Easy Meal Ideas For Side Dishes

Sometimes coming up with the main dish for meals is the simple part but what to have with it can be the hard question. I usually serve vegetables as my side dish and I’m always trying to come up with new thoughts. Here are a few of our favorites.

Potatoes. Try twice baked potatoes adding milk, shredded cheese and ranch dressing. For kids using small potatoes makes these more fun.
Another potato dish is to saute hash brown potatoes, either chopped yourself or using frozen hash browns, with onion and season with seasoning salt.

Green peppers. Stuffed peppers with rice either with green peppers or using red, yellow, orange or green for fun.

Zucchini. Chop zucchini in strips and place on a sheet of tin foil. Sprinkle with butter. Then salt and pepper. You can add other cut vegetables as well. Wrap up and bake in the oven 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stuffed Zucchini is another fantastic option.

Carrots. Serve carrots cut in strips with a dip, shredded in a carrot salad or glaze carrots with a small sugar and butter.

Cauliflower. Steam and serve with a cheese sauce or bake tossed with garlic butter and sprinkle with breadcrumbs.

Broccoli. Stir broccoli florets with a Tablespoon of oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast in a 500 degree oven 10-12 minutes stirring once. Make a broccoli salad with bacon pieces and sunflower seeds or serve raw with a dip.

Serving a side of corn, green beans or tossed salad is always fantastic also. These are simple meal thoughts for side dishes that hopefully will fight the mealtime boredom.
