Christmas is a time for families and friends to get together and enjoy reminiscing about the year that has gone by. As a result, you will want to ensure that everyone is well-fed at the same time. Below are a few ideal meal options that are sure to go down well with everyone.
#1 – Appetizers
Chances are that guests will be feeling slightly hungry upon arriving at your home, so it’s a good idea to have a few appetizers on hand. These can include shrimp scampi, cheddar biscuits, pigs in blankets, smoky popcorn, roasted winter squash soup, sweet potato and apple soup, sweet potato biscuit slices topped with pulled pork and coleslaw or salami and cream cheese roll-ups served on salty crackers.
#2 – Main Meals
Although items like roast leg of lamb, roast duck or roast beef are considered traditional at this time of year, why not try something different? Sweet potato casserole, cheesy skillet meatballs with garlic toast or bread, green bean casserole with fried shallots, cherry-glazed rack of lamb or even Bloody Mary flank steak could go down equally well.
#3 – Dessert Options
Traditional hot puddings or desserts such as sticky toffee pudding and custard and fruit cake with marzipan icing normally appeal to everyone. However, adding items such as fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies, Buche de Noel (yule log cake), strawberry Santas, eggnog ice cream, triple ginger soufflé, orange pound cake with fresh strawberry topping or Christmas citrus squares can be a pleasant change from the regular festive food fare.
