What are the most important side dishes for a Thanksgiving meal?

I have a very small kitchen, but I want to make Thanksgiving dinner this year, for the first time. Which side dishes should I make? There will be 3 adults and 2 kids. Thanks!

    the things your family likes the most.

    Definitely turkey or ham
    green beans
    potatos of some sort

    I have a small kitchen too so I am throwing carrots, celery, and potatos in the bag with my turkey breast.

    I am going to be making my cream corn and green beans the day before so all I have to do it put it in the microwave!!

    1. Mashed Potatoes
    2. Broccoli/cheese casserole
    3. Stuffing/dressing
    4. Turkey!

    Those are my favorites! I’d also include rolls and cranberry sauce – both cheap and easy!

    I’d say stuffing, green beans, vegatables (steamed), fruit, sometimes even rice. Use your imagination.

    Mashed potatoes are always good… Green bean casserole is quick and you can even microwave it until really hot in the dish. Put the fried onions on top and put in the hot oven for like 5 minutes. then they think you have cooked everything from scratch. We always make a veggie/relish tray and deviled eggs. They are filling and you can make them up and put them in the fridge up to a day in advance. Corn is always good with the kids. Cranberry sauce. Turkey and Dressing and you are done. You can always make broccoli too for some color. Make sure you have a little cheese sauce for the broccolli if the kids are picky eaters…Happy Thanksgiving!!

    The turkey ..of course
    mashed potatoes w/ turkey gravy
    winter squash…boiled and lots of butter
    baby peas
    home made rolls
    cranberry sauce
    olives and pickles
    jell-o salad
    pumpkin pie

    EDIT: I would go with a 14 to 18 lb so to have lots of leftover turkey for sandwiches, soup, casserole, etc. etc.

    Everyone loves sweet potatoe casserole (sweet potatoes with browned marshmallows on top), mashed potatoes, ham, gravy, stuffing, tons of stuff you could also make some cranberries but they arent the tastiest things

  27. purplepassion said:


    Mashed Potatoes w/ Gravy
    Sweet peas or asparagus
    Stuffing ( I use stove top these days)

    Other stuff

    Cranberry Sauce
    Parkhouse Dinner Rolls
    Vanilla Ice cream would be good for the kids, in case the dessert you are planning is too grown up/rich for them.
