Try One Of These Turkey Day Side Dishes

Have you been making the same Thanksgiving sides for ages? Spice things up with one of these new turkey day side dish recipes!

Brussel Sprout Casserole

This casserole makes Brussel sprouts taste as you’ve never had them before! It includes bacon, onion, heavy cream, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, Monterrey jack cheese, cheddar cheese, heavy cream, and cayenne pepper in the casserole. On top, seasoned panko adds a crispy crunch to every bite!

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Soup may be an unconventional Thanksgiving side dish, but this broccoli cheese soup recipe is sure to convince you to add it to your holiday table from here on out. The recipe calls for onion, butter, flour, whole milk, half-n-half, broccoli, nutmeg, grated cheese, and chicken broth. You can leave the soup as-is with whole broccoli florets, blend half of it, or blend it all to your liking. If you blend any of the soup, you’ll likely need the chicken broth to thin the soup back out.

Creamy Cream Cheese & Bacon Corn

Frozen corn gets a major upgrade in this delicious Thanksgiving side dish recipe. Plus, it takes less than 15 minutes to make this tasty side. You’ll add heavy cream, red bell pepper, cream cheese, and bacon to 16 oz. of frozen corn. The corn, cream, and bell pepper cook in a skillet on the stove for 10 minutes until they’re all tender. Off the heat, the cream cheese melts in for a few minutes before you stir in the bacon that has been cooked ahead.

Garlicky Mashed Cauliflower

This tasty mashed cauliflower is super easy to make and makes a great addition to your table or substitute for mashed potatoes. You’ll roast a large head of cauliflower with olive oil and salt until it’s fork-tender – about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, heat olive oil or butter in a small skillet and saute onion until it’s nearly translucent, then add several minced cloves of garlic, salt, and pepper and cook for just a minute or so until the onion is done and the garlic is fragrant. Add the skillet mix and cauliflower to a food processor with more butter and half-n-half and puree it, adding cream as needed.
