A turkey can't just sit alone on the table. Here are some recipes for Thanksgiving's most popular side dishes.
What would a turkey be on Thanksgiving without its faithful side companions? Often more popular than the turkey itself, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and other favorites are staples of the food coma-inducing meal.
