It’s called Turkey Day but let’s be honest, sides are the best thing about a Thanksgiving meal. And since most of them are served only once-a-year (green bean casserole in June, no way!), they are sacred and special.
Every family has their favorites, their go-tos for this time of year. But in case you’re looking for some inspiration for something new, here are a few sides we’re serving this Thanksgiving.
We’ve taken out the dairy, but not the flavor. And trust us, you’ll want to make an extra batch of the crispy onion topping just for snacking.
Homemade aioli is the key to fluffy, flavorful mash, and will have you and your family coming back for seconds (and thirds!).
No matter how amazingly moist your turkey is, it’s just not the same without gravy. We’ve added porcini mushrooms and turkey for a rich showstopper of a sauce.
Sweet potatoes are a classic Thanksgiving side. We top ours with marshmallows, so they’re almost like a dessert.
Hasselback Butternut Squash just may become your new favorite Thanksgiving side dish. The cheese is optional, so omit it and serve it as a non-dairy veggie side.
This stuffing works both in a pan or inside a turkey, or even as individual servings, like the stuffin' muffins shown here. To save time on Thanksgiving prep, you can make the cornbread part of the recipe in advance.
