Frequently Asked Questions About Thanksgiving Side Dishes

What are the two most popular Thanksgiving side dishes?

I did an unofficial poll from a bunch of foodies on what their favorite side dishes were and the top two were mashed potatoes (by a long shot) and stuffing. No surprise there!

How many side dishes should you have for Thanksgiving?

I like to have at least 3 side dishes (mashed potatoes, stuffing, etc.) and two vegetable dishes. We usually have more than that but that would be the minimum for a crowd. Don’t forget dessert too.

What can I do with Thanksgiving leftovers?

There is so much you can do with the leftovers! First, be sure to send your guests home with a big plate. Then use the rest to make sandwiches the next few days, or have Thanksgiving dinner for several nights. I like to put most of it in to smaller serving sizes and freeze them. One night when you don’t want to cook, just pull it out, defrost it and dinner is ready!
