The Perfect Christmas Dinner Menu

So, you’re in charge of Christmas dinner this year (how do you feel about that). If this is your first time serving up a feast, let me help you make some delicious choices your guests are going to love. As your guests arrive, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to start with an appetizer. You can go festive with a Christmas-themed app like a Christmas tree charcuterie board or stick to Christmas colours with a red, white and green burrata board.


Next, let’s get into the actual Christmas meal. Naturally, you’re going to want a couple of sides. There are tons of different you can choose from, like roasted veggies, potatoes, or soup. 


Now, it wouldn’t be Christmas without a turkey (or ham) and, most importantly, the stuffing! Stuffing is always the star of the show at my Christmas dinner table, so I suggest not skipping on this one!


Lastly, let’s finish off with some desserts. A classic in my house is chocolate-covered peanut butter balls, or go on a healthier route with dark chocolate with cranberries & almonds. 


Okay, now that we’ve covered all our basics, let’s get into some of these delicious recipes!
