Time again for the holiday of togetherness and stuffing one's face… the holiday of Pilgrims, Puritans, and pardoning fair fowl. These sides are perfect for your turkey day celebration. Brussels served with walnuts and sweet maple syrup take the hurt out of eating “healthy.” And garlicky, truffle-y mashed potatoes will bring decadence to your table like you've never dreamed.

  1. 1

    Cook Potatoes and Prepare Ingredients

    Peel and cut potatoes into 1" dice.

    Bring a medium pot with potatoes, garlic cloves, and enough water to cover to a boil. Cook until potatoes are tender, 14-18 minutes.

    While potatoes boil, trim stems off Brussels sprouts and slice thinly.

    Coarsely chop walnuts.

    Mince parsley, leaves and stems.

  2. 2

    Mash the Potatoes

    Drain cooked potatoes in a colander and return to pot.

    Add butter, milk, Parmesan, parsley, and truffle oil (to taste). Mash until desired consistency is reached. Season with 1/2 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper and set aside.

    While potatoes, cook Brussels sprouts.

  3. 3

    Start the Brussels Sprouts

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add Brussels sprouts to hot pan and stir occasionally until lightly charred, 3-5 minutes.

  4. 4

    Finish the Brussels Sprouts

    Add walnuts and maple syrup to pan and stir occasionally until a light glaze forms, 1-2 minutes.

    Season with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Remove from burner and set aside.
