11 Cheesy Dishes, Casseroles, and Comfort Food Side Dish Recipes for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving definitely brings out the BEST comfort food! Try any one of these rich, warm side dish recipes to enjoy with your friends and family on turkey day!

Today is election day for us in the United States, so naturally, a lot of us are going to need some comforting tonight (personally, I feel like I've needed comforting for the entirety of this election season!) 

But after tomorrow when this whirlwind of politics begins to slow down and the dust starts to settle, we can all get back to focusing on what really matters (just kidding....maybe) which are cheesy dishes, casseroles, and comfort food recipes! 

Below you'll find a collection of personally curated recipes that get my vote for "favorite comfort food" recipe candidates!
