A Guide To The Best Thanksgiving Side Dishes

Holiday dinners for the family, whether you are cooking for a few or a large crowd can be challenging. That’s where your barbecue comes in. Anything you can imagine cooking in the kitchen can easily be prepared on a Napoleon Grill. You’ve got your main dish figured out. A roast, ham, or turkey, that’s no problem, but what are you going to serve with it? The following guide to the best (and unique) Thanksgiving side dishes will make your next holiday meal one that the family will be talking about for years to come.


Gotta Have Potatoes

Potatoes are so versatile. They can be mashed, fried, crispy, fluffy, they can even be a liquid! Potatoes belong on every holiday table no matter what. With these delicious recipes, you may even want to have more than one potato dish on your Thanksgiving table. Potatoes are easy to make on the grill. Many times they can just be seasoned and set on the grill to slowly cook while the main dish is barbecuing.


Veggies Are A Must

Potatoes are great, I think we may have mentioned this, but you should probably include some vegetables in your meal too. For balance and all that, you know? Actually, picky eaters beware, these grilled veggie recipes will rock your socks and make you love more than just meat and potatoes.


And Now For Something Completely Different

You don’t have to serve traditional fare with your Thanksgiving dinner. Many people have something unique to the traditions of their own family with their meals. I loved my family’s holiday meals. Along with the turkey or ham, there would be the biggest, most delicious tray of macaroni and cheese, fresh from the oven with a crisp top and enough cheese sauce that it was basically a soup. What different things go on your holiday table that isn’t the usual fare?


Set Your Meal Off By Accessorizing

Use your favorite barbecue accessories to help you create the best meal. You can use the Napoleon Rotisserie Grill Basket to create the most incredible roasted veggies and potatoes. Perfectly cooked with just that hint of char, this basket is one of the easiest ways to use your grill for making a side dish.

Whether you eat traditional foods, mix it up, or make something that only your family does, Thanksgiving – no, the holidays are a time for enjoying good food and companionship with your friends and family.
