What can I serve instead of turkey?
When most people think of a traditional Christmas dinner, they think of the classics like turkey as the main dish on the holiday table. But if you don’t want turkey (or can’t find it), there are plenty of other delicious options you can try. So if you’re looking to try something different this year, I’m sharing some delicious recipes here! All tasty ideas that will make your guests forget all about turkey.
Prime Rib Menu for Christmas
One of our most favourite special dinners is prime rib. I realize this cut of meat is expensive, so if we do have it, we save it for special occasions like Christmas Day or New Years. It’s such a treat. But you can always make roast beef instead…it’s a delicious option!
Ham Menu for Christmas
Another great option for Christmas dinner is always a baked glazed ham. This Christmas Ham is SO delicious…it’s smothered in an orange-honey-brown sugar glaze that’s always a hit!
White Lasagna Christmas Dinner Menu
Pasta is always a nice option for Christmas dinner. A white lasagna is a little extra special…with a creamy, rich sauce, this dish is so good. Make it with chicken or ground pork.
Beef Ragu Menu for Christmas
This Beef Ragu is making an appearance at our Christmas this year…it’s so rich and flavourful and feels special this time of year.
Roasted Pork For Christmas Dinner
Pork roasts (or tenderloin) are a great option for Christmas dinner too! Roast it with apples and seasonal root vegetables.
