Do you need a side dish in a hurry?

I remember several years ago a friend and I were making a salad and the candied nuts that were supposed to go in the salad burned on the stove top. We ended up having to come up with a quick alternative to take with us since we had burned all the walnuts.

During the holidays it seems like there are more potlucks, dinners, and special events than usual.

If you need a side dish that is ready to go in less than thirty minutes try one of the recipes below.


Roasted Cauliflower


Spiced Green Bean Casserole


10 Minute Cranberry Sauce with Walnuts

creamed spinach

Creamed Spinach


Easy green beans and tomatoes

garlic butter asparagus

Garlic Butter Asparagus

skillet corn

Skillet corn


Bacon Sweet Potato Skillet


Green beans with Cranberries and Almonds


Caramelized Butternut Squash

Many quick side dishes are prepared in a skillet. I love my Farberware non-stick skillet because it is easy to clean and I don’t need to use oil or butter if I don’t want to.


It is also great for fixing a quick breakfast or reheating all those Thanksgiving leftovers. If you haven’t tried reheating your leftovers on the stove top you are missing out! Try it this weekend and you won’t microwave a leftover ever again!


If you have a favorite holiday dish you can share it on social media with the hashtag #SeasonstoCelebrate and be entered to win Farberware Dishwasher Safe Nonstick 12-Piece Set coated with Teflon® nonstick coating or a Farberware Dishwasher Safe Nonstick Jumbo Cooker.
