Let’s kick it old school and dive into nostalgic Christmas recipes that bring all the cozy memories to life. From apps to sides to mains to desserts, these dishes get a bit of a modern-day twist that we promise is just as delicious as what you remember, and maybe even more so.
Who doesn’t love a good pig in a blanket to set the mood? These appetizers are updated by using uncased sausage meat that gets spiced up with Dijon mustard and herbs to make every mouthful magical.
This Waldorf salad gets a reboot with crisp apples, celery, and pea shoots, crunchy pecans, dried cranberries, and a Greek yogurt–based recipe that’s fresh and flavourful. The perfect lighter side to your richer holiday dishes.
We bet you can’t stop at one piping-hot crisp-on-the-outside, soft-in-the-middle popover! And who could blame you? These get smoked cheddar and fresh thyme to make them even more alluring, with an optional drizzle of maple syrup. Sopping up gravy never had it so good!
Few things pair as well as beef and spiced dried-mushroom powder. The two together are a powerhouse of flavour. Add to this a mushroom stroganoff pan sauce and you have the most umami-packed main your holiday table has ever seen. Watch them clear their plates!
Think of this nostalgic Christmas dessert as a type of panna cotta only without the gelatin used to thicken the custard. This version gets a delicious infusion of vanilla and is topped with a ginger-cranberry-lemon compote that’s as pretty as a picture!
