I wanted to put this little list together for you guys in case anyone needed any last minute ideas for your Thanksgiving meal! I know meal planning/prepping for the holidays can get a little stressful, so I hope these delicious dishes can help you out! Pinterest is my go-to for finding yummy recipes and these are my top 5 dishes that I have actually made and love! xoxo, Carrie
*JUST CLICK ON THE SIDE DISH NAME TO LINK TO THE RECIPE
1. SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE from Chef in Training.
This is the most pinned side dish on my list and for good reason! So yummy! (I apologize in advance for all the times I use the word “yummy” in this post!) Sweet potato casserole is a definite must have on my Thanksgiving menu and this one is a crowd pleaser with over 180,000 pins and a 5 star review.
2. TWICE BAKED POTATO CASSEROLE from Ree Drummond (a.k.a. The Pioneer Woman).
This is the one that Josh asks me to make all the time… he LOVES it! Let me just warn you… you better be ready to eat because this should honestly be a meal in itself. ALSO, if you are trying to be healthy, then just skip on down to the next dish! 🤣😂 This casserole includes a pound of bacon and 4 sticks of butter. 😬🙈 It has a 4.5 star review and has been pinned over 4,000 times, so we aren’t the only ones who love it!
3. SLOW COOKER BROWN BUTTER GLAZED CARROTS from The Food Charlatan.
I knew I wanted to make carrots one year and threw these together without much thought. They turned out to be SO yummy much to my surprise! Not that I didn’t think they would be good (I mean it had over 32,000 pins)…. just didn’t realize they would be THIS good!
4. DUTCH OVEN ARTISAN BREAD from Larissa Another Day.
This is the star of the show in my opinion. Again… SO yummy! It looks like you’ve put in way more effort than you actually did, and is literally the best homemade bread ever! The perfect crunchy outside and soft in the middle. Pinned over 1,000 times, but really that number should be a million!
5. SQUASH CASSEROLE from Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood.
I had never made squash casserole until last year. I stumbled across this recipe and noticed that it had over 8,000 pins, so I thought I’d give it a try. Super easy to make and surprisingly so yummy!
