You may know what you’re having as the main course for your Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas Day meal, but do you have enough sides? I’ve got several ideas for you here, and I think you’ll find something for every member of your family.
Make Ahead Christmas Side Dish Recipes
These Christmas side dish recipes can be made ahead of the big day and placed in the refrigerator or freezer. This is what helps me most when I’m getting things planned and organized. When I cook ahead, that means I have the mess and clean up done ahead of time too! Having things I am simply warming up saves me time and allows me the luxury of enjoying my family.
