Christmas Recipes for Any Sized Gathering

Try Cooking a Glazed Ham This Christmas

With Christmas less than a week away, you may still be scrambling to find easy Christmas recipes that you can make for the holidays. Whether you’re serving four or forty, these recipes for Christmas will make a great addition to your meal.

Christmas Dinner Recipes
You may have settled on the menu for Christmas dinner, but do you have a game plan for how and when you’re going to cook it? Prepping in between opening presents and washing up the breakfast dishes often leads to a stressful day. During the holidays, it helps to plan ahead, especially for Christmas dinner. If you’re cooking a turkey from frozen, make sure you take it out at least the night before. Making stuffing? Chop up onions and celery, and tear up your bread the night before as well. This will save you a lot of time come Christmas morning.

Christmas Side Dishes
Christmas side dishes need to be simple and complementary to your main course. If you plan to cook a Christmas ham, consider pairing it with scalloped potatoes, a green bean casserole and maple glazed carrots. Sticking with traditional turkey dinner? Pair it with mashed potatoes, braised cabbage and roasted root vegetables. Almost all Christmas side dishes can be partially prepared ahead of time, giving you more time to spend with your friends and family on the big day. Cut and pare any vegetables you can in the days leading up to Christmas and store them in an airtight container in the fridge.

Christmas Recipe for Glazed Ham
A glazed ham is a nice Christmas recipe alternative to turkey for those who still have Thanksgiving leftovers lurking in their freezer.


  • 1 10-pound fully cooked, boneless ham
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple juice or apple cider
  • 1/2 cup whole grain Dijon mustard
  • 2/3 cup golden brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place ham in roasting pan and spread mustard evenly over surface. Pat brown sugar over mustard coating, pressing firmly to adhere. Drizzle honey evenly over. Bake until ham is well glazed, spooning any mustard and sugar glaze that ends up at bottom of pan, about 30 minutes. Transfer ham to serving platter; let cool at least 25 minutes. Slice ham with sharp knife and serve slightly warm or at room temperature.
Serves 10
