Time to put that casserole dish to work.
The presents are opened, the carols sung, and now it’s time to gather 'round a table for a delicious Christmas feast. From appetizers and flavor-packed main dishes to mouthwatering Christmas desserts, festive food is the star of this joyful family meal. The main course may catch your eye first (shout out to prime rib, turkey, ham, of whatever you may serve for Christmas dinner) but these Christmas side dishes are what actually fill your plate (and stomach).
It’s hard to find the time to perfect your mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts and green beens with all of the chaos of the holiday season. And we get it: Between buying presents for your friends and family, finding the most festive Christmas house decorations, and spending a holly jolly time with your crew, the last thing you’re trying to do is make Christmas dinner more complicated with a new recipe. But your prime rib deserves some amazing sides, so bring on the flavor-packed, super easy dishes that are sure to please the whole family.
Whether you’re on the hunt for traditional Christmas dishes or something to serve with your ham that offers up a little extra flair (like Roasted Carrots with Cumin-Thyme Granola) these tried and true recipes will be the perfect partners for any main dish you prepare this Christmas. Round out your holiday feast with any of these gorgeous recipes — potatoes, greens, butternut squash, and more.
