Fantastic Fall Side Dishes

  • 5-Ingredient Butternut Squash Fritters: They’re hot, crispy, salty and the ultimate way to sneak squash onto the plates of even the most veggie-averse eaters! Top ‘em with a cool dollop of sour cream or yogurt for fall’s fave side dish or snack.
  • Roasted Butternut Squash Risotto: What’s not to love about a recipe that calls for butter, garlic, cheese and white wine? Big win!
  • Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta and Balsamic Syrup: These toasted beauties get extra crispy in the oven and can be served hot or room temp. This recipe has converted many Brussels sprouts haters into lovers!
  • The Best Mashed Sweet Potatoes: They’re silky-smooth, loaded with flavor, and can be made in advance then kept warm in a slow cooker.
  • Easy Honey Roasted Carrots: Honey and olive oil provide the perfect coating that when hit with a burst of heat from the oven, transforms into a syrupy, sweet and savory topping. Finish off the carrots with a handful of chopped fresh herbs for the ultimate flavor-packed side.
