6 New Side Dishes to Serve this Thanksgiving

The turkey may be the star of Thanksgiving, but everyone knows that the side dishes are where all the fun is. You have to pay homage to the staples (we see you and love you, sweet potato casserole), but that also doesn’t mean you can’t put some new life in your side dishes to serve at this year’s gathering. Luckily, we have six new side dishes to serve that will be refreshing and the delight of your picky aunt.

Stuffed Acorn Squash with Sausage, Apples & Cranberries

Is it delicious yes? Will your cousin who is going gluten-free be able to eat it? Yes. Just say yes these stuffed acorn squash, and you won’t regret it.
