Christmas Prime Rib Roast Looking For Sides

What side dishes would you serve with your Christmas Prime Rib Roast?

  1. I'm serving mine with a jus and sour cream with horseradish sauce, roasted chipollinis and sauteed button mushrooms, rainbow carrots, asparagus with hollandaise, and either a Gruyere duchess potato or Parmesan potato pave.

    That's my main. I'll have Cape Bay scallops wrapped in bacon and clam casino for hors d'oeuvres, a salad of bibb lettuce, bosc pear, candied walnuts, danish blue cheese with a red wine vinaigrette, and an appetizer of a lobster cannelloni. Lots of food so I plan on stretching out the day at a slow pace.

      Agree on the potatoes. Pommes Dauphinois is my go-to for a decadent side. Although, this year, I think I'm going to make it with garlic-infused milk vs. cream.

        I just want to thank you for saying "with a jus" instead of "with an au jus".

        Also, your menu sounds very good. I wish that I could be a guest for such a feast.

        Oh right, sides. I'm really into hashed Brussels sprouts these days, some kind of creamy potato, mushrooms, possibly spiced carrots.

          Well I'm coming to your house.....what time is dinner?

            Two years ago. You're going to need a flux capacitor and a Delorean.

        2. Jus, cranberry-horseradish-wasabi relish, mandatory mashed potatoes, plus a subset of Jamie Oliver's mega vegetable roast (carrots, fennel, Eastham turnip, maybe parsnips, but not beets). Cranberry pie for dessert.

          1. I serve with a traditional wedge salad, duchess potatoes, and asparagus.

            1. MMMmmmm...roasted brussel sprouts tossed with crumbled blue cheese, roasted rosemary potatoes, waldorf salad, and of course, horseradish sauce.

              1. Ina Garten's spinach gratin.
