89 Christmas Dinner Ideas That Rival What’s Under the Tree
We’ve given you tons of Christmas gift ideas, but enough with the presents—what about Christmas dinner ideas? Maybe this year calls for a grand entrée (like a succulent prime rib roast or wine-braised short ribs). Or maybe what you really want is a Christmas dinner menu loaded with snacks you can make days ahead of time. With less time stressing in the kitchen, you’ll have ample opportunity to mingle over starters, like this Gruyère-filled onion dip or a classic aioli destined for crunchy crudités. Or maybe you want to buck convention. A giant cheesy, potato rosti next to a rack of pistachio-crusted short ribs? A samosa tart paired with creamy soup? These are all very good Christmas food ideas. Whatever route you choose, Christmas cookies are the logical end to any Christmas meal—and if you give your guests a couple, they won’t even care that you forgot to get them gifts.
