Stand-Out Holiday Side Dishes

Nov 07, 2016 03:38AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Food




During the holidays, the main dish usually steals the spotlight. This year, turn the tables in your own kitchen and make the sides the stars of the show with just a couple everyday ingredients.

Cream and milk are kitchen staples all year long, but they become even more important during the holidays. Whether you are using DairyPure brand Heavy Whipping Cream to prepare delicious and creamy soups and sides – like Garlic Mashed Potatoes or Corn Chowder – or using half & half or milk in your guests’ coffee, they’re perfect and versatile ingredients to always have on-hand. Just make sure to save enough milk for Santa Claus.

The only farm-to-fridge dairy products backed by the exclusive Five-Point Purity Promise, DairyPure creams and milk contain no artificial growth hormones, are tested for antibiotics, are continually quality tested to ensure purity, only come from cows fed a healthy diet and are cold-shipped from your trusted dairy.

For more recipes for the holidays and every day, visit DairyPure.com, and find DairyPure on Facebook and Pinterest.
