Christmas Dinner Ideas

We don’t have a “traditional” dinner for Christmas. One year we had prime rib for Thanksgiving and turkey for Christmas. I am not a big red meat person. Honestly, all I ever want to eat is a baked potato or eat an entire bowl of olives. 

This is our favorite recipe for Beef Tenderloin. Don’t skip the anchovies. It is an indiscernible flavor, not fish but a complement. Umami

This leek and wild mushroom stuffing is incredible with turkey but would also be great with a roast or pork.  The kind of mushroom changes year to year and is often a mix of what is available. We’ve been making it for years.  Absolute favorite.  

The stuffing pairs especially nice with this show stopper.  A Turkey Roulade from who else, Ina.

The most decadent of decadent. Truly a special occasion dish. Ina’s Truffle Butter Tagliarelle.
