With another fantastic Thanksgiving in the books, it occurs to me that the best sides from Thursday’s meal would be just as welcome at a holiday table with Prime Rib. My friend Elisha shared a snap from her Thanksgiving table, one to which turkey was not invited—in its place a perfectly prepared Prime Rib from Harvey’s Guss.

Prime Rib is what my family has served for Christmas dinner for generations. And so of course I immediately zoned in on the touch of genius that her husband Jason’s bacon-wrapped asparagus brings to the party. Add to that my favorite Persian-inspired cranberry sauce with pomegranate molasses and mint, grilled Brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, and an Italian bread and sausage stuffing (made with sage sausage from Gwen’s butcher shop), and we’re ready to relive Thanksgiving’s greatest hits come Christmas dinner. There is little I love more than family traditions, especially those shared around the table. What are your favorites?
