For some, Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without having a bird as the guest of honour.
For others, it’s everything else that fills the plate; your aunt’s famous stuffing, homemade cranberries or your mom’s casserole that make the meal. Bumping elbows, it’s not tough to see, for our herbivore guests, the sides become the main. However, the gravy might be out, the stuffing perhaps filled that bird or decadence won with the addition creams and cheese, making even the sides slim pickings.
Since Holidays are about the company, these few tweaks on some delicious classics are sure to be enjoyed by the entire table. Be thankful, celebrate the season… and your guests. (& I’m sure they will thank you too.)
I’ve put together a few quick and easy side dishes for Thanksgiving, and beyond. Simple and fast to prepare, these sides can easily be doubled or made ahead of time and just reheated, allowing more time for company…. and dessert.
