Christmas weekend is upon us! This is the perfect time to gather friends and family for home-cooked meals, sharing the joy of the season. We’ve gathered some special occasion recipes to inspire your menus, from a lively Friday evening to a cozy, comforting Sunday night. Happy holidays!
|Eggnog with Nutmeg and Cinnamon
Nothing represents the holidays quite like rich, creamy eggnog. This one is topped with sweetened whipped cream and freshly ground spices for a cozy feel. Celebrate the occasion by serving some festive appetizers and desserts as well — we recommend this Peppered Beef Tenderloin Crostini and some simple Ginger Cookies.
|Apple and Sausage Patties
Adding grated apple to pork sausage yields tangy, flavorful breakfast patties — easy to make and perfect for a holiday breakfast buffet. Pair them with a delicious strata, homemade Brown-Sugar-Raisin Bread and a mug of Holiday Coffee.
|Herb-Crusted Rack of Lamb with Filled Pasta Sheets
Christmas weekend warrants a meal worthy of a special occasion. This Herb-Crusted Rack of Lamb with Filled Pasta Sheets is easy to prepare, yet impressive — after all, Chef Thomas Keller created it. Serve with sweet and savory Gingered Baby Carrots, and finish the meal with decadent Sticky Toffee Pudding.
