Turkey should always be accompanied by incredible Thanksgiving sides. While the turkey may be the star of the table, the meal wouldn’t be complete without its co-stars — think baked mac and cheese, sweet potato casserole, and green bean salad. Others insist that the most incredible Thanksgiving side is roasted Brussels sprouts, although the kids’ table may not agree. Check out a few of our favorites below.
Use store-bought cornbread stuffing mix or slightly stale homemade cornbread for simple stuffing. If you add too much stock to your stuffing, spread it out on a sheet tray and bake until it dries out. — Julie Ruggirello
Green Bean Casserole
Green bean casserole is quite possibly the simplest thing you can make all holiday season. Instead of using canned, blanch fresh-cut green beans until they turn bright green, and then place in a water bath for this casserole.
Sweet Potato Casserole
Use canned sweet potato purée and top with mini marshmallows for this sweet side dish.
