29 Thanksgiving Casseroles You Need for Dinner

Casseroles are a necessity on the Thanksgiving Table. Whether you’re preparing for your own family or for extended family, these are some thanksgiving casseroles that you need to make.

Hey, friends!

Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving! That’s what everything’s about it seems!

I personally love it though. This is definitely my favorite time of the year, even though I always manage to gain a few pounds! What? Delicious desserts are my kryptonite.

Thanksgiving is always a crazy time at our house! I come from a big family, and they all have kids now, so when we try to all get together, it calls for a mile-long grocery list. But it’s a fun time! Even though we have to all be scattered around the house because that’s the only way everyone will have seating.

Anyways! As I’m preparing for our big Thanksgiving dinner, I started thinking about what the staples of Thanksgiving are. Obviously we have turkey (which our family also makes a ham, because not everyone likes turkey here). Obviously we have cranberry sauce. Obviously we have dressing/stuffing.

But then I realized another essential staple for the thanksgiving table.


People make fun of casseroles, but honestly there’s nothing I like more than a well-cooked, creamy and crusty casserole. If you’re like me, then you’re in luck!

These are some of my favorite casseroles I’ve found over the last couple of months!
