OK, sweet potatoes with marshmallows? Brussel Sprouts? What kind of stuffing/dressing?
You mean one of these?The standard issue of side dishes like mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, etc. but we add our traditional family things. Considering that my side of the family has Kentucky traditions as well as the New York ones and my wife's side is all Italian, we have some interesting combinations.
Mother-in-Law's "Italian Stuffing": It's pretty much a standard bread stuffing recipe. We replace about 1/4 to 1/3 of the bread/stuffing mix with crumbled up Cheese Tidbit crackers and add a ton of hard salami & cheddar cheese to the mix. I usually make an extra pan or two so that I can take it hunting with me.
Grandma's Creamed Pearl Onions: A giant pain-in-the-butt to make, but SO much better from scratch than anything you can buy.
Stuffed Artichokes: LOTS of garlic, steamed in a turkey stock made from the neck bones and all the onion/celery trimmings from the stuffing.
Oven-roasted Brussel Sprouts: With bacon, onions, & garlic.
Sweet Potato Pie: A much deeper flavor than regular old pumpkin and not as sweet. Served with "Black Coffee" from that annoying damned top & bottom contraption that seems to be a fixture in every Italian home. Nobody I know ever bought one, it's just always been there.
