If you’re looking to cook up an unforgettable feast that will please even the pickiest palates this holiday, remember it’s all about what you serve on the side. Let’s admit it: some Thanksgiving side dishes are so mouthwateringly good that it’s tempting to skip the turkey altogether. While grandma’s recipe box might be the go-to for classic crowd-pleasers year after year, adding a few updated favorites to the menu will take your table to the next level this Thanksgiving.
