    My husband did this awesome thing with brussel sprouts for Thanksgiving tossed in the roasting pan with a drizzle of olive oil, cranberries, honey and pecans I think. People asked him to do the encore. We are talking of a man whose omelette is like soup, and the kids call all his cooking slops. :)

    What about outside the box and fixing some type of salad?

    is everyone pumpkin'd out over there after thanksgiving? and personally i've found no one is ever upset if you turn up with a cheesecake - well i guess maybe if they dont like cheesecake but then i haven't had that issue ;)

    Like @zinzilah I was going to suggest brussel sprouts. My DH did a grilled sprouts once and even my veggie-phobic dad asked for seconds! Or what about a nice roll or cornbread or hominy (technically it's corn but it's not CORN, ya know?). Or green beans with bacon, or a yummy fruit dish, like apple sauce (that's what my grandma always made) or a sliced apples with cinnamon dish (less sugar lol).

    We make a hot fruit salad that is super easy and a crowd pleaser. Not gourmet by any stretch but the kids love it. 2 cans whole berry cranberry sauce, 2 small cans mandarin oranges (drained), 1 lg can pineapple chunks (drained), 1 can peaches - OPTIONAL, (drained), 1/4 c brown sugar, 2 TBSP seed pearl tapioca OR tapioca flakes. Mix well. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. If using seed, make sure cooked thoroughly.

    My husband's answer to every side dish he ever has to bring anywhere is guacamole. Even at Christmas, the bowl gets cleaned out!
