Christmas dinner usually centers on an impressive piece of meat (coincidentally, here are some recipes for using the leftovers), but the sides shouldn't be an afterthought. These dishes, from rolls to roasted vegetables, are all worthy of sharing the table with a showstopping holiday main course. When you're done, don't forget dessert!
But first, there's the bread basket to fill. Parker House rolls, made famous some 100 years ago at the Parker House hotel in Boston, are an enduring classic. Slathered with herbed butter and sprinkled with fleur de sel, they are beautifully soft with a chewy crust and will make a lovely addition to your holiday table.
