Totally serious! I didn't know it was the contest-- I was at work away from the comp and was planning. Good suggestions, guys! Thanks!

There are 100 entries as of right now!! Maybe this is just a test of the new Holiday category system. ;)

Bacon Garlic Brussel sprouts are great. Cut bacon into lardons, render in pan, remove lardons, add some butter, saute the halved and cored sprouts, add emince of garlic, when garlic becomes toasted, add lardons and toss for a few minutes. Finish with salt and pepper. Serve hot.

Green beans, sautéed lightly in olive oil and tossed with toasted slivered almonds, dash cumin, dash nutmeg, dash salt, and about 1-2 tsp lemon juice.

Maple roasted carrots. Cut 1 lb. carrots into sticks and toss with 2 Tbls maple syrup, 1 Tbls olive oil, 1/8 tsp allspice, 1/2 tsp ground chipotle, and salt to taste. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet or pan. Bake at 425F about 20min or until carrots are tender.

Roasted Brussell sprouts. Roll them onto a sheet pan, toss with olive oil and sea salt. Roast for 30 minutes at 375 degrees while you make the gravy and carve the turkey! They taste incredibly different, thankfully so, from the traditional boiled sprouts.
