What are some good side dishes to go with pork chops?

I'm making pork chops for my dad's father's day dinner. What are some good side dishes to accompany baked pork chops?

I would slice brussel sprouts in half and sautee them with garlic and onion. maybe serve it with wild rice. or corn on the cob is always a good option- you could chop some fresh herbs and mix them into the butter to create something a little special. Good luck!

rice and then squash for vegetable.

yellow rice, baby carrots, mashed potatoes, scalloped potatoes.

sweet potatoes

Mashed potatoes


mashed potatoes & gravy or mac & cheese are good - what's his favorite veggie? that is always good lol

My family loves pork chops with applesauce, green beans and Augratin potatoes.

red cabbage

in the south we like greens of any kind. spinach, swiss chard, mustard, turnip or beet. cut out the tough stems and slice them about an inch across the fat part of the leaf, then cook until just tender with a clove or two of garlic ( you don't even have to peel it ) and some hot pepper flakes to taste and a little water in a covered pot. keep checking to see if they need a little more water and they don't get overcooked. put butter on them at the table.

corn or baked potatoes

when i make chops my sides r usually green beans with lemon and garlic butter and and roasted new potatoes with rosemary.
