7 Unexpected Side Dish Recipes You Need This Thanksgiving
Here's how to liven up your dinner table
No offense to green bean casserole and Grammie's secret sweet potato recipe, but you've had the same sides dishes at your Thanksgiving table for too long. It's time to change things up. Here, seven new and exciting Thanksgiving side dish recipes you'll want to serve this year (and for many years to come).
We cried a little when we first tried this cheesy dish. Because it's just that good.
Brussels Sprouts Latkes
Using sprouts instead of spuds seriously upgrades these fritters.
Kale and Cheddar Cheese Galette
All greens should be baked (with cheese, duh) and served in savory pie form.
Individual stuffing portions? Brilliant.
Stuffed Butternut Squash
Sorry, sweet potatoes. You've been replaced. (Bonus: This makes for a tasty main dish for your vegetarian friends.)
Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes
The secret here is that this recipe is designed to be made ahead of time. Just warm it up on Turkey Day and—voilà—creamy, delicious potatoes.
Broccoli and Cauliflower Gratin
Confession: We love gratins. And this one is a stellar substitute for green bean or broccoli casserole.
