oh wow do you have me wanting to get something to eat now! lol One of my faves of all times is this sweet potato recipe that has this candied topping that we all have every year as it's from a local dinner theatre and it's one of the first sides to go! We make it every year and it's so good.

I am always looking for new sides for any holiday meal. Sides can really jazz up a table and bring a fun new life to your meal plan! You have some great ones listed here, now I just have to narrow it down!

You had me at maple bacon biscuits! Loved this list of side dishes. My MIL does Thanksgiving so I'll have to save this for when I get to cook.
