Best Thanksgiving side dishes

Mashed potatoes

Make perfect mashed potatoes from scratch. They're a Thanksgiving staple that pairs well with roast turkey and a variety of other sides.

Ciabatta and rosemary stuffing

This easy Italian-style stuffing can be prepped ahead – just cook while the roast is resting. For a veggie stuffing, simply leave out the pancetta. Ciabatta will give the stuffing a great chunky texture. It goes well with all roasts, especially turkey.
