Casserole, Mashed Potatoes, Stuffing, Roasted Butternut Squash, various ways to make our Turkey and Gravy and other somewhat traditional side dish recipes for Thanksgiving. For my family’s Thanksgiving we always try to have a few unusual side dishes thanks to my children who love to try new recipes. Here are some different sides that you can be proud to serve. If you try any, please let us know what you and your guests thought ~ we always love to hear from you ~ come over to facebook and let us know.
We always have Cornbread Stuffing at Thanksgiving. One of my son’s favorite dishes over the holiday, and it’s yummy even for breakfast the following morning. Here is a twist on that from A Spicy Perspective ~ Cornbread Stuffing Muffins

My son made this for us 2 years ago for Thanksgiving. A bit of work, with lots of flour in the kitchen, but boy was it delicious. Skinny Forks has a Simple Pumpkin Gnocchi Recipe to try that just gives you the basics. You can then feel free to make whatever sauce suits your fancy.
The pumpkin Gnocchi that we enjoyed had a brown butter sage sauce on it that was truly delicious. Rachael Ray has a Pumpkin Gnocchi Recipe with a brown butter sage sauce that you just might want to try to wow your guests!
We always try to have a soup on Thanksgiving and make it fun each year to try something new. This soup from Cookie and Kate looks absolutely Yummy ~ I love soup and I love Butternut Squash, what could be better? Roasted Butternut Squash Soup
Spinach Gratin from Ina Garten has been a staple for us as one of our Thanksgiving Side Dishes,. It’s one that is a must for us each year.
My family loves the many different Thanksgiving Side Dishes, but this one is a family favorite. My daughter made it for me and I enjoyed it so much I made it a few months after the holiday. Why wait a year for something so delicious? I bake the 2 loaves and freeze one for when I have company.
