With tons of recipes promising scrumptious food this holiday season, planning what to serve for the big meal can be a daunting task. From appetizers to drinks, here are 7 classic holiday food we know will never go wrong!

These bite-sized goodness should be light enough to still make space for the big meal yet filling enough to tidy everyone over until the real munch. More importantly, they should be quite tasty!

Traditional Sliced Honey Glazed Ham Ready for the Holidays


They come in all sizes, shapes and glaze but in the end, it’s really all about the coming together of flavors. You should know, other red meats are also fast becoming Christmas staples like beef, lamb and even goat!



Because not everyone will be pleased with an all-red-meat Christmas table, turkey, chicken and goose have also long entered the holiday table. And much like their red meat counterparts, they also need a little loving on the flavor department, usually courtesy of the stuffing.
