Vegetable sides for Thanksgiving

I am not allowed to vary our Thanksgiving menu very much, the family won't stand for it! :roll:

The only part of the meal I can introduce anything new are vegetables!
Last year we had...

Creamy Corn Casserole
Prep Time: approx. 5 Minutes. Cook Time: approx. 45 Minutes.
Makes 8 servings.

1/2 cup butter, melted
2 eggs, beaten
1 (8.5 ounce) package dry corn bread mix
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (14.75 ounce) can creamed corn
1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and lightly grease a 9x9 baking dish.
In a medium bowl, combine butter, eggs, corn bread mix, whole and creamed corn and sour cream. Spoon mixture into prepared dish.
Bake for 45 mins in the preheated oven, or until the top is golden bown.
(The ingredients can be doubled and baked in a 9x13 baking dish in almost the same amount of cooking time)

It was a hit! Anyhow, now I'm looking for something new for this year.
Will you share your family's favorite vegetable side dish?

Thanks!

Traditional certainly has a better ring, doesn't it? I guess I did make one different thing last year that got gobbled up, but it wasn't a veg.

Cranberry Orange Relish

1 pkg fresh cranberries (12 oz)
1/2 cup sugar
1-1/2 cups boiling water
2 small or 1 large package cranberry or other red Jello mix
1/2 t ground cinnamon
1-1/2 cups cold water
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts

Chop cranberries finely in food processor, mix with sugar, set aside.
Add cinnamon and make the Jello using the water amounts. Refrigerate until thickened - about 90 minutes - then stir in cranberries, oranges, and nuts. Spoon into a 6-cup mold, cover, and back in the fridge for at least four hours.

Unmold for 12 servings.

NOT! I may be allowed free reign in my home to experiment with anything in cooking and everyone feigns delight to be a guinea pig, but the one tacit understanding I have with my husband is that there will ALWAYS be green bean casserole with french-fried onions on the Thanksgiving table!

Fortunately, it is also one of the few things I haven't botched from time to time....

I don't think Americans are allowed to celebrate Thanksgiving without The Casserole. You know those neighbors who come over for "dessert?" They are really the Secret Food Police, checking up to verify that those are stray bits of mushroom, green been bits, and french fried onion crumbs in the casserole dish.
