Christmas Meals? - December 25th 2017, 02:51 PM

Every year at Christmas my family gets together and has a relatively great meal. This is probably what I look forward to the most because the food is usually really good AND we get to spend a bit of time together.

Anyway, I am curious what others make for Christmas? My family only really does Dinner but I know people do a number of different meals. I believe my sister in law and her family would make a huge breakfast and include chocolate covered biscuits.

Last night my dad and his partner did a meal for my dad's partner's family and they made:

Garlic and herb roasted prime rib
Bacon wrapped asparagus
Garlic red potatoes

This was such a great meal and I enjoy that they didn't make turkey since I am not a fan.

Tonight, we will be having our meal at my older brother's house and I believe he is going to be making Prime Rib or Filet mignon roast or something like that. Not sure about any sides although I am assuming there will be some kind of asparagus dish.

Please feel free to share any and all meals/dishes you have and, if you want, let me know which meal you look forward to the most!

Also, any desserts you might be having? I am hoping my sister in law will make these truffles that she has made in the past.

(I know some people have probably already celebrated due to the time difference but please feel free to share what you had as well)

I feel like I answered this a long time ago, but that's ok!

Christmas Day: food really consists of appetizers and Chinese food.
Boxing Day: prime rib, beef roast, varies year by year. plenty of delicious sides that also varies.

I have a huge roast on Christmas day! My parents cooked up 3 types of meat, which were pork, turkey and beef. We had roast potatoes, peas, sweetcorn, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, swede, as well as sausage meat and pigs in blankets and stuffing!
We don't have breakfast or anything but we have a small snack in the morning before dinner and then dinner is about 2pm.
For dessert we have chocolate gateau and black forest gateau as well as mince pies.

We don't do a typical Christmas dinner but we have a bunch of family over so we have a lot of different options and such:

-warm brussel sprout salad
-garden salad
-pomegranate spinach salad
-mashed potatoes (plain for the ragoût de boulettes and then hutspot)
-Ragoût de boulettes (it's like a meatball stew that we make at home so it is vegan+gluten free)
-homemade gnocchi (spinach, beet, regular)
-ravioli (red from beets and green from spinach that was stripped with a cheese like filling)
-there is also a stuffed squash
-roasted vegetables
-some stuffing but not much

I watched her make it this time, so I know what goes in it. Cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup, frozen hash browns (thawed), sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, pepper, and either onion powder or garlic salt, and an onion, but we didn't have one. Top with cornflakes or Frenches fried onions (optional) and bake.

Christmas Eve:
we usually have ham and pineapple cassarole. But this year we went the casino Buffet.

Christmas Breakfast:
Usually we have Eggs Benedict...Which my grandma makes differently she scrambles the eggs with ham and then we cut up the English muffin and put Holinday sauce on it.
But this year since we didn't have ham we had crepes.

Dinner:
This year we has ham, mashed potatoes, and pineapple casserole.
But usually we have turkey, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole and stuffing.

I'm going to write this down and I might try and remember to get the ingredients for the next time I go shopping. It won't be the holidays any longer but I want to try this and maybe include it next year.

Had my family dinner and we did have prime rib, parmesan and garlic roasted red potatoes and green beans. We took most of the food home because the family whose house it was at were going out of town and it would go to waste.

We have Christmas breakfast which is basically a fry up (egg, beans, mushrooms, bacon, potato wedges) with a glass of orange juice (we never have juices any other time of year for some reason). We skip lunch and just snack on mince pies if we are peckish. Then we have a traditional turkey dinner in the evening- roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, sprouts, carrots, pigs in blankets, turkey and gravy

We normally have something random on Christmas Eve. THis year we had both a turkey and a ham for Christmas but when there’s just ham I get a Cornish Hen for myself bevsuse I don’t eat pork. Then we had things like potatoes, corn, carrots, bread... things of that nature. And various desserts.

At a wedding I went to the couple decided to have Cornish Hens as the meal. They were actually really good but tiny and I wanted more!

My family ended up having a few different desserts but the one that everyone truly enjoyed was the bread pudding that a family member ended up baking.

The rest of the stuff we had was mostly the same as what we had on the 24th.
