Easy and Delicious this creamy, cheesy, side dish is the perfect side dish for whatever you are serving this holiday season.

It's time to share Holiday Side Dishes......
Heather of Hezzi D's Books and Cooks invited us to join her in sharing some Holiday Side Dishes to help relieve some of the stress our readers may have over the upcoming Holiday Season.  Planning is the key to a relaxed and enjoyable holiday gathering.  

I also find that dishes that are easy to throw together or that can be made ahead of time but still appear elegant and beautiful, like this Spinach Souffle, make my life much easier and enable me to enjoy my company rather than being stuck in the kitchen.  

Let's take a look at what the others are serving up as Holiday Sides this year.......

I am seeing a lot of recipes that I can't wait to try on that list!!! Pomegranate Acorn Squash with Burrata, Corn Souffle, and Copycat Red Lobster Biscuits are at the top of my list.  What sounds the best to you?

This recipe that I'm sharing with you today was adapted from one by one of my blogging friends, Liz of That Skinny Chick Can Bake.  

We will be posting more Holiday Sides on Wednesday and Friday this week so make sure you stop back again for a peek.
