What’s on your Christmas dinner menu? The traditional favorites seem to be beef – either a rib roast or beef tenderloin – or turkey. I grew up with turkey on Christmas until Mom realized that beef was a much easier meal. Yes, it’s more expensive but she figured it was worth it. I’ve put together two menus to help you enjoy a delicious Noël. Feel free to use one in its entirety, pick and choose or mix and match. Whatever you cook this Christmas, have a wonderful holiday!
Delicious Beef Tenderloin for Christmas Dinner
Toss up a salad with with Lemony Kale & Radicchio Salad to start.
Treat everyone to a beautiful Beef Tenderloin. Serve it with Red Wine Mushroom Sauce or Roasted Mushrooms, Leeks, Shallots & Pearl Onions (I recommend the latter.) Add some Roasted Brussels Sprouts and a Nye Family favorite … Twice-Baked Potatoes.
Finish with a sweet pud. Try my creamy White Chocolate & Cranberry Trifle, homey Cranberry Clafoutis or my fabulous Chocolate-Espresso Cheesecake.
A Tasty Turkey for Christmas
Start with a delicious salad of Roasted Cauliflower, Radicchio & Arugula.
Move on to Roast Turkey with Giblet Gravy. Make it easy (there’s a lot going on!) and skip the stuffing. Instead serve the turkey with Wild Rice Pilaf with Roasted Mushrooms & Kale. Don’t forget the Cranberry Sauce or, for something a little different, Cranberry Chutney.
Wishing you a joyful and delicious Christmas!
