Friendsgiving Side Dishes: 18 Recipes That Will Please a Crowd

I am a huge fan of side dishes — especially at Thanksgiving meals. This might be because I’m a vegetarian, but ya know… they’re still the best. Give me allllll the potatoes, Brussels sprouts, breads, and stuffing that I can possibly fit on my plate. I have a Friendsgiving to go to this week and I had no idea what to bring, which is where I feel a lot of us fall when attending one (or any type of dinner party). But don’t worry, I found all the yummiest and easiest classic Thanksgiving sides recipes so you can show up to your Friendsgiving looking like you really have your life together.

Are you attending a Friendsgiving this year? What are you bringing to share? 

  • My partner and I are actually making a gluten-free pie for a Friendsgiving this weekend, but as it’s not Keto I can’t actually eat it. Sad day, but it’s cool to be considerate of other guest’s dietary needs.
