List Rules Any traditional side dish you would eat with turkey at Thanksgiving dinner

To get you ready for the season - here's a list of the tastiest side dishes to serve and eat on Thanksgiving. Each November, Americans gather together for a huge meal of turkey, stuffing, potatoes, cranberry sauce and other fixings, to commemorate the Pilgrims arrival in the "New World" as well as to give thanks for all of their blessings throughout the year. The Thanksgiving tradition has become so ingrained in American society that most of the foods served at the Thanksgiving meal are synonymous with the holiday itself. Even when served in other seasons, we often think of many of these side dishes as "Thanksgiving foods." (For example - when's the last time you ate cranberry sauce other than Thanksgiving?)

This list attempts to determine the best side dishes and platters that appear on the Turkey Day table. May it inspire you and guide your menu for the upcoming holiday! Vote for your favorites, and if your chosen side dish doesn't appear, add it to the list. Bon appetit!
