Do you have an empty-handed crowd showing up at your doorstep for Thanksgiving dinner? Or maybe you have a crazy week before Thanksgiving and need a quick side dish to make the morning of? Whatever your reason for needing a quick side dish (and we all have them!), here’s a few simple but delicious ones you can make quickly and with few ingredients:

Corn Casserole

2 cans whole kernel corn

2 cans sweet cream-style corn

1 stick butter, melted

2 eggs

1 cup sour cream

1 box Jiffy corn muffin mix

Mix all ingredients and put in a greased casserole dish. Bake at 325 for 1 hour and 15 minutes.


Green Bean Bundles

2 cans green beans

1 package bacon

French dressing



Microwave the bacon for 1 minute and then cut each piece in half, creating shorter pieces of bacon. Wrap 8-10 green beans in a piece of bacon, secure with a toothpick and pour 1 teaspoon of French dressing on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.


Squash Casserole

3 cups sliced yellow squash or 2 packages frozen squash

½ cup butter

½ cup chopped onions

½ cup chopped bell peppers

1 cup mayonnaise

½ cup sharp grated cheese

1 egg

1 teaspoon sugar

1 cup bread crumbs


Cook squash in salted water until tender. Saute onion and pepper in butter. Add squash, mayonnaise and cheese. Whip 1 egg and add sugar. Add to squash mix. Pour into greased casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Top with bread crumbs.
