So here are just a few ideas to add some variety to your table this year

Roasted Beets: beets have a nice earthy potato-like taste but are also sweet and good for you!

Fried brussel sprouts with bacon - Bacon makes everything better. Who knows, maybe the kids will finally eat  their brussel sprouts without complaining

Salad - Any kind of salad works. With so much stuffing, gravy and potatoes, it will be good to give your guest a light option. 

Sweet potato pancakes - these are easy to fry up in a sauté pan and it really brings out the sweet flavor of the potatoes.

Pumpkin Soup - Instead of pumpkin pie, try some pumkin soup

Wild rice with bacon and raisins - bacon and raisins may seem like a strange combo but you'll thank us when you taste it

Sautéed brussel spouts and sweet potatoes - This dish can satisfy the vegetarian in your life
