We are Italian and we always have stuffed shell. Not a normal side dish for most thanksgiving dinners but it’s something we count on. Lol

DH’s family is eastern european and there’s lots of different sides like hulupski and cabbage and perogis.

My family is very southern so there’s lots of butter beans, fried okra, biscuits…

I think as long as you have the essential (turkey, stuffing and pecan pie) it’s all good.

We are Russian and the only typical American food we have for Thanksgiving is the turkey with cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes.  Everything else is either Russian food or non traditional American foods.

My family is German-Irish, but we don’t really incorporate traditional sides from either culture. We have the American staples–mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberries, green bean casserole, rolls, etc. There have been a few years where my Gran has made sauerkraut (yuck, man), but for the most part, we have the same thing every year. 

DH’s stepdad is part Romanian and incorporates some traditional stuff in their Thanksgiving meal, which is awesome. I like having more than just “regular” American foods.

My family is Mexican and we do two meals. an all American Thanksgiving meal with classic sides and my grandma also makes tamales or birria (BBQ) from a turkey. We get the best of both worlds!
