Glazed Baby Carrots
This recipe doubles (and triples and quadruples) beautifully, making it a really quick and easy Thanksgiving side dish. I use baby carrots so that I don’t waste valuable time peeling and chopping more than I have to, but you can swap in sliced carrots if you prefer. With just about five minutes of hands on time, these couldn’t be quicker or easier to make!
Sweet Potato Casserole Souffle

Cheesy Squash Casserole
Made this for Thanksgiving last year and everyone loved it! I sauteed the squash and onion with parsley, basil, and butter in a large skillet. I altered the recipe a little and substituted the 1 cup mayo for 1/2 cup mayo and 1/2 cup sour cream. I also sprinkled crumbled Ritz crackers on top. I found that it needed to cook at least 45 minutes. It was very good, I will definitely be making it again!
