My sister-in-law is making a spiral ham and scalloped sweet and white potatoes for Christmas. I’m supposed to bring something to go with and I’m not feeling very inspired. My mother-in-law is allergic to pepper of any kind, so no added pepper or peppers can be in the dish. Right now all I can think of is green beans and that just seems so boring for a holiday dinner.
I once had roasted brussels sprouts in some sort of yummy glaze, but never got the recipe and to this day wish I had.
Mixture of beets and turnips or something like that? root vegetables sounds good but I don’t really have a recipe and I’m not sure if it goes with spiral ham.
> Any ideas?
