10 x tasty ideas for potatoes as a side dish (for Christmas dinner)

Must Try

Potatoes at your Christmas dinner are guaranteed to be a success. Where we used to put the Pommes duchesse in the oven, the potato is now the option for endless recipes. We’ve selected Culy’s favorite side dish ideas for you.

Pureed or fried, classic or never-before-tasted: these side dishes will make your Christmas menu one for the books!

1. Puree

We kick off with an old acquaintance: the mashed potatoes. If you eat it weekly, then some nutritional value is understandable, but in the case of Christmas, all registers can be pulled open as far as we’re concerned. For example the French version with a lot of cheese called aligot . Anti-stress tip: keep mashed potatoes warm with these tips , and if there’s any left over (probably not), freeze it right away .

2. Out of the oven

A big dinner takes a lot of time. The oven is the perfect solution for this. Difficult to get them crispy? Not with these tips . But when that works, these crispy oven potatoes are a real hit during the Christmas dinner.

The perfect potato side dish with fish: Nigel Slater potato cakes with feta. Fresh, crunchy and slightly sweet due to the addition of carrot. With these cookies, we can make it Christmas every day.

4. Crushed

The secret behind soft inside and ultimate crispy outside? Bake twice and, yes, crush. In this recipe of crushed potato as a side dish, we opt for the fragrant sage; feel free to use other fresh herbs for a perfect match with your other Christmas recipes.
