Easter is a top holiday for serving ham in the United States, and both boneless and bone-in ham are popular choices.

Side dishes are one of the most searched for types of recipes during the week before Easter – and with good reason.

The right side dish can really bring a meal together.

A well thought out side dish can bring needed color to a plate and the flavors can bring out the best in the main item being served. That’s why it’s called an accompaniment and it compliments the dish.

Some of the most popular Easter side dishes served with ham include sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, asparagus, green beans and peas.
