Best Rice Recipes for Thanksgiving Meals

Move over dressing; rice is the star of the side show this Thanksgiving. Click the links to get cooking.



1. Brown Rice Pilaf: This dish packs a flavor punch, and the texture is amazing; everyone will be going back for seconds and thirds.

2. Cheesy Broccoli and RiceAlways a crowd-pleaser, cheesy broccoli and rice skillet frees up precious oven space and is a tastier and healthier alternative to all of those canned-soup casseroles.

3. Brown Rice with Vegetable SauteIf you need a light side dish to pair with some of the
heavier Thanksgiving dishes, this one is a simple and delicious choice.
4. Creamy Parmesan Rice GritsWe would be amiss not to include this customer and personal favorite. If you are short on time, this recipe is your best bet.  It’s a recipe trifecta: quick, easy, and scrumptious.
5. Thanksgiving Leftovers Rice BowlIf you are struggling with how to use your leftovers, let rice give you a hand. Cook your favorite rice product (or use the pilaf or brown rice and vegetable saute from above), and top it with chopped turkey or ham. Drizzle with cranberry sauce and turkey gravy.
