Whether you’re traveling to spend Thanksgiving with family or hosting the dinner yourself, you have no time to spare on Thanksgiving Day. It’s busy enough as it is. You can save yourself a lot of time by prepping your side dishes the day before. Everything from the cranberry sauce to the stuffing can be made at least a day ahead of time so you’re not rushing trying to get everything ready on Turkey Day. And don’t worry… these sides will be even more delicious the next day.
Most of these sides are wonderful for Christmas and other holidays, too.
