Whether you’re an avid home chef or you simply have more time on your hands, we’re here to help you serve the very best scratch-made sides this holiday season. Discover some of our favorite recipes, from fresh salads and roasted veggies to greens, grains and more—plus the best Brussels sprouts you’ve ever tasted.
Maple Citrus Roasted Brussels Sprouts on the Stalk
You can’t get much fresher than Brussels sprouts straight from the stalk. They’re also easy to prepare and make for a striking, festive presentation!
We top these sprouts with a sweet, tangy maple citrus glaze made with maple syrup, olive oil, lemon and orange zest, salt and pepper. There’s also a garlicky panko breadcrumb topping that adds a satisfying crunch, along with savory flavor that balances the sweetness of the glaze. Roasting the Brussels sprouts gives them that coveted crispy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside texture.
Don’t forget to serve the finished dish with a serrated knife so guests can easily slice off their own desired amount.
These salads are simple, bright and add a pop of color and fresh flavor to your spread. Their crunchy texture complements more traditional dishes and helps cut through the potential monotony of starches. Another benefit? You won't need to worry about making space in the oven—just save a spot on the table!

Quinoa is one of our favorite grains. It’s a versatile, easy-to-make superfood and blends beautifully with fresh veggies. It’s also high in fiber and high-quality protein—more than any other grain!
