Top Side Dishes for Entertaining

In my family, side dishes are just as important to the meal as the main course. An array of delicious sides can take a holiday meal from basic to basically amazing. Here’s my list of top sides to serve at your next holiday meal that’ll keep them coming back for seconds:

Crispy Potato Roast – Layers of potatoes stacked vertically to get crispy browned edges. The caramelized onions and fresh rosemary update this non-traditional potato side.

Inside-Out Stuffing: Lots of stuffing with a little chicken. Sounds about right to me.

Sweet Potato Wedges – This is possibly the easiest side dish to whip up – a total of only five ingredients and ready to bake in five minutes. The unique combination of spices makes this dish extra yummy.

Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes: These tasty taters are vegan – swapping using buttery flavoured dairy-free butter. They get their flavour boost from tasty homemade caramelized onions (or use store-bought if you can find).

Buttermilk Biscuits – Confession: these biscuits come from a gluten-free baking mix. But they are decadent, tasty and fast. Perfect for dipping into gravy or slathering with butter.
