12 Terrific Thanksgiving Sides with a Twist

When the holidays roll around, most families have at least a few traditional dishes that everyone looks forward to each year. But after a while, even the most deeply rooted and delicious menu items can start to feel a little bit stale. When it's time to break out of the rut without completely breaking the rules, try one of these amazing side dishes. These side dishes feature all the traditional Thanksgiving flavors but each one has a little twist: mashed cauliflower instead of potatoes, green bean casserole deconstructed, a hit of maple in the cranberries, sausage in the stuffing. Nothing too crazy. Just crazy good.
