5 Thanksgiving Sides So Easy, Anyone in WA, OR, & CA Can Make It!
I went into panic mode over the weekend. My wife FINALLY told me of our Thanksgiving plans. I wasn't too surprised by the invite from my in-laws to join them and other family friends, but the real kick in the crackers was that I was responsible for making the side dishes!
When she told me this, I was like no problem; I'll grab a package of Idahoan instant potatoes, a box of SpongeBob mac and cheese, maybe some stovetop stuffing; I'm all good! Of course, my family would make me work on a day off. Nope, the family is working hard for a great holiday dinner, so I need to do the same. Not to mention, my mother-in-law can tell if it's from a box (she's that good).
Thank goodness for people with more imagination and better culinary skills than mine for these 5 Easy Holiday Side Dishes!
5 Easy Holiday Side Dishes!
Broccoli & Cheese Casserole
The nice part with this is if you don't like broccoli, it's green, so you can easily pick it out. But who doesn't love cheese and crackers?
Slow-Cooked Scalloped Potatoes
Sure, they have "mashed potatoes" taken care of, but they never said I couldn't bring scalloped potatoes. Yes, these can come from a box as well, but with this recipe being so easy, why not give it a try?
These two words should not go together, but they actually do. I'm not the biggest fan of corn, but this was easy to make, so I gave it a shot!
Maple Bacon Brussel Sprouts
My wife loves Brussels sprouts; I like bacon, so why not? Super easy, ultimate taste!
Mashed Potato Pancakes
Is it a potato? Is it a pancake? Is it a side dish or a snack? Who cares? It's easy, cheesy, and good!
