Sometimes you need to bring a new recipe to the table.
It’s called for. It means you switching things up a little bit, trying new things.
Holiday Side Dish Recipes To Try
Because seriously, who wants to eat the same food day in and day out? I know I sure don’t.
When it comes to Thanksgiving side dishes, I love mixing things up and having several to choose from. I normally make the classics that I serve year after year and then add in some new choices for fun.
How Much to Make for Thanksgiving Dinner
When it comes to the holidays, it’s always fun to gather with family and friends. And let’s face it, gatherings are often centered around food.
How much to cook, how much to bring, and how much to eat are often questions that are overlooked at the holidays.
Instead…bring more, eat more, make more is often the mantra when it comes to the food we eat and love when surrounded by friends and family for the holidays.
If you love food as much as I do…and I’m guessing since you’re looking up recipes on the internet, that is likely the case…then you will love this delicious and colorful presentation of beets and feta. Not only does it make a gorgeously presented side dish, but the flavor is amazing.
The great thing about making more than you normally would for Thanksgiving or other holidays is that you can have a lazy day or two afterwards and enjoy some leftovers. Ours do not go to waste, that’s for sure!
I’m a huge lover of all things side dishes when it comes to holiday meals.
Yes, I’ll take a small portion of whatever meat is being served, but enjoying nibble after nibble of the side dishes is where my heart finds content. I’ll pick a favorite side dish to save for last, and to be honest that is normally my Pecan Sweet Potatoes because they might as well be dessert.
Best Thanksgiving Dessert Recipes
Don’t think for a minute that means I forgo dessert. Not on your life!
Holiday desserts are a no-brainer. If there isn’t a side table that is filled with desserts…well, I’m just not sure what to do with that.
