Vegetable and Fruit Stuffing
Very Good 4.2/5
(39 ratings)

Whole wheat bread gives this side staying power. The fruits and vegetables bulk up the dish, so a little goes a long way. A bit of turkey bacon adds another layer of flavor without adding many calories.

Roasted Squash Soup
Very Good 4.0/5
(61 ratings)

Try a two for one: The next time you are turning on the oven to 375 degrees, roast the squash, cool it slightly, peel and package to freeze. You'll have butternut squash on hand whenever you need it, and you can have dinner on the table in no time!

Mini Apple Tarts
Very Good 4.3/5
(83 ratings)

Instead of a whole pie, try making bite-size tarts. The diminutive desserts cook quicker and are automatically portion controlled. Plus, they're easier to make for a crowd, and there's no need for a fork and plate.

A lighter accompaniment to Turkey. All the flavors of Thanksgiving without swimming butter and sugar.
