Five Easy Side Dishes You Need in Your Holiday Spread
Wheat-filled deliciousness for the family
When it comes to the festive dinner spread, the mains are usually a given. Turkey, roast beef or ham, a potato dish and some root veggies to finish it off. What can really make or break your holiday dinner is the sides you choose to serve with your main meal. Luckily we’ve got your back and have put together some incredibly delicious ideas made with life’s simple ingredient for you to bring to your family gathering.
The red and green in this savoury holiday star bread is not only perfect for the Christmas season, but it makes the bread taste amazing, too. Roasted red pepper, asiago cheese and basil pesto combine to make for a delicious seasoning to this bread. Move over, roast beef, because this star bread is sure to be the highlight of your dinner table.
These are super easy to make but still perfect to impress your guests! Pop-in-your mouth cheese puffs make for a great side or appetizer for your holiday feast. Swap out the Gruyere for any of your favourite hard cheeses and you’ve got yourself a simple yet tasty side.
You can’t go wrong with the classic green bean casserole! Add a little green to your Christmas spread with this easy to make, savoury-salty dish that you can make the day of your holiday meal. With simple ingredients you can easily find at the grocery store, this casserole is a classic for a reason.
If you’re short on time but want an eye-catching side that is also fluffy and delicious, try this crescent Christmas tree! With only four ingredients (thanks, Pillsbury™ Crescent Rolls!), you can whip this together last minute without looking like you forgot about your side dish duties.
If you’ve got flour, salt, eggs and milk in your kitchen, you’re ready to make these Yorkshire popovers. These make for the ideal side to pair with your turkey or beef gravy. These are moist inside, like a Yorkshire pudding with a crisp exterior, like a popover. Now, that’s the best of both worlds.
