Thanksgiving Day dinner is quite expensive, even for a small family. This meal often requires many items that are not typically in your pantry at home. A few dishes are very inexpensive and add a bit of variety to the meal. Each dish below is also full of flavor, and only has a few ingredients.
Below check out my collection of Thanksgiving dishes from Foodie.com.

Corn pudding really is not a pudding. It is more like a casserole. All you need for this is corn muffin mix, a can of sweet corn, a can of creamed corn, a touch of butter, eggs, sour cream, cinnamon and a pinch of black pepper. It is really quite simple. When it is done, serve it with warm maple syrup on the side for extra sweetness.
Loaded Mashed Potatoes
Traditional mashed potatoes get boring. Kick them up a little bit by adding in crushed French fried onions, bacon, shredded cheese and some snipped green onions. This kicks up the flavor and tastes great when you add the gravy on top. To make the mashed potatoes creamier, add a heaping tablespoon or two of sour cream just before serving.
Wild Rice with Mushrooms
Bring something new to the Thanksgiving dinner table. Many families forget about rice being a staple food. Wild rice has a different texture and flavor. Adding mushrooms to it along with some fresh garlic and parsley makes a lovely, earthy tasting dish that fits the occasion well.
Quite different is a big bowl of sautéed vegetables. You will want to use late harvest vegetables such as zucchini, bell peppers, carrots, button mushrooms and onions. Add just a touch of olive oil to the pan and season the vegetables with salt, pepper and fresh garlic. That is all they need to be delicious. Do not cook them too long; you want them to still have a little crunch and texture.
