These Simple Thanksgiving Side Dishes Are Light on Prepwork, Big on Flavor

November 12, 2014 6:37 pm

Anyone who has ever hosted Thanksgiving will tell you that the less prep work a dish requires, the better it is for the meal. With time- and labor-intensive dishes like the turkey to worry about, it’s best to keep your sides simple. Here are a few delicious Thanksgiving side dishes that minimize your workload without sacrificing flavor.

Maple-Whipped Sweet Potatoes [delish.com]
Adding maple syrup makes just about any dish taste more extravagant, which is exactly why these sweet potatoes are perfect for your Thanksgiving feast. By using only five common ingredients and a trip through the food processor, you can create this dish without much effort at all.

Green Bean Casserole [marthastewart.com]
This old recipe may be a classic, but it’s still a favorite among many families. The creamy green bean base gets a savory crunch from the fried shallots on top, making this one of the most flavorful dishes on your dinner table.

Butternut Squash Bread Pudding [realsimple.com]
Adding butternut squash to any dish just makes it taste like fall, and this warm bread pudding is a perfect example. It includes fresh sage and Gruyere cheese for added flavor, and using fresh French bread gives it an elegant feel. It’s also a much simpler alternative to the usual stuffing, which makes it even more appealing.
