Brussel Sprouts with pan fried Pancetta is a winner in Holiday Recipes, with Italian Cheese and fresh dill weed it's an all time favorite in Side Dish Recipes to add to your Choices in Main Dish Recipes for the Holiday.

At our family's table during a Holiday Dinner it's not complete without this favorite in Side Dish Recipes. With these little tasty bites I like to choose the smallest of the bunch as these are more calmer in taste and not as bitter. A tip in cooking hints that I've learned over the years, is to add one tablespoon of sugar into the pot while pre boiling the brussel sprouts, this takes out the bitterness.


Our family's favorite in Holiday Recipes would have to be a Roast Turkey with Turkey Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Baby Carrots with Dill sauce and this winning choice in Side Dish Recipes and these cheesy vegetables, Pan Fried Pancetta with Italian Cheese makes a favorite in Main Dish Recipes. Another suggestion would be to make these with a Prime Rib Roast for another great pick in Holiday Recipes with your menu for Christmas Recipes or Thanksgiving Recipes.


To make your menu complete, I would say to add a favorite from the Dessert Recipes. For he Chocolate Lovers I like to make one of the decadent picks in Chocolate Desserts, the Chocolate Trifle or Belgian Chocolate Jelly Roll and let the smiles begin!
