5 Recipes for Christmas Dishes

Christmas is a time for family, friends and, of course, food! There are so many delicious Christmas dishes to choose from, it can be hard to decide what to make. To help you out, we've compiled a list of 5 recipes for Christmas dishes from around the world.

1.Roast turkey:

A classic Christmas dish in the United States, roast turkey is usually served with stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce. For preparing roast turkey here's what you need to do:

First, choose the right turkey. You'll want to select a bird that is the appropriate size for your needs. If you're feeding a large crowd, go for a larger turkey. If you're only cooking for a few people, a smaller bird will do.

Next, prepare your turkey for roasting. This means removing the giblets and neck, as well as any excess fat. You'll also want to rinse the turkey inside and out, and then pat it dry.

Now it's time to stuff your turkey. You can use a traditional stuffing recipe, or get creative and stuff it with your favorite ingredients. Just be sure to stuff the turkey loosely, as packed stuffing can lead to a dry bird.

Once your turkey is stuffed, it's time to roast it. Place the turkey in a roasting pan, breast side up, and tent it loosely with aluminum foil. Roast the turkey according to your recipe or package directions.

About halfway through the cooking time, remove the foil so the skin can brown. And be sure to baste the turkey periodically with the pan juices to keep it moist.

When the turkey is cooked through, remove it from the oven and let it rest for 20-30 minutes before carving. This will give the juices a chance to redistribute, resulting in a juicier, more flavorful bird.

So there you have it! With a little advance planning, you can easily roast a delicious turkey that will be the star of your holiday meal.

2.Roast beef:

Another popular option in the US, roast beef is often served with mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and gravy.

A roast beef recipe is the perfect way to impress your guests at your next Christmas dinner party. The key to a perfect roast beef is to start with a high-quality piece of meat. Look for a cut of beef that has a good amount of marbling, which will help to keep the meat moist and flavorful as it cooks. Season the beef generously with salt and pepper, and then roast it in a hot oven until it reaches the desired level of doneness. Let the roast rest for a few minutes before carving, and then enjoy!

3.Ham:

A holiday staple in many parts of the world, ham is often baked or smoked and can be served with a variety of sides.

A Ham is a cut of meat taken from the hind leg of a pig. It is typically cured and then smoked, although it can also be cooked without curing or smoking. Ham is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of dishes, from simple sandwiches to more complex casseroles.

To cook a Ham, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the ham on a rack in a roasting pan and add 1/2 cup of water to the bottom of the pan. Bake the ham for approximately 20 minutes per pound, or until the internal temperature of the ham reaches 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the Ham is cooked, it can be sliced and served as is, or used as an ingredient in a variety of dishes.

4.Seafood:

A popular choice in many coastal areas, seafood dishes like shrimp, lobster and crab are often served at Christmas.

One simple seafood recipe is to bake salmon fillets in the oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the salmon fillets on the baking sheet, and season with salt, pepper, and your favorite herbs. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through.

5.Vegetarian:

For those who don't eat meat, there are plenty of delicious vegetarian options available. Popular dishes include roasted vegetables, grains and risottos.

There are many different ways to get the nutrients you need on a vegetarian diet. One way is to eat a variety of plant-based foods, including vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds. Another way is to use supplements and fortified foods.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
