Get creative with Thanksgiving standards with these 14 reimagined side dishes
Your guests won’t cry foul if you divert from the traditional casserole when you offer updates like a flavorful Roasted Green Beans with Pancetta or bright and citrusy Green Beans with Rosemary-Orange Glaze.
It can be a sacrilege to omit the stuffing your family has come to expect at the Thanksgiving table, but if you’re looking for a refresh, try individual-sized Stuffing Muffins or spicy, veggie-rich Mexican Cornbread Stuffing.
Mashed potatoes hardly change from year to year, but we love the extra creaminess in these chive-topped Mascarpone Whipped Potatoes and the cheesy bacon richness of this new Loaded Twice Baked Potato Casserole.
Whether you’re a cranberry jelly fan or a fresh-cranberry purist, reimagining this iconic holiday side dish is easy to do in our Layered Cranberry Salad and Cranberry Sauce Muffins.
Instead of the standard candied sweet potatoes, try a super savory Italian Sweet Potato Gratin, made easy with a few shortcuts, or give your oven a break with Grilled Sweet Potato and Pepper Packs, packed with honey and finished with fresh chives.
Try a rich new spin on classic braised Brussels sprouts with our Cheesy Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, or go for something entirely different with a crunchy, flavorful Brussels Sprouts Salad.
If a butternut squash dish is a staple in your home try a Parmesan Butternut Squash Gratin that tastes a little more indulgent, or a rustic spin that showcases seasonal ingredients and adds a sweetness in a surprising new way like in this Butternut Squash with Orange-Butter Glaze.
