I need a side item idea...

I'm making meatloaf, green bean casserole, rolls...and one other side item. Any suggestions for something that would go well with it and is delicious? :)

  • Here's an easy and yummy way to serve mashed. Buy a tub of the already made mashed. Add some butter, whipped cream cheese and a dry packet of ranch dressing (use the amounts that your family might enjoy) mix and spread in a casserole dish. Bake in the oven for 2o mins ( @350) I have served this at Christmas, at potlucks etc...people rave!

  • Why do you need another side item? You have a meat, a starch & a veggie.

    If it were me, i would do something fresh. Like sliced tomatoes or a salad.

  • How about sauteed carrots with salt and pepper and a little brown sugar...kinda like candied carrots =)

  • you could do a corn bread casserole, broccoli and cheese, a green salad with strawberries and almonds topped with a sweet dressing, I like asparagus drizzeled in hollandaise sauce, scalloped potatoes, mac n cheese, boiled and salted red potatoes, or grilled veggies in a light flavored olive oil
