Everybody’s Thanksgiving looks a little different. While many people choose to cook a tasty turkey (or another meat or vegan option) as their main dish, the chef’s creativity shines in the unique side dishes.

We asked our Facebook followers what their favorite Thanksgiving recipes are — here’s what they said:

Brie, spinach + artichoke dressing

Whether you call it stuffing or dressing, you can always count on it being delicious. One of our followers, Stephanie Rauch, recommends trying out a brie, spinach and artichoke dressing this Thanksgiving.

We’ve included American chef and restaurateur Emeril Lagasse’s spinach and artichoke stuffing above — here are some more recipes to get inspired by:

Homemade baked mac + cheese

You can’t go wrong with macaroni and cheese. Add “homemade” and “baked” to the equation, and you’ve got a mouthwateringly good side dish for your Thanksgiving meal.

One of our followers, Brianna Alexander, recommends Mom On Timeout’s recipe. If you’re looking for some other variations, you can also try out these recipes:

Carrot soufflé

A recipe I personally haven’t heard of was recommended by Denise Whitaker Lewis, another one of our Facebook followers. After reading through these recipes, I can’t wait to try this sweet dish, which I can imagine pairs nicely with some savory turkey:

Oyster casserole

I’ve also never heard of oyster casserole, and it is probably the last thing I would ever expect to be included in a Thanksgiving meal. Yet, after searching for recipes, it seems to be a very popular dish. Thanks to one of our Facebook followers, Camryn Duff, this dish is on our radar and we can’t wait to give it a try.

We’ve linked How To Feed a Loon’s oyster casserole recipe above — be sure to check out these links as well:

Cranberry sauce

“Best cranberry sauce: A bag or two of fresh cranberries, sugar, an orange. Zest the orange. Wash cranberries. Put cranberries, sugar, zest of orange and juice from orange in a sauce pan. Heat and stir; medium or low heat; cook it but do not let it burn or stick. Serve warm or refrigerate and serve the next day.”
