Delicious Sides For Friendsgiving

Delicious Sides For Friendsgiving

Friendsgiving is always a fun, eclectic mix of people and food. If you are looking for a delicious (but not too challenging dish) to bring to your celebration, then this post is for you! We put together a list of slightly off-beat dishes for anyone that wants to make a tasty contribution to the feast without spending all day in the kitchen. These non-traditional side dishes are guaranteed rave reviews. And since no celebratory meal is complete without a glass of wine, we threw in some wine pairings to round it out.

Creamy Swiss Chard Gratin with Crispy Gnocchi

This recipe from Food and Wine magazine is an ideal creamy side to add to your buffet. And it happens to pair perfectly with our Chardonnay. It’s a fun take on traditional creamed spinach, and the nutty, salty cheeses combine perfectly with the bechamel for an all-around winner.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Creamy Mustard Sauce

Brussels sprouts have made quite a comeback recently and rightfully so. They are a great substitute for traditional casserole dishes. The creamy mustard sauce in this recipe adds a sophistication to the Brussels sprouts without overpowering them. And without a doubt the best wine for this dish is our Rose. The fresh and delicate notes of berries balance well with the slightly sweet sauce.

Honey Roasted Carrots

We have too many sides (said no one ever)! This quick and simple dish is perfect for a Thanksgiving feast. It’s so good, you might want to incorporate it into your repertoire all year round. The sweet and savory combination adds a je ne sais quoi to an otherwise subtle vegetable. Bold reds are going to pair best with these slightly sweet roasted carrots. Think about reaching for our Red Blend or Cabernet Sauvignon. The hints of spice and silky tannins are a match made in heaven.

Not-So-Ordinary Mac and Cheese

This macaroni and cheese recipe substitutes the ever-present grittiness of homemade Mac and Cheese and replaces it with an ooey-gooey blend of Mozzarella, Parmesan, and white cheddar cheeses that will have you coming back for seconds. Our Pinot Noir pairs perfectly with this combination of cheeses. The notes of strawberries and raspberries complimented by fresh acidity and well integrated oak will have you admiring this wine sip after sip.
