Colcannon is a traditional Irish dish that combines mashed potatoes and cabbage. The addition of green onions and leeks punches up the flavors. It's a delicious side that pairs well with any meat. —Angela Spengler, Clovis, New Mexico
“This yummy side dish will keep everyone wondering what's different, and they'll never guess that it's the apple juice!” says Joan Hallford of North Richland Hills, Texas. “I've had this recipe for over twenty years.

Grits were a breakfast staple when I was growing up. Even today, we still have them about three times a week. The trick with grits is the more you whisk, the creamier they'll be. —Melissa Pelkey Hass, Waleska, Georgia
These light crispy onion rings are sliced thin and spiced just right with garlic powder, cayenne pepper, chili powder and cumin. My family likes them alongside grilled burgers. They're even good as leftovers.
