what to serve with a whole roasted pigRunning out of side dish ideas for your whole roasted pig? Now that’s going to be a problem. We know that you can eat that roast as is but there are still some of us who love other treats to enjoy with the pork, too. Let us give you another batch of suggestions, then! Check out this list that we’ve compiled just for you.

 

1. Mashed Potatoes

 

Mashed potato is an American dinner staple and there’s no reason why you should not pair it with a pig roast. Simply boil peeled potatoes in a pot for about 15 to 20 minutes. While you’re waiting for them to soften, melt some butter and warm some cream in a pan. Drain your potatoes and then transfer them into a large bowl. Pour the butter and cream mixture and mash the potatoes. Add milk while you’re beating the potatoes. Finally, season with salt and pepper to taste.

 

2. Grilled Vegetable Platter

 

You should never forget about the vegetables. Just get a large bowl and combine some honey, olive oil, garlic powder, dried oregano, pepper, balsamic vinegar and salt. Stir them thoroughly to evenly distribute the flavors. Put about three tablespoons of this mixture in a plastic bag. Add the vegetables (asparagus, red pepper, carrots, summer squash and onion) in the bag and leave them soaked for about 1 to 2 hours. Grill the veggies for about 8 to 12 minutes until they’re crispy.

 

3. Apricot, Berry and Jicama Salad With Honey-Lime Dressing

 

In a large bowl, combine halved apricots or nectarines, hulled strawberries, fresh raspberries, fresh blueberries, peeled jicama and jalapeno chili. Whisk some lime juice, honey and vegetable oil in a bowl. Pour this dressing into the salad and toss the ingredients gently. Add sunflower seeds and serve.

 

4. Baked Macaroni and Cheese

 

Cook your macaroni al dente. For the sauce, just get a pot and melt the butter. Whisk some flour and mustard in and continue whisking for about five minutes. Add in the some milk, bay leaf, onion and paprika. Let the mixture simmer for 10 minutes then remove the bay leaf. Temper the egg and pour about ¾ of the cheese sauce. Fold your macaroni noodles into the mixture and transfer it to a casserole. Top with the remaining sauce and let it bake for about 30 minutes.

 

5. Stuffed Peppers

 

Remove the peppers’ seeds and ribs with a sharp paring knife. To make the stuffing, brown some ground beef in a frying pan. Add some onion and garlic. Saute the ingredients for about 3 to 4 minutes. Add some Cajun rub, rice, black beans, salsa and corn into the mixture. Cook until the ingredients are blended. Fill your red bell peppers with the stuffing and then grill them for 10 to 15 minutes, at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Sprinkle with grated cheese to make then even more delish!
