Our Best Grilling SidesRecipe
Cardamom-Scented Sweet Potato Rounds with CilantroThe mildly spicy, citrusy taste and floral aroma of cardamom brighten the rich flavor of the creamy sweet potatoes in this dish.Recipe
Pecan DressingThe bread cubes can be toasted up to three days ahead, then stored in an airtight container at room temperature. The dressing itself can be prepared a day ahead and stored in the baking dish, covered, in the refrigerator.Recipe
Oyster-and-Bacon DressingFreshly shucked oysters and their liquor plus a touch of smoky bacon give this traditional Thanksgiving side tons of flavor.Recipe
Buttered Green Beans with Shallots and LemonThe crunchy, downright addictive topping in this recipe adds big flavor to all manner of side dishes, including mashed potatoes, brussels sprouts, and dressings, or even as a garnish for turkey and gravy. The shallots can be fried five days ahead and stored in an airtight container at room temperature.Recipe
Lillet and Brown-Butter Glazed Radishes with KohlrabiLook for radishes with fresh, vibrant green tops, which lend a striking color and mild peppery bite.Recipe
Indian-Spiced Eggplant StacksWarm naan and some cucumbers make a nice accompaniment to this dish.Recipe
Brussels Sprouts with Oranges and BaconSmall thin-skinned oranges work best here. Look for organic, as you are going to want to eat the whole fruit. The combination of sweet orange, lightly smoky bacon, and caramelized brussels sprouts is absolutely addictive.Recipe
Roasted Squash with Cherry Tomatoes and EggsLook for very small butternut squashes, or small to medium acorn squashes. If you find the hollow in a butternut isn't large enough, scoop a bit of the cooked flesh out before adding the egg.Recipe
Roasted-Carrot-and-Beet TartThe cilantro here is fragrant even after cooking, and the vegetables' sweetness is offset by the toasted spices. Roasting beets provides more intense flavor but requires peeling them raw, which can leave hands red; consider wearing gloves.Recipe
Cauliflower-and-Mushroom RoastWe like to think of this recipe as a deconstructed, healthier grilled cheese. Cauliflower stands in as the base while the bread serves as a crunchy garnish.Recipe
Cheesy Soppressata Pull-Apart BreadA pair of kitchen shears is the key to making even cuts.Recipe
Green Bean Casserole with BaconFrozen French-cut green beans can be used in place of fresh to save time. Make sure to thaw them first, drain well, and pat dry with paper towels.Recipe
Broccoli CasseroleGouda and sour cream lend richness to this comforting casserole, while umami-rich Worcestershire sauce adds depth of flavor.Recipe
Fried Brussels SproutsThe Brussels sprouts should be thoroughly dry before frying. Any water clinging to the sprouts will cause the oil to splatter. The oil takes time to come up to temperature, so get that heating on the stovetop before prepping the other ingredients.Recipe
Ed's Pickle MixServe Ed McFarland's pickle mix alongside his recipe for lobster rolls for the perfect summer meal.AdvertisementAdvertisementRecipe
Whole-Wheat Spaghetti with Lighter PestoFresh pesto is always a better choice than pre-made; here the basil flavor is intensified.Recipe
Green Beans with Golden RaisinsThis recipe combines golden raisins and Parmesan cheese from the West with sesame and tea from the East.Recipe
Spicy Vegetable SauteThis spicy-hot saute goes well with Jerk Pork Tenderloin or grilled chicken and beef.
