We asked some of the country's top toques to tell us about their favorite dishes to serve with turkey:

“True to my upstate New York roots, I make good old-fashioned green bean casserole, with cream of mushroom soup, and French’s onions on top. We call them GBs at my house.”
—Anne Burrell, NYC

“If I were to serve a Thanksgiving dinner with no turkey and all sides, I would serve scalloped potatoes with Brussels sprouts and brown butter, and mashed sweet potatoes with homemade marshmallows on top.”
—Ben Ford, Ford’s Filling Station L.A. Live, Los Angeles

“I do the turkey thing, but I love brioche stuffing. I can’t get enough of it.”
—Michael Kramer, The Lazy Goat, Greenville, SC

“Instead of traditional stuffing I serve a savory caramelized onion and wild mushroom bread pudding.”
—Tim Love, Lonesome Dove, Austin and Fort Worth, TX; Love Shack, Queenie’s Steakhouse, White Elephant Saloon, and Woodshed Smokehouse, Fort Worth, TX
