Thanksgiving Side Dish Roundup | Indianapolis Food Blogger

Thanksgiving is a few weeks away. Are you ready? Do you have a game plan? If not, I’m here to help. 

I’ve got a list of sides dishes what will be the best accompanists to your main course- Whether it be turkey, chicken, or a meatless item. 

Roasted  Clementine & Cherry Tomato Crostini– Snacks before the real meal awaits are needed. Chips are cool, but crostini’s are awesome. 

Hearty Spinach Salad- A bountiful salad has its rightful spot at the Thanksgiving Table, don’t just go with iceberg lettuce and some croutons, make it memorable with a Spinach, Pear Pomegranate Salad, your guests will thank you. 

Roasted Fingerling Potatoes– An alternative to traditional mashed potatoes. Spice them up with Garlic, Cumin, and Paprika, and these potatoes will be a super hit. 

Brussels Sprouts- We all need something green on our plates. (this is a rule at my house) Roasted Brussels Sprouts do just that, and they’re really yummy. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. 

Smoky Baked Macaroni & Cheese– Cheese + Noodles = Happiness. How could you not have this on your table? It’ll bridge the gap. End (family) wars.  Pretty much make you happy and ethereal. 

Kicked Up Table Bread– This bread is so easy, a little kid (with help) can prepare it. Allow little Johnny or Ashley to help you in the kitchen and contribute this dish.

Flaky Biscuits- For those of you that like your bread a little personal. Make these, have tons of butter and apple preserves on hand. 

Roasted Carrot Pie- A change up from the standard Pumpkin Pie. Sweet and Buttery, and perfect for Fall.

Mini Peach Tarts- Frozen Peaches allow for this to happen in the middle of November. Make a sweet dessert that folks won’t want to share. 

Cranberry Orange Punch- Served spiked or without, its a festive drink for the day.

There ya have it. A nice round up to help you finalize your Thanksgiving festivities. I hope your day is filled with good eats, laughter and love. If your table is filled with those things, you definitely have something to be thankful for. 


Happy eating and thank you for reading.
