Best of 2011-Side Dishes/Vegetables

Today the theme for Countdown to 2012 is Crockpot Dishes.  Alas, I did not post any recipes using a crockpot on my blog this year.  I know that there will be many great crockpot recipe links posted over at Finding Joy in My Kitchen today so head on over for some great stuff.

Since I have no crockpot recipes, I decided that today I would do a list of what I think are the best sidedish/vegetable recipes that I posted this year.

Fried Rice-Japanese Style.  This is the side dish that I usually serve with the Simmered Chinese Chicken or anything Oriental.  This can be made into a main dish by adding diced cooked chicken, meat or ham to it.

Green Beans and Corn with Bacon, Onion and Garlic.  My hubby doesn't care for green beans much and will only eat the canned ones.  I am always trying new ways to fix them.  This was one of my successes this year.

Serbian Cabbage.  This dish didn't photograph very well, but it is a great one to know about.  You can serve this to people who says they don't like cabbage, and they will eat it.  I often don't say what it is until people have had a chance to taste it.  It hardly tastes like cabbage at all.  This is a baked dish, and can go in the oven with meat or poultry.

Not That Green Bean Casserole.  This is the casserole to make if you like green bean casserole, but you don't want to use commercial cream soup.  This one is made with sour cream.  It is easy and very good.

Loaded Mashed Potatoes.  This recipe was part of the November Crazy Cooking Challenge.  These were different from my usual mashed potatoes and were very good.  There are links to 79 other mashed potato recipes with lots of good ideas in this post.

Well, these are my top 5 side dish/vegetable recipes for 2011.  Tomorrow I will  be back with the Countdown to 2012 and the best desserts of 2011.  I posted many sweets so they will be hard to narrow down.
