17 Delicious Alternatives for Popular Thanksgiving Side Dishes

If you love the creamy flavor of mashed potatoes, but need a healthier option to appease your health-conscious relatives this Thanksgiving, try making mashed cauliflower, mashed celery root, or mashed carrots and parsnips using a food processor and seasonings of your choice.

While some of us can't imagine a Thanksgiving dinner without stuffing, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, and other classic side dishes, sometimes changing things up can be a very delicious thing. Instead of cranberry sauce, how about apricot relish or wine-poached pears? Or, instead of green bean casserole, how about bacon-wrapped green beans or roasted Brussels sprouts?

Whatever you decide to do, make sure you also have a backup emergency plan for potential Thanksgiving cooking disasters.
