With a delicious mix of recipes collected from my favourite tried + true food bloggers, this Christmas dinner menu is sure to be a hit!
We always enjoy our big Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve, it’s the way my Mom always did it growing up. A big dinner, surrounded by good food and great company sure gives us something special to look forward to on Christmas Eve – I think it’s the perfect way to stretch out the Christmas festivities just a little longer. Plus, I love that we can spend our Christmas Day enjoying all sorts of fun family time together, munching on delicious leftovers instead of cooking away in the kitchen.
Like so many other things this year, our Christmas dinner is going to look a little different. Though we’ll sure miss gathering with our family + friends, I’m determined to make the most of this quieter Christmas with our little family this year. Instead of our traditional turkey with all the fixins’ I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to try something a little different this year. So, I scoured my favourite food blogs, collecting all of the festive, and perhaps a little less traditional, recipes that caught my eye. I didn’t venture far as I wanted to make sure I was finding recipes that I could trust to turn out perfectly (after all, we can only have the best for Christmas dinner!). Then, with a little help from Brady and Carson, I narrowed our list down to create a Christmas dinner menu that we all cannot wait to eat. Just in case you find yourself looking for a new recipe to try or some ideas to change up your Christmas dinner this year, I thought I’d share my collection of Christmas dinner recipes today:

Though I don’t spend much time in the kitchen on Christmas Day, I do love to serve a special breakfast/ brunch. I find it a perfect way to wind down and settle into our day together after all of the excitement of opening gifts.
I hope this collection of recipes leaves you feeling inspired to try something new as you plan your own Christmas dinner this year!
Wishing you SUCH a lovely day!
I can't wait to hear your thoughts!
