Turkey might be the centerpiece of a Thanksgiving meal, but that doesn't mean the side dishes aren't equally important.

Ahead of the annual feast, we are ranking the best and worst side dishes because, let's be honest, we can't stop ourselves from filling our plates to the brim with these delectable delights.

We just wouldn't enjoy our Thanksgiving quite as much without the mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole and all the fixings!

Is it even really Thanksgiving without the stuffing, brussels sprouts or dinner rolls? We don't think so.

Scroll down to find out which side dish ranked at the top—and bottom—of our list.

Then, it's your turn to vote for your favorite part of a Thanksgiving meal and weigh in on the side dish that you would be happy to leave off your plate.

Who knows, maybe you'll have the very wrong opinion that cranberry sauce is the best!

Even if you differ from our list, one thing we can all agree on is that the best part of any Thanksgiving dinner is spending time with friends and family.

For your sake though, we hope they are great cooks that don't mess up the green bean casserole!
