For me, Christmas day itself is the gift that keeps on giving. It’s a day full of family, friends and memorable nostalgic feelings. But come Christmas dinner – we’re all looking forward to a night filled with the best holiday foods. I’m talking slices of meltingly tender prime rib, cheesy stuffed mushrooms, honey-glazed carrots, and festive drinks to keep the party going.

Unique Christmas Dinner Ideas (That Aren’t Turkey or Prime Rib)
