Five Thanksgiving Sides in One Sheet Pan

  • Level: Intermediate
  • Yield: 4 to 6 servings
  • Total: 1 hr 30 min
  • Active: 1 hr



Two 7.5-ounce tubes refrigerated mini biscuits, such as Pillsbury Junior's

Cranberry Sauce:

12 ounces frozen cranberries

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup orange juice

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 tablespoon turbinado sugar

Sweet Potato Casserole:

1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped (about 2 medium)

1/4 cup whole milk

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup mini marshmallows

Green Bean Casserole:

3 tablespoons olive oil

5 ounces sliced cremini mushrooms

Quarter small onion, chopped

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/2 cup heavy cream

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

12 ounces frozen, cut green beans

1/3 cup crispy fried onions, such as French's

Scalloped Potatoes:

3/4 pound Yukon gold potatoes (about 3 medium)

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

1 small clove garlic, finely chopped

1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup shredded Gruyere


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Arrange 14 of the biscuits into a "+" shape in a 18-by-13-inch rimmed baking sheet. You should have 4 equal quadrants. (Reserve the remaining biscuits for another use.) Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. For the cranberry sauce: Mix together the cranberries, sugar, orange juice and cornstarch in a medium bowl until well combined and set aside.  
  3. For the sweet potato casserole: Place the sweet potatoes in a medium microwave-safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave until soft and easy to mash with a fork, about 12 minutes. Add in the milk, butter, sugar, vanilla, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and a few grinds of pepper and mash with a fork or a potato masher until smooth with just a few chunks and set aside. 
  4. For the green bean casserole: Heat the oil in a medium non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are soft and have released most of their liquid, 5 to 6 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables then stir in the heavy cream, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and a few grinds of pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until the sauce has thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Fold in the green beans until well coated and set aside. 
  5. For the scalloped potatoes: Slice the potatoes 1/8-inch-thick and transfer to a medium microwave-safe bowl along with the heavy cream, Parmesan, garlic, thyme, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and a few grinds of pepper. Toss to coat and microwave until softened, about 7 minutes. Set aside. 
  6. Assemble the sheet pan: Pour the cranberry mixture into one quadrant of the baking sheet and sprinkle with the turbinado sugar. Spread the sweet potatoes into a second quadrant and sprinkle with the marshmallows. Pour the green bean mixture into a third quadrant and sprinkle with the crispy onions. Spread the scallop potato mixture into the final quadrant and sprinkle with the Gruyere. 
  7. Bake until the biscuits are cooked through and golden brown, the cranberries are bubbling and bursting, the marshmallows have turned golden brown and the scalloped potatoes are cooked through, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.

Perfect for our COVID-friendly Thanksgiving. This year, with a much smaller celebration, this allowed us to simplify the oven usage. While the turkey breast was cooking, we did the par-cook prep for the rest of the sides and tossed this in to the preheated oven while the turkey rested. Everything timed out perfectly.<br />I would prepare the cranberry sauce RIGHT before you put it in the oven. I made it an hour or so early and it separated a bit during the cook, creating a thick, gelatinous layer at the bottom rather than a consistent jelly texture throughout the sauce. I also created a little "boat" out of aluminum foil to keep the juices from seeping into the other dishes.<br />The scalloped potatoes were the least-loved in our house, so I might swap that out for another side next year. The overall idea of this all-in-one pan was PERFECT and so handy. Thanks!<br />
