Turkey may be the main event, and everyone may love pie for dessert, but most of a Thanksgiving meal consists of sides.
While every guest may have their personal favorite walking into your holiday dinner, they’ll walk out with a new favorite as soon as you introduce them to one of these spectacular side dishes.
From old classics perfected to mad scientist creations, here are the best Thanksgiving side dishes to wow guests this year.
1 Green Bean Casserole
You might find yourself eating a lot of Thanksgiving dishes on any other afternoon in November, but green bean casserole is nearly universally reserved for the holiday table. While you can debate the merits of creamy green beans on a random Monday night, there’s no debate about this excellent crowd pleaser on the Thanksgiving table. Skip the store-bought soup and frozen green beans for true home-made flavor from scratch (but stick with canned fried onions for a mix of ease and flavor).
