Holiday Side Dishes with Bacon

Okay, look. I do not eat bacon at every meal. Or every day. I don’t. But my favorite side dish recipes – the ones that are perfect for your holiday dinner?

THEY ALL HAVE BACON IN THEM.

I don’t know. I don’t have an explanation for this, although my husband has a t-shirt that tries. (If you haven’t guessed, it says, “Bacon makes everything better.” Because, duh.)

So as you make your grocery lists and plan your menus for next week, don’t forget a pound (or two) of bacon. And, for the love of a clean stove top, remember to bake your bacon! (What? You don’t bake your bacon? TRY IT. You can thank me later. Or now. Because you KNOW this is going to be awesome, don’t you?)

I haven’t decided exactly which dishes I’m taking to our three Thanksgiving dinners next week, although Mark’s “famous” baked beans are on the list for my Grandma’s house (lunch) and he’s requested homemade cinnamon rolls for his family at our house (dinner). I haven’t made this loaded potato salad in a while, so that’s one option.

In case you’re still looking for side dishes to serve at your holiday meals, I’ve got five delicious, bacon-y recipes for you.

5 Side Dishes Perfect for Your Holiday Dinner

As I looked through my recipes, I noticed I also have a couple good pumpkin snacks that I haven’t made yet this year. If you need a pumpkin snack for your holiday dinner, try Pumpkin Pie Dip or Pumpkin Pie Crunch (chex mix). Mmmm…

And if you need a veggie tray, why not make one that looks like a turkey?
