Side Dishes

Side dishes make the dinner, and this collection of side dish recipes contains some of our favorite go-to classics.

From brussel sprouts to mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus and even mac and cheese, if you’re looking for a side dish, we have it here.

Side dishes are arguably as important as the main dish while you’re meal planning, as they really help to elevate your main dish and finish off the meal.

If you’re attending a pot luck, you will most likely be asked to bring some form of a side dish such as a tossed salad, or something more complex like scalloped potatoes!

Timing Tips For Side Dishes

If you have multiple side dishes and minimal oven space, timing everything correctly is important so dinner is ready at the same time. Here are some timing tips:

  • Labeling your timers will ensure you don’t pull the wrong thing out of the oven.
  • Figure out the temperature: if you have multiple recipes with different temperatures, you may be able to adjust the oven temperature on one dish without affecting the overall dish too much.
  • Post it notes are your friend, and will help you ensure you don’t miss anything you’re getting together.
