Top 10 Delicious Holiday Side Dishes Perfect Addition To Your Holiday Meal

Remember last week when I skipped right to dessert and posted the Top 10 Holiday Dessert Recipes? Yeah, so much for saving the best for last. I confess. I am that relative sneaking into the kitchen to ‘taste test’ those awesome sweet plates of goodness. Just making sure everyone will be happy. I’m a giver. You’re welcome.

Got the turkey? Got the ham? Maybe a nice rack of lamb even? Well, now what? I know! If I have to eat one more spoonful of green bean  casserole I think it might choke. (sorry Mom, you make the best GBC ever) Once again, because I’m such a giver, I’ve scoured the internet looking for the best of the best. Some twists on classic dishes and some pretty unique takes as well! Take a gander at these delicious holiday side dishes I dug up! Tell me they won’t make that GBC look boring and bland!
