We could all use some help putting together the finishing touches around the holidays.
So we’ll give you a leg up with these holiday hacks, like pre-cooked sides, that let Thanksgiving come together in 3-2-1.
- FreshDirect Almost Perfect Mashed Potatoes: These potatoes are whipped until they’re light and fluffy, then whisked with milk and butter to make a smooth, rich side dish. Mashers go well with everything, but they’re especially delicious topped with gravy. Only your mom makes a better bowl of spuds.
- FreshDirect Cornbread and Sausage Stuffing: Isn’t Thanksgiving just an excuse to eat stuffing? Sure, we play along with the rest of the meal, but our hearts (and forks) are really in it for that steaming-hot bowl of starchy, savory comfort. This satisfying version of the American classic includes our favorite stuff: tender cornbread cubes, sweet sausage, richly roasted vegetables, pecans and a sprinkle of herbs.
- FreshDirect Creamed Spinach: We think our delicious creamed spinach deserves a spot in the side-dish hall of heroes. Filled with lots of tasty spinach cooked down with butter, whole milk and sour cream (pure decadence, really), we top this savory side with a sprinkle of parmesan and a hint of lemon zest to really push it over the top. Absolutely versatile and almost universally loved, this dish is sure to get a warm welcome alongside your holiday bird.
- FreshDirect Mike’s Hot Honey Carrots: Every holiday table needs a great vegetable side and this one truly hits the mark. We take bias-cut carrots and glaze them with Mike’s Hot Honey, which adds just a hint of tantalizing heat. We roast them until they’re tender but still have a satisfying bite and toss them with parsley for an herbaceous finish.
- FreshDirect Caramelized Onion, Apple and Sage Stuffing: This is a classic savory-sweet stuffing made just the way you know and love. We start with pieces of white bread, then mix them with caramelized onions, celery, Granny Smith apples, and sage. A little bit of vegetable stock and butter is added for moisture and flavor. Your holiday feast just isn’t complete without this traditional side!
