Every week we pull together some great Canadian recipes from Canadian food bloggers around the web featuring one main ingredient or dish. This week, we brought together 22 recipes for Thanksgiving Side Dishes that will make you shine.

Have you ever been on transit on Thanksgiving Day? It's the best! Almost everyone is carrying a delicious smelling tray and smiles are exchanged everywhere you look.

Most of the time, those that take the bus or the train to get to their Thanksgiving dinner tend to be carrying a side dish or a dessert, as the responsibility of the main usually lays on the host. This being the case, it is salads, potatoes, sauces, buns, and fall-veggies that fill the atmosphere with their scents and those of sage, cinnamon, allspice, oregano... yum!

If you see yourself in that picture and still have no idea what you're going to bring to the most important meal of the year, stress no more! We are here to rescue you with 22 Thanksgiving Side Dishes that might steal the show away from the turkey!*

*Just kidding, although these sides are pretty delicious.
