How to Pick Side Dishes for a New Year's Eve Party

Step 1

Cook a pot of black eyed peas seasoned with ham bone or ham hock. Black eyed peas are a New Year's tradition and are believed to bring good luck for the new year.

Step 2

Make or buy macaroni and cheese. For cheese lovers everywhere, this side dish is a favorite! Bring out the kid in everyone with this pasta dish.

Step 3

Collard greens are a southern dish that can be prepared or purchased from a restaurant or store. They are a tasty side dish that goes well with turkey, fried chicken, baked chicken, pork chops and more.

Step 4

Prepare green beans and corn on the cob. These side dishes go along well with barbeque, baked chicken, fish and seafood.

Step 5

Dinner rolls should be a staple. Serve dinner rolls on a platter with margarine or butter, and a knife for spreading.

Step 6

Mashed potatoes or baked potatoes complement steaks, barbeque, seafood and chicken (baked, rotisserie, fried). Both are easy to make in bulk and serve. Baked potatoes should be served with margarine or butter, sour cream, cheese, chives and bacon bits.

Step 7

Prepare a nice side salad. Throw in cheese, tomatoes, fresh lettuce, cucumbers, green onions, green and red bell peppers and small, yellow peppers for a spicy kick.
