15 Years of Holiday Side Dishes

Martha Stewart Living, November 2006

They're called side dishes, but for many people, the fluffed potatoes, the buttered vegetables, and the warm biscuits that appear on holiday tables are the main draw. Since Martha Stewart Living's first year, our kitchens have devised hundreds of recipes to keep Thanksgiving turkeys and other main courses in fine company. Readers have responded, telling us they love the whipped sweet potatoes because they trade the usual marshmallows for cooked apples. And fans of the roasted-vegetable salad say the dish is as beautiful as it is delicious. For our anniversary, we've assembled these and many other sideboard favorites.

    Bluepen- try just baking them and serving them like a baked potato with butter and brown sugar with a little cinnamon mixed in. Or peel them and chunk, bake in a casserole dish with melted butter, orange juice and a little brown sugar to taste.

    Sorry about the repeated posts...something went haywire.
    Here is another recipe:

    2. Peel and cut up yams in bite sizes. toss with minced fresh garlic and olive oil. Roast until edges are browned. Drizzle fresh lime juice over the potatoes before serving. These are to DIE for. I hated yams/sweet potatoes until trying this recipe. My husband and I both love this recipe.

    1. Try using your favorite scalloped potatoes recipe and alternate layers of peeled russet potatoes and peeled sliced of "sweet potato". I use Beauregard yams. My preference in scalloped potato recipes includes a white sauce, real butter, and finely chopped onion.

    Does anyone have a recipe for yams that is not sweet other than just mashing them?
