Fire Up Your Grill For These Thanksgiving Sides

You probably already know that the perfect smoked turkey is the ultimate centerpiece for your family’s Thanksgiving meal, but did you know that you can also use your grill to construct some delicious sides? After you’ve perfected the art of the turkey (psst… We have a class on how to smoke one on your Big Green Egg on Nov. 10!), use your grill to make some new Thanksgiving side dish traditions!

Hasselback Potatoes

Part french fry, part baked potato, this fancy-looking potato side dish is low-effort if you’ve got a sharp knife, but looks like you spent hours in the kitchen. (Pictured) Recipe via Weber Grills

Grilled Creamed Corn

We’ve all had creamed corn on the table during the holidays, but the old-school version doesn’t even begin to compare to the delicious intensity that grilled corn brings to the dish. Recipe via Rachael Ray Magazine

Orange-Glazed Grilled Acorn Squash

This simple, citrusy glaze brings out the natural sweetness of the acorn squash (but you could definitely sub other types of squash). Recipe via Food Network

Grilled Brussels Sprouts With Balsamic Glaze

Because Grandma probably won’t approve if we don’t bring something green to the table. Charred edges take the sprouts to the next level, and with just a drizzle of balsamic glaze, this dish doesn’t pack a huge calorie punch. More room for dessert? Yes, please. Recipe via Skinnytaste

Bacon-Apple Crisp

Yeah, we know pumpkin pie is the traditional Thanksgiving dessert, but consider this for just a minute: sweet, tender apples and crunchy gingerbread topping balanced with a hint of smoky bacon. Our mouths are watering. How about yours? Recipe via Barbecue Bible
