Monday Manners: Southern Side Dishes and Compliments

 With a slow fade from the beach and hot summery sun, to a cool and breezy fall, 
I thought some Southern dish ideas would keep y’all nice and warm!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous Monday!  The weather is beautiful and cool here.  I’m relaxing and waiting for the girls to get up from their naps, so we can go for a walk – a nice, COOL walk, FINALLY!  All of these Southern Side Dishes that I have listed, are sure making me hungry for some Southern yumminess!  You know you’re Southern, when W says to our friend last night at dinner, who was eating chicken nuggets, “Have hushpuppies, Mama, please?”  On her behalf, they did look like hushpuppies…

How delicious do these Southern sides look?  What’s your favorite?  Is there a favorite of yours, that was left off of the list?

Southern Side Dishes and Compliments
  • Apple butter
  • Barbecue sauce – numerous varieties throughout the region, sometimes even within same state; most use a primarily tomato, vinegar, or mustard base

If your stomach isn’t groaning by now, there’s something wrong with you.  Haha.

  1. Yum! Just don't know if there's anything better than biscuits and gravy! The cooler weather hasn't made it to the Gulf Coast yet, but I'm sure ready for it!

  2. I am probably one of the few who never have tried grits or biscuits and gravy. I must confess southern faire restaurants aren't a big draw in SoCal and I have never been to the south. I did make Paula Dean's Chicken Fried Steak a couple weeks ago and although I won't go so far to say it was a flop but I sure need to learn how to fry the southern way! 🙂 xoxo

  3. Every single recipe and photo looks beyond amazing! I am bookmarking this post so I can come back when I need some good recipes. The apple butter might be first on my list 🙂

  4. Hi Ashley! OMG I love this list to pieces, of course cheese grits hold their own special place in my heart, but my fave is PEPPER JELLY! Funny story and I'm sure you have heard this before – we had company last Thursday for the Saints season opener, some colleagues of Matt's who are all from PA. I made brisket po-boys, cheddar grits, and had a bunch of fun snacky-type stuff. Of course I had to break out one of my new jars of pepper jelly from a friend in Louisiana who makes the BEST! So anyways I had two big blocks of cream cheese and emptied the entire jar on top, and had a mixture of crackers to accompany it (there were a lot of people here!) Well, needless to say, it was a hit, and one of the guys came up to me and thanked me for hosting them, and said, "You really didn't have to go to so much trouble…everything is so nice, especially this cheese, it must have been really expensive, it's so rich and delicious tasting!" Well I could have kept my little secret to myself, but I just had to giggle and tell him the truth – it really threw that Northern boy for a loop! HAHA!!

  5. i'm a new follower {not sure how i'm just now finding you}!! my beau is from baltimore and would love you. he insists on putting old bay in everything and refuses to drink a bloody mary that doesn't involve an old bay rim.
