Easy & Quick Side Dishes For Thanksgiving The Coastal Confidence Aubrey YandowI’ve never felt so unprepared for Thanksgiving! Every year the holiday is hosted by my parents. But, this year Matt is throwing a huge Friendsgiving the day before Thanksgiving, Matt is great at hosting – and not so great at prep work.

When it comes to making sure food and drinks are flowing – this little lady better get cooking! Whether you’re hosting a few friends or a hangry family, I’m sharing 3 Thanksgiving side dishes ready in under 30 minutes with GE Profile built-in microwave!

Since our kitchen renovation was completed in May, our microwave is our most used GE Appliance. When Matt and I designed our kitchen it was important for us to have a built-in microwave. As you may have noticed on Instagram stories, I like to keep my countertops clear. Building the microwave into our island offers a clean look and gives guests extra space to gather around. While shopping for microwaves, I quickly learned GE Appliances offered a wide range of built-in options, in a variety of sizes. As seen here. For our home, we chose this model. I love the large cooking capacity it offers, which is great while hosting during the holidays. Plus, the microwave perfectly matches our GE Profile Slide-In Electric Range! 

With Matt’s Friendsgiving barely a week away, I’m in the kitchen test cooking a few recipes. The recipes I chose are quick, easy and efficient for me to make during the party. Plus, who doesn’t love a good classic side dish!
