Our Christmas Dinner Recipes collection has you covered on all the classic mains—Christmas glazed ham, prime rib roast with Yorkshire pudding, and roasted turkey! Plus, this year, we’ve included some smaller mains for smaller gatherings. And don’t forget about the delicious sides from honey-glazed carrots to roasted Brussels sprouts!
The most traditional holiday dish is the roast goose. Most grocers can supply a frozen goose at any time; during the holidays fresh birds are usually available. Even better is a free-range goose, which will be more tender and taste better.

This simple, elegant dish that impresses with little effort. With just a few ingredients—fresh rosemary, thyme, and roasted garlic—you impart wonderful flavor that melds deliciously with the tender juiciness of the tenderloin.
Tourtière is a popular meat-filled pie enjoyed at Christmas. A French-Canadian staple, this double-crusted savory pie is made with a ground pork, warm spices, and mashed potatoes, plus a rich pastry crust that melts in your mouth.
This classic cornbread dressing (or stuffing) is a favorite during the holidays. Buttery with a nice blend of sausage and herbs, this hearty dressing’s surprise flavor is the apples, which add a crisp, fresh taste.
Or, try something different (and delicious!) with carrots. With only five ingredients, our Carrot Casserole is simple and inexpensive to make, yet looks lovely.
We’ve served this carrot bake to folks who weren’t particularly fond of carrots, and it was a big hit.
