Does your family cook the same old recipes for Thanksgiving side dishes year after year? Sides such as sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, and pumpkin pie are generally eaten out of tradition, not enjoyment. If you’ve grown tired of these overused sides and think it’s time to freshen things up, we’ve got lots of delicious recipes for you to try this year. Read on to discover tasty dishes that your family will actually be excited to eat this year at Thanksgiving.
Try These Instead of Sweet Potato Casserole
Sweet potato casserole can be heavy and full of sugar. If you’re not a fan, try these recipes instead. Potato and Leek Gratin is a savory alternative. This gratin contains two types of flavorful cheeses, Parmesan and Gruyere, along with many other yummy ingredients. If you’re seeking a lighter option, try this Buttery Roasted Cauliflower recipe. With tons of flavor, it’s a perfect nutritious side dish for your Thanksgiving table.
Update Your Green Bean Casserole
Replace the old stand by green bean casserole with a recipe that has significantly less sodium and fat in it. Green Beans with Bacon and Toasted Pecans is the way to go. It’s more nutritious than a casserole but still has great flavor. Plus, it has bacon in it, and what recipe could go wrong with that? Another mouthwatering choice is Broccoli with Cheese Sauce. The cheese sauce takes a few minutes to make and then all you have to do is pour it over your broccoli. Once you swap to these sides, you’ll never want to go back.

Swap Pumpkin Pie for These Options
Pumpkin pie is loved by some people and hated by others. If your family falls into the second category, try these desserts instead. Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream can be a lighter, more appetizing option for people that love the taste, but not the heaviness that comes with pie. If you’re a chocolate fan, you’ll fall in love and never look back with this Chocolate Walnut Tart recipe.
