4 Scrumptious Spring Sides to Cook and Hold


This spring, if you plan to fill your hot food holding cabinets with catering treats, why not try one of these four scrumptious spring-themed sides?

Spring Side #1: Baked Stuffed Artichokes with Pecorino

Just fifteen minutes of hands-on prep and a little over an hour in the oven, these little beauties are easy to make but oh, so impressive to serve. Packed with flavors and boasting a mix of delightful textures, they'll likely become one of your new spring favorites. 

Spring Side #2: Lemon Mushroom Orzo

Though this dish can also be served cold in a pinch, it's best when enjoyed hot. Thanks to your high-quality food warmer, however, cooking this ahead of time and holding it until it's time to serve will be absolutely no problem.

Spring Side #3: Lemon and Parsley Skillet-Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

The flavor combination of this dish is absolutely insane. Please note that if you're planning a busy afternoon or evening prior to cooking up this dish, the recipe does note that you can pre-boil the potatoes up to four hours ahead of time and leave them safely resting at room temperature until you're ready to drop them into the skillet.

Spring Side #4: Blistered Asparagus

Asparagus is absolutely one of our favorite spring vegetables, and they show to best advantage in this recipe from Epicurious.

Cooking asparagus hot and fast in a skillet develops their delicate flavor without overcooking. Tossing them in a light soy dressing with crushed peanuts and shredded coconut adds a subtle but addictive crunch.
