Baked Brie Bites
There’s nothing like a good appetizer to get your holiday meal off right, and you simply cannot go wrong with this recipe. Not only are they crisp and buttery, but Baked Brie Bites come in four different flavors: garlic butter herb, maple bacon with pecans, cranberry, and apricot walnut.
Maple Glazed Ham
There are countless options you can serve for the main course at Christmas, and one of them is a ham. This recipe is easy yet delicious. The secret’s in the glaze and it’s made up of only six ingredients: maple syrup, brown sugar, Dijon, orange zest, fresh rosemary and black pepper. Your mouth is probably watering just thinking about it.
This is a classic. One of the biggest things to consider before you get started is how many people you want to feed. A good rule of thumb is 1.5 pounds of turkey per person. That means if you’re feeding six, you’d want to start with a nine-pound bird. After that, grab your butter, salt, pepper, parsley, thyme, rosemary, oregano, sage, garlic, lemon, orange, and bay leaves so you can follow the recipe and make a great dinner.
Gravy is quite simply a perfect topper to both your meat and sides. And homemade gravy? Even better. Best of all, it’s both easy to make and incredibly tasty. All you need are turkey drippings, fat, all-purpose flour, fresh parsley, fresh thyme, black pepper, and kosher salt. Then just follow the directions and your family will love it.
