The Ultimate Christmas Dinner Recipe Guide!



This is Landen from Measure and Whisk dropping in to give you a fabulous list of Christmas Dinner menu items!  

Christmas dinner has long been one of my favorite dinners.  I have had many kinds of Christmas dinners over the years, including one with fish sticks, because my mom forgot to get anything for dinner, and last year, where my husband and I made homemade hamburgers and deep fried french fries.  

Despite my history of untraditional holiday dinners, I typically prefer a traditional Christmas dinner with a nice meat main dish and lots of delicious sides.  This list has some real winners on it.  Many of them I have made, love, and would highly recommend because they will make your Christmas dinner a serious show stopper.  For the ones that I haven't made, I can't wait to try them out, because they look delicious!  


You should definitely keep this list close by as you start planning your holiday dinner! 
(hint: pin it to your favorite recipes Pinterest board so you don't lose it!)

About the Curator: 

Landen runs Measure and Whisk, a cooking blog with a focus on real food. She is a firm believer that quality is superior to quantity, and prefers small amounts of good food over large quantities of cheap food. Deeply disappointed in cheap bacon, she prefers to buy $6 bacon less frequently. Because of this, she typically cooks vegetarian meals for her family.    

Her blog also features photos of her baby, Fox, and suggestions on how to live an eco-friendly and minimalist life, both in and out of the kitchen. Follow her on Pinterest and Instagram for beautiful food photos and pictures of baby Fox.
