Thanksgiving Day Side Dishes [100+ classic recipes & ideas]

I seldom eat green beans, as I’m not really sure why as there are soooooo many EASY and delish ways to prepare.  My favorite (as an adult) are the fresh beans baked and rolled in olive oil, dusted with salt and topped with pepper bacon chunks, blue cheese crumbles and toasted-candied pecans.  I know…BOOM!  But as a kid, I fondly remember my grandma’s dish which of course are either the canned green beans simmered with bacon and onion, or the baked casserole topped with onions.  Sigh.

Well I’ve located some excellent green bean casseroles starting with the classic (like grandma’s ) HERE.

And if beans aren’t your thing, here’s a link to 100+ side dishes.  You can’t go wrong HERE.

Grandma ‘Vi’ passed along ALL her recipes.  She’ knows a thing or two about side dishes:)
