Tips for quick and easy Thanksgiving side dishes

  • Buy pre-cut veggies. Pre-chopped butternut squash, as well as halved Brussels sprouts, ensure quick preparation and less mess on your kitchen counter!
  • Make your stuffing in advance by sauteing onions and celery and any other ingredients the night before. Allow cooling down and keep them in plastic bags. Then, on Thursday morning, reheat the vegetables to make the Thanksgiving stuffing.
  • Clean and prep the veggies to be used in casseroles or on their own the day before. Chop, slice or dice them and store in plastic sealable bags in the refrigerator. You can also blanch them the day before; this works well for green beans and potatoes.
  • Some casserole-type Thanksgiving side dishes such as sweet potato gratins can be assembled the day before baking.
  • Cranberry sauce can be made ahead of time. Since it contains a lot of sugar, it’s essentially a quick jam that can be frozen or kept in the refrigerator for a while. If frozen, just thaw it in the fridge overnight.
  • You don’t have to make all your Thanksgiving sides yourself. Picking up a couple of high-quality side dishes from the grocery store (hello Whole Foods and Fresh Market!) is a good idea because it gave you fewer things to juggle with.
