Top 5 Sides

I love Thanksgiving.

It’s great to get together with family and friends and share a meal.

That’s what this post is all about…

The meal.

Here are my top 5 sides from the typical Thanksgiving feast.

 

 

 

 

 

5. Pillsbury Crescent Roles

They are simple yet critical to the success of any Thanksgiving meal. Light and fluffy they go down, heavy and buttery they sit in your stomach.

 

 

 

 

 

4. Homemade Cranberry Sauce

The picture above is the opposite of what we’re looking for. We want homemade. That does not mean you open the can at home. Cranberry sauce provides a wonderful complimentary flavor to turkey.

 

 

 

 

 

3. Mashed Potatoes & Gravy

Seriously… Do I even need to explain this one. If I wasn’t trying to be in better shape this would be number one on my list.

 

 

 

 

 

2. Stuffing / Dressing

I’ve come along way on this one. I used to skip it every time, now it’s a must have. For the record, I believe it tastes better when it NOT cooked in the bird.

 

 

 

 

 

1. My Mom’s Strawberry Jello

Hard to describe this one other than to say my mom makes it and it will always hold a special place in my heart and at my Thanksgiving table.

That’s my list… What about yours?

What did I miss?

Green bean casserole? Sweet potatoes?

  1. I’m extremely disappointed that there are no sweet potato’s or yams on this list.
    Bread from a can over marshmallowey covered goodness?!? That’s just wrong AndyJonesLive.

  2. I consider mashed potatoes and gravy separate sides. So there’s two. Mom’s jello salad (let’s just say it’s her recipe, for the record. Cuz yours truly makes it a time or ten) I agree with the Pillsbury Rolls for my #4. I don’t understand why anybody feels the need to bring the kind that you can’t get the butter to melt on. And #5 is corn. When you mix it with the potatoes and gravy it’s so perky…
