Top Picks for a Great Christmas Dinner Menu

Christmas is the time of celebration with gifts, feast, music, and decorations! So, put the lights on, turn up the music, and craft out the classic Christmas dinner for your guests to commemorate the festive spirit of the holidays! Here are a few ideas to help you get started with preparing a simple but classic Christmas menu for the grand dinner.

Starters –

Prawn cocktail – start off your Christmas dinner with a dash of zing with some lovely and fresh shrimps. Use a mixture of king prawns and shrimps for a flavorful texture and taste in this classic starter. Chill your prawn cocktail before serving, and don’t forget to garnish it with a slice of lime, a few coriander leaves, and red chilies.

Main Course –

Honey glazed turkey – this is a must in your Christmas menu! Turkey is the traditional Christmas bird and the seasonal celebration cannot be complete without this poultry to dress the center of the table. To make a honey glazed turkey, you will need a butter muslin cloth, which is available at most fabric shops. For your adult guests, serve some young, fruity Merlot to go with your honey glazed turkey.

Sides –

Creamy mashed potatoes – this is another signature dish that’s easy to whip up. Mix in some freshly chopped parsley, red chili flakes, and a dollop of butter to complement your creamy mashed potatoes.
Glazed Carrots – some crunchy glazed carrots to go with the turkey in your Christmas menu would be wonderful! Toss them in melted butter over medium heat and pour some chicken broth to boil the carrots mildly. Allow most of the moisture to evaporate by tossing the carrots lightly, and a plate of freshly glazed carrots is ready! Feel free to season the carrots with oregano and garlic flakes!

Desserts –

Cherry cheesecake – bring the Christmas decoration at your home to life with a rich red cherry cheesecake adorning your Christmas dinner table. Chill it till the right temperature to retain the moisture of the cheesecake.

Christmas pudding – what can be a more befitting to culminate your Christmas celebration than Christmas pudding? Add generous portions of rum to your Christmas pudding to make it taste fuller and more robust. Don’t forget the customary vodka though! Omit the alcohol portion of this dessert if you are serving young guests.

Feel free to experiment and add a unique twist to traditional Christmas dishes. Merry Christmas to all!
