Growing up our Thanksgiving side dishes were always the same…
– mashed potatoes
– buttered corn
– green bean casserole (yes with that canned cream of mushroom soup *gag*)
– boiled Brussels sprouts that were bathed in enough butter that made Paula Deen grin from ear to ear
– boiled broccoli and cauliflower, mixed and again more butter
– and Dad’s stuffing
every Christmas and Thanksgiving.. the same… for years…. and years. And yes when yours truly started cooking dinner I kept it the same sides though no canned cream of mushroom stuff and no boiled veggies. EVER!
However I’m kinda tired of the same ol’ same ol. What about you? So this year if you’re looking to mix things up, try some of these side dish recipes! What about you? Yes I know there’s something to be said about tradition and you can still serve your usual but why not include a new one?
