Thanksgiving Side Dishes, can seem simple, but also intimidating too. Here is my Side Dish Round up of favorite dishes! I am sharing with you 10 of my favorite dishes. You really can not go wrong with any of them:

This dish will have your guests raving and asking How, what, where has this been??? It is so easy and yet so good! Sweet pineapple cobbler bottom and butter toasty top, make this a go to side dish year after year!


Strawberry Applesauce:
This may be a surprise dish for the holiday, but not only will the kiddo's love it so will the adults as a light and tasty side dish (especially for the non cranberry salad lovers!)
