The holiday season is in full swing, so it’s time to start planning holiday dinners. If you’ll be hosting a festive feast or two this year, what kinds of side dishes should you serve? Consider making one or more of the following side dishes for your holiday meals.
Sweet Potato Casserole
This side dish goes well with turkey, ham or non-meat main dishes for holiday dinners. To make it, just mix sweet potatoes, eggs, butter, white sugar, vanilla extract, salt and milk in a bowl, then put the potato mixture into a baking dish. Stir flour and brown sugar together in another bowl, then add butter and pecans. Sprinkle this over the sweet potatoes, then bake at 325 degrees for about 30 minutes.
Lemon Pepper Green Beans
Put a spicy spin on green beans for a nutritious holiday side dish with this recipe. This is a simple side dish that you’ll only need a few ingredients for. To make it, cook green beans as you normally would while melting butter on medium heat in a separate pan. Sauté almonds in the pan, then season them with lemon pepper. Add the green beans, then stir them around to coat them with the almonds and lemon pepper.
Instead of making the usual boxed stuffing, try this tasty recipe for your holiday feast. Start by melting butter over medium-high heat, then add mushrooms and cook for about five minutes. Stir in green onions and cook for another minute, then remove the skillet from heat. Add rosemary, soy sauce and pepper to the skillet. Put the mushroom mix in a bowl, then add croutons and carrots. Moisten with water, then place the stuffing into a casserole dish. Bake at 325 degrees for about 50 to 60 minutes.
Buttermilk-Sage Mashed Potatoes
For this delicious recipe, just boil potatoes in water until they’re tender, then place them in a large bowl. Add sage, pepper, salt and buttermilk, then mash the potatoes until they’re as thick or as fluffy as you want them to be.
