Christmas Ham Roast

What to Serve With a Holiday Ham

It's a confession that more than a few people are willing to admit: sometimes, the idea of a turkey as the star of the holiday meal doesn't sound all that appealing. So it goes this year for Maryvee, who writes in:

My family does not want turkey this year for Christmas, so I am having spiral ham. What sides would be good?

I've been a longtime fan of the holiday ham myself. If you're serving up a country ham of sorts, I might go the Southern route, seeking out classic Low-Country foods as accompaniment: creamed collard greens, andouille sausage and corn bread on the side, and a classic pecan pie to end the meal. You could also ride the wave of nostalgic, Mad Men-era meals, with 1950s-inspired accoutrements such as simply prepared peas, glazed carrots, and an herbed potato gratin. Of course, don't forget the party dip and martinis!

Pitch in below with your suggestions for the perfect sides to go with this year's holiday ham.

Don't be afraid to ask the YumSugar community any and all of your holiday conundrums.
