We all know that the typical centerpiece of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner is the turkey. But for as much spotlight as the big bird on the table gets, your meal would not be complete without a wide range of accompanying sides. These must-try Thanksgiving side dishes offer up unique takes on familiar faves, ensuring that this year’s gathering is among the most memorable.
Butternut squash macaroni and cheese
If you love the thickness and creaminess of mac and cheese but want to cut down a bit on the calories, try adding roasted butternut squash. Not only does this help the flavors pop even more, but it gives the dish a texture that pairs well with your turkey and dinner rolls.
While it’s hard to beat straight-up cornbread and dressing on their own, this recipe combines these two Thanksgiving titans for an easy-to-make and easier-to-eat treat. Best of all, the dressing can be made up in advance, cutting down on the amount of prep you have to do the day of, which gives you more time to kick back and watch some football.
Lima bean and shrimp casserole
