Other Thanksgiving Dinner Ideas
When it comes to a Thanksgiving dinner, you aren't bound by tradition! You can serve whatever you want for dinner on this holiday, even if it's a bit uncommon! Typically, you'll see mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, and cranberry served at a Thanksgiving dinner. If none of these are up your alley, try serving baked potatoes, green bean casserole, pumpkin mac and cheese, or anything else you can think of!
An important thing to do is to make sure all of your side dishes work well together. If you serve a lot of sides that are vastly different from one another, they may not work well together. It's also important to make sure you don't overwhelm your guests with too many choices! Try to limit the number of sides on offer to four or five, unless you have an especially large party.
You can also blend traditional and unique side dishes together. Maybe you'll choose to serve mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and corn soufflé. If you have kids, offer a couple of side dishes that they'll enjoy, like mac and cheese. Of course, make sure to include a couple of the bread recipes we listed above for the perfect Thanksgiving dinner!
