You can make an easy Christmas dinner menu with plenty of appetizers, show-stopping main dishes, and indulging desserts. It’s super simple to conjure up a feast that everyone will enjoy, using fresh and healthy ingredients. Here are some easy Christmas recipes that will give you more time to relax and plan the best holiday ever.
