Herbed Mashed Potatoes with Crispy Bacon

Who doesn’t love mashed potatoes?  Try this delectable Herbed Mashed Potatoes with Crispy Bacon Topping. Seasons Gremolata Infused Olive Oil enhances this classic side dish with its many herbaceous flavors. Inspired by the traditional Milanese herb blend, this infused olive oil combines the delicate aromas of parsley, lemon zest, and fresh garlic. This corn flake and bacon topping adds a unique textural component enhanced by our Bacon Infused Olive Oil for extra flavor. 

Citrus roasted carrots Recipe

This show-stopping side is a delightful combination of sweet and savory flavors. The citrus-roasted carrots benefit from our Blood Orange Olive Oil & Pink Grapefruit Balsamic to create a tart and tangy balance with the sea salt and pumpkin seed brittle. Seasons Blood Orange Infused Oil is made by crushing whole oranges, together with olives using a traditional cold-extraction process, resulting in a crisp, zesty, citrusy-infused olive oil that imparts the bittersweet scent of orange peel into every dish. Our Pink Grapefruit White Balsamic showcases the tartness of ruby red grapefruit balanced with the mellow, slightly sweet acidity of wine grapes. The brittle can be made a day or two in advance to save even more time. Click to view recipe here Citrus Roasted Carrot Salad with Pumpkin Seed Brittle

Apple Pecan Stuffing

Did someone say stuffing? This unique recipe features Apple Pecan Stuffing - the perfect balance of sweet and savory. This Thanksgiving side features a combination of sourdough, rye, and pumpernickel bread, all seasoned with sautéed fennel, apples, and onions. A few A few Porcini and Sage Olive Oil drizzles add to the savory element. The earthy, savory aromas of porcini mushrooms and fresh sage leaves combine beautifully in this infused olive oil. Enhancing the sweet attributes of this recipe is our Apple Cider Vinegar for a touch of mild apple acidity.   

Butternut squash stuffing


Butternut squash is a favorite - and healthy - fall ingredient we love to use on our Thanksgiving dinner menu. This butternut squash and sausage stuffing recipe combines sourdough bread and butternut squash with Italian sausage, leeks, shallots, and garlic. We prefer to use our Rosemary Infused Olive Oil to tie in all the savory elements and highlight the earthiness of the squash. Seasons Pepe e Aglio Seasoning is one of our best-selling spice blends and is absolutely perfect for this stuffing.
