First, we’re admitting that we might be a little biased with our opinion on how important that main holiday dish is. Now that we’ve put our ham bias aside, let’s talk about sides. We recognize that for some people, sides can actually assume starring roles.
What we love about sides is that any great holiday dinner should feature a medley of flavors and dishes. That said, we’re offering up five amazing – and slightly unusual – sides that we’ve collected from some of our favorite recipe resources.
MINI SAUSAGE AND PARMESAN RICE BALLS
You know we’re a fan of meatballs. The folks at Real Simple have taken an incredible twist on this dish, combining sausage, rice and herbs into a delicious appetizer or side that is sure to be popular with your holiday dinner guests. Use Hatfield’s Recipe Essentials™ to make preparing this side even simpler!
ZUCCHINI STUFFED WITH SAUSAGE
One thing we love about the holidays is when people introduce us to new recipes. Well, Kristina Johnson over at FormerChef.com has a great recipe that brings veggies and sausage together for one beautiful – seriously, check out her photos – and delicious side. Also, save a step and give the recipe a “kick” as Kristina says by using the Recipe Essentials™ Hot Italian Ground Sausage.
David Tanis notes in his New York Times recipe that “sausage wrapped in pastry exists in every cuisine in one way or another,” but that it’s become a traditional part of Boxing Day – a national holiday in Britain. Well, we’re endorsing this recipe to be part of your holiday spread, every holiday! We know we’ve said it before, but Recipe Essentials™ will help save a step or two here as well.
COUNTRY SAUSAGE CORNBREAD
What is a holiday meal without great cornbread? And you guessed it, this delicious recipe also features Recipe Essentials™. What we love about this side is that it has a rustic feel and it can be served as part of a holiday brunch spread or it can be part of your main meal lineup.
SAUSAGE CORNBREAD STUFFING
Whether you call it stuffing or dressing, this recipe packs plenty of flavor and can be used to accompany or stuff your turkey or pork loin. And, yes, it also includes Recipe Essentials™ as well as onion, celery, bell pepper and orange peel. See, we told you it was packed with flavor!
