Cranberry-Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Cranberry-Glazed Sweet Potatoes Recipe
This might just be the easiest Thanksgiving recipe ever. Microwave the sweet potatoes until tender, then cover with a glaze made from brown sugar, margarine, orange juice, and whole berry cranbery sauce.

Creamed Collards

Creamed Collards Recipe
Add some color to the Thanksgiving table with this easy way to prepare collard greens. Bacon, butter, onion, chicken broth, apple cider vinegar, and a homemade Béchamel Sauce make for a creamy, savory side that your guests are sure to love.

Brussels Sprouts with Pecans

Brussels Sprouts with Pecans Recipe
Brussels sprouts get a bad rap most of the time. This member of the cabbage family has a distinctive bite, but this recipe tranforms them into a buttery, sweet, and nutty creation. Slicing the sprouts (instead of serving whole) cuts down on cooking time, which is another plus for busy cooks!

Roasted Squash Stuffed with Corn Bread Dressing

Roasted Squash Stuffed with Corn Bread Dressing Recipe
This side dish has both great flavor and beautiful presentation. The tart dried cranberries and currants balance the mildly sweet roasted squash and maple-flavored cornbread.

Carrot Soufflé

Carrot Soufflé Recipe
Carrots have a subtly sweet flavor and pack a mighty nutritional punch. Though not a true soufflé–as there are no egg whites in the recipe–this dish is still light, airy, and oh so delicious.
