Add These Holiday Dishes to Your Recipe Box This Season
November 30, 2020
With the holiday season upon us, it’s time to start thinking about your holiday feasts! Whether you’ll be celebrating exclusively with your household, video chatting with family, or commemorating the holidays in a different way, the menu is an important part of making these special days still feel festive. Here are a few recipes to try this year!
Cranberry-Brie Bites [Delish]
Dinner is served, starting with these unique appetizers! A twist on the classic baked brie, these cranberry-brie “bites” feature flaky crescent roll dough wrapped around a gooey center of cheese and topped with a sweet cranberry sauce. Both homemade and canned sauces are totally acceptable!
Classic Stuffing [Bon Appetit]
When in doubt, just add carbs. This traditional stuffing recipe will serve as the perfect side to any main dish you choose. It features all that’s good in life and holiday cooking—white bread, ample amounts of butter, and fresh herbs like rosemary and sage.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts [Food Network]
Of course, just because it’s the holidays doesn’t mean you should skip your veggies! This simple Brussels sprouts recipe will make it easy to sneak in a serving. Simply trim and toss them in olive oil, salt, and pepper, then roast them in the oven until tender. It couldn’t be easier to craft a delicious (and healthy) side dish.
Baked Ham With Brown Sugar Glaze [Spend With Pennies]
Now for the main event! While this recipe for baked ham is a cinch to make, its savory-meets-sweet flavors earn it a spot at the special-occasion table. Simply brush a glaze of pineapple juice and Dijon mustard all over a pre-cooked ham, then swaddle the ham in tin foil and bake it until the glaze caramelizes.
Sparkling Cranberry Cheesecake [Delish]
Want to make the dessert course feel a little fancy? Skip your traditional pie or cookies and opt for this sparkling cranberry cheesecake. Not only will it bookend the meal nicely—with your cranberry-brie bites as the appetizer—but it’s also stunning, sprinkled with sparkling sugar and fresh, plump cranberries. It’s an indulgent way to cap off your holiday celebrations.
