Finding crowd-pleasing dishes during the holiday season is one of the toughest things about being the host. Everyone wants to make their guests happy, but finding unique dishes to amaze them can be challenging. Therefore, we have compiled a list of excellent Christmas dishes that will delight your family.
Unique Christmas Dishes to Amaze Your Family
Caramelized Onion Tarts with Apples
The best way to make your family dinner is to start with a mouth-watering appetizer. An elegant recipe for crisp tarts is the best way to enjoy perfect blends of sweet and savory. These tasty bites look fantastic and are incredibly easy to make. You need to start by preparing pastry dough (or just buy it at your local store) and cover it with tangy crème fraîche.
Next, you need to cover the pastry with sliced onions and apples and cook them until golden brown. You can cut them into pieces and present them with a nice caramel side dip.
Brown Sugar and Black Pepper Glazed Ham
Adding a unique ham recipe to your Christmas dinner is just as traditional as you can get with your family dinner. We suggest you buy a bone-in ham since it has more flavors to offer. Next, mix mustard, brown sugar, pepper, and salt to create a glaze for the ham.
Remember to score the ham to make it crispier after cooking. Baste the ham multiple times if you want a more succulent flavor in the meat. You can either serve it warm or let it cool down to room temperature before serving. It will be the perfect addition to your Christmas dinner table, which is savory and fancy at the same time.
Roasted Beef with Slow-Cooked Tomatoes and Garlic
We cannot leave out beef from our list of meaty dishes for Christmas. The best part about this dish is that you need only four main ingredients and your slow cooker will do most of the work. Start by roasting beef, garlic cloves, grape tomatoes, and thyme sprigs in a pan for an hour on medium heat.
You can prepare sides or a dessert with the dinner while the dish slow cooks. Wait for the meat to become tender enough and let it cool down for at least 10 minutes. This will help you keep the meat juicy.
Chocolate Bar Fondue
An ideal Christmas dinner is incomplete without a good dessert. All you need to do is melt dark/white chocolate with heavy cream and present it in a bowl. You can add dips and assortments with the chocolate fondue of your choice and give your family dinner a perfect ending.
Strawberries, pound cake cubes of angel food or jumbo marshmallows are all great options to pair with the fondue
The recipes we mentioned on this list are quite easy to make. It will help you host the perfect Christmas dinner without spending hours in the kitchen. Ensure trying all these recipes for your next family dinner, and you will surely win everyone’s hearts.
