Delicious Holiday Side Dishes

I’ve rounded up delicious holiday side dishes that you might want to try cooking at Christmastime. Or any other time!

There are always talented food bloggers out there thinking up new recipes to wow us with.

In Delicious Holiday Side Dishes, this is the graphic I created for this post.

Holidays are such a special time for everyone. And food is always at the top of the list of favorite things about the holiday season.

All of these recipes for side dishes look delicious to me!

Hasselback Potatoes:

Wrote the blogger from Yellow Bliss Road:

“Hasselback Potatoes are the perfect way to break dinnertime boredom.

“With melted cheddar, crisp bacon, sour cream and fresh chives flavoring each and every slice this easy potato recipe is great for both a side dish and a main course.”

I agree with her about this possibly being a main course.

Green Beans Almondine:

Wrote the blogger from Ahead Of Thyme: “Green Beans Almondine is buttery, garlicky, and nutty.

“This classic French side dish is quick and easy to make, and loaded with flavor. And it has the perfect combination of textures between green beans and almonds.

Corn Pudding:

Wrote the blogger from Chef Savvy:

“I wanted to make this recipe without using canned creamed corn or pre-made jiffy mix. To replicate creamy canned corn I added in melted butter and heavy cream. Instead of jiffy mix I used a mix of cornmeal and flour.

“For extra flavor I decided to brown the butter instead of just melting it. Browning the butter is easy and adds a hint of nuttiness to this easy corn pudding.”

I love both cornbread and any type of corn. This is a winning dish all around in my book!

Garlic Rosemary Potatoes:

Wrote the blogger from Big Bear’s Wife:

“This easy Garlic Rosemary Potatoes side dish is ready in under an hour. It’s great for Thanksgiving, Christmas or just as a side for a fabulous dinner any time of year!”

Italian Roasted Mushrooms & Veggies:

Wrote the blogger from Jo Cooks:

“I roast veggies like this all the time, on a weekly basis. When done well it can really elevate a simple side dish into one packed with flavor. This time I chose to use gorgeous and delicious cremini mushrooms, cauliflower, and tomatoes.”

In my view this is another side dish that could possibly serve as a main dish. Perhaps with some sort of salad accompanying it.

Asiago Bruschetta Roasted Asparagus:

Wrote the blogger from Flavor Mosaic:

“Asiago Bruschetta Roasted Asparagus, with tomatoes, garlic, onions, and Asiago cheese, makes a healthy gourmet side dish that can be on the table in 15 minutes. And it is perfect for brunch, or a weeknight or holiday dinner.”

Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots Made Simple:

Wrote the blogger from The Simple Parent:

Whether you’re celebrating a holiday like Easter, Thanksgiving, or Christmas, or you’re just making dinner for the family, these glazed carrots will be enjoyed!

Apple Walnut Salad With Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette:

Wrote the blogger from Ahead Of Thyme:

“This salad just takes a few classic fall ingredients; throws them together to make fall salad perfection!

“Apples give this apple walnut salad an amazing crunchy kick. The walnuts add some depth, and the cranberries balance the salad out with that little extra sweetness and taste of the holidays.”

I check food blogger sites on a regular basis to find appealing dishes. These talented bloggers are far more creative than I am when it comes to food, and I so appreciate their efforts.

Wherever you’re eating and celebrating the coming holiday, try to leave room in the evening to sip healthy hot chocolate recipes.

“Eat, drink, and be merry!”
