There are so many great things about this thankful holiday, but the main one every one loves is food. I am normally traditional but when being invited to a party that will have most of the traditional trimmings it's time to shake things up a bit.

Try your hand at one of these awesome non-traditional side dishes for turkey day.

  1. Mini mac and cheese pot pies. Easy enough using puff pastry and cupcake tins this is an easy and popular one.
  2. Stuffed acorn squash
  3. Brown sugar brussel sprouts
  4. Pumpkin biscuits 
  5. Artichoke dip and bread

All of the items listed above I have had on or around thanksgiving minus the Pumpkin biscuits. These are great for "freindsgiving" too where there are a ton of people bringing random dishes.
