Quick Thanksgiving Side Dishes

Quick Thanksgiving Side Dishes

Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and we're all busily planning our menus. This is actually our first year having our own meal at home, as a family of four. I'm not a huge fan of the more traditional sides (pretty much any side that can be deemed a "casserole"). There are a few staples like mashed fauxtatoes, stuffing/dressing, and some veg which I will likely keep on my menu this year. However, my husband and I disagree on cranberries. He loves them, and I have never been a fan of traditional cranberry jelly. So, I made him a deal - I told him I would make the cranberries he loves, but not from a can.

Growing up, we had pretty traditional Southern sides like green beans with bacon, collard greens, and mac and cheese. If I can be really honest, they aren't exactly my favorites. Don't get me wrong, I am a veggie gal unlike no other, but I dislike mushy vegetables. Plus, who wants to spend literally hours cooking a green bean? Not this girl.

So, I give you delicious Thanksgiving sides in 30 minutes or less.
