From stuffing and green beans to mashed potatoes and salad, holiday sides recipes are just as important as the main dish. Add color and texture to your holiday buffet with vibrant veggie dishes featuring caramelized winter squash or crisp green beans. For a lighter side, opt for a citrus-flecked salad or a showstopping whole cauliflower. Pair those with potato dishes both savory and sweet. You can't go wrong with spuds that are stacked, swirled, baked or gratinéed.

Completing the triumvirate of stuffing styles, this bread-based version takes advantage of sourdough's tangy chewiness for structure and taste, while adding the unexpected flavors of earthy mushrooms, subtly sweet pears, and licorice-like tarragon.
