Christmas dinner is one of the most important dinners of the year. Not to put any pressure on you! Your family may have a traditional dinner, but if not you can borrow mine.
I love this menu; it’s easy to make, impressive to serve, and delicious to eat. The recipe complement each other, are festive, and look beautiful on your table.
Set your table with your prettiest dishes, stemware, and flatware. Make a centerpiece with candy canes and flowers, or pile Christmas ornaments into a bowl. Put Christmas music on in the background, and if you have a fire in the fireplace, set it ablaze.

When I choose to serve an appetizer for Christmas dinner, this easy and delicious, creamy hot dip is the perfect choice. You can vary it to suit your taste too. You can even leave out the artichokes and add more bell peppers. Serve with thinly sliced sourdough bread or sturdy crackers.
This beautiful ham is shiny with a flavorful, sweet and tart orange glaze. It’s easy to make and will really impress your guests.
If you don’t want to serve mashed potatoes, this is a great recipe. I actually like it getter with ham because the texture is more interesting. And if you don’t have gravy, what’s the point of mashed potatoes?
Every menu needs a green vegetable. And this one is so delicious even the kids will like it. Tender green beans are flavored with nutty and slightly spicy Parmesan cheese for the perfect side dish.
These are the most perfect rolls in the world. The recipe looks complicated, but take it step by step and you can do it! The tender rolls are incredibly buttery and they melt in your mouth.
I love this gorgeous recipe. And if anyone turns up their nose at a gelatin salad, have them try a bite. They will love it. The beautiful pink mold is filled with cherries, pineapple, celery, and almonds.
The only proper dessert for this menu is Christmas cookies. Ask your guests to bring their favorite cookies, then you can spend present unwrapping time eating delicious cookies and enjoying the company.
