What To Serve With a Mississippi Roast – 13 Delicious Sides

If you’re wondering what to serve with your Mississippi roast, you’ve come to the right place.

In this article, I list 13 of the most popular side dishes for Mississippi roast.

In a rush? Here’s the short answer.

The best side dishes to serve with the Mississippi roast are buttered garlic noodles, Hawaiian buns, mashed potato, and three-bean salad. You can also serve cauliflower rice, buttermilk biscuits, and apple coleslaw. For a really indulgent side, go for a lemon risotto or a cheesy hashbrown bake.

Ready? Let’s jump right in.

Classic mashed potatoes

I could never say no to a tender Mississippi roast, especially when it’s paired with a fluffy mashed potato on the side.

Mash potatoes are a well-loved addition to any table.

And this recipe from Spend with pennies is an old favorite. 

Oh and here’s a tip for you.

Use Russet potatoes if you want a more starchy mash and Yukons for a more buttery one.

Apple coleslaw 

Take a chance on this apple coleslaw.

It’s healthy, simple, and elegant.

The apples are fresh and crunchy, and the Greek yogurt dressing has a tang that works well with the savory flavors of the Mississippi roast.

And as an added bonus, you can make this slaw ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about too much extra cooking. 

Brighten your meal with this delightful apple coleslaw.

Hawaiian buns

Why not serve your tender Mississippi roast in a soft Hawaiian bun?

These Hawaiian buns are light and fluffy, with a delicious sweetness coming through from the secret ingredient – pineapple juice!

They’re perfect for a do-it-yourself slider station at your next summer garden party.

Creamy polenta with sauteed mushrooms

Looking for your next comfort food obsession?

Try this combo: Mississippi roast and creamy polenta with sauteed mushrooms.

You’ll fall in love with it. It’s warm, hearty, and filling.

The polenta will mix with all the gravy from the roast, while the mushroom adds an earthy, umami flavor. 

Add this top-tier polenta with sauteed mushrooms to your menu and you’ve got a homey meal guaranteed to bring smiles.

Lemon parmesan risotto

If you’re feeling really indulgent then risotto makes a great side for Mississippi pot roast.

The roast and the risotto are both quite heavy dishes, but the acidity from the ranch flavors in the gravy and the lemon in the risotto keep things from getting too rich. 

Next time you have a date coming over, whip up this lemon risotto with peas for a fancy meal that’s sure to impress!

Butter dipped biscuits

There’s nothing lovelier than having a buttery biscuit to mop up all the leftover juices from your Mississippi pot roast.

They’re great for gatherings because these biscuits are easy to make in large batches.

All you need to do is mix the batter and pour it into the baking dish – no kneading, rolling, or shaping required.

Three bean salad

Mississippi roast can be very rich, so there’ll be days where you want something refreshing to go alongside it.

This three-bean salad is crunchy, colorful, and easy to make.

It comes together in under 10 minutes (including making the dressing).

And you don’t have to stop at three beans, you can add as many different types of beans as you want.

The only bean I would that has to be in there is the green bean – it’s my favorite!

Spicy potato soft tacos

If you’re a fan of Taco Bell then you’re going to love this one.

Warm crisp potatoes along with shredded iceberg lettuce and a chipotle sauce. Add a few spoonfuls of Mississippi roast beef to the taco and you’ll have the best taco you’ve ever tasted!

Move over pulled pork, there’s a new taco filling in town.

Cheesy hashbrown casserole

Who says you can’t have breakfast for dinner?

This casserole is like an easy version of potato gratin, with grated potato instead of sliced potato. 

The soft, cheesy goodness combined with the zesty, meaty flavors of the Mississippi roast is a match made in heaven.

Sound good? You’ll love Miss in the kitchen’s cheesy hashbrown casserole.

Psst… macaroni and cheese would work brilliantly too.

Cilantro lime cauliflower rice

Cauliflower rice is a great side if you want something low-carb and light. 

It will soak up all the flavors of the beef, just like normal rice, but won’t make you feel full and heavy afterwards. 

It’s also a sure-fire way of sneaking veggies onto the plate.

This cilantro lime cauliflower rice is flavorful and bright.

Garlic butter noodles

After a long hard day, I always crave pasta.

But plain pasta doesn’t really match up to the bold flavors of Mississippi roast. 

You need to spruce the noodles up a bit. 

Enter – garlic butter noodles from salt and lavender

The noodles absorb the flavors of the butter and garlic so beautifully, plus the extra moisture keeps the pasta from feeling dry. YUM.

Jicama fries

If you’ve had enough french fries and sweet potato fries – try jicama fries.

They’re crunchy and… kind of addicting!

These jicama fries are seasoned with garlic, paprika, and chili powder, making them a great spicy side to a tangy Mississippi pot roast.

Honey glazed carrots

Oven-roasted vegetables are always a safe choice for side dishes. And these glazed roasted carrots are no exception.

Ant the best thing about this recipe – there’s zero prep.

Simply grab a bag of baby carrots and lather them in the glaze.

No chopping or slicing required.
