From stuffing and green beans to mashed potatoes and salad, holiday sides recipes are just as important as the main dish. Add color and texture to your holiday buffet with vibrant veggie dishes featuring caramelized winter squash or crisp green beans. For a lighter side, opt for a citrus-flecked salad or a showstopping whole cauliflower. Pair those with potato dishes both savory and sweet. You can't go wrong with spuds that are stacked, swirled, baked or gratinéed.
Smashed Potatoes with Goat Cheese and Chives
If you want to make the potatoes ahead, chill them and reheat just before serving, adding extra liquid to desired consistency. Stir in the chives just before serving. For a nice presentation, sprinkle additional chives over the top.
