Two Holiday Dinner Menus for small gatherings complete with the main course, side dishes, dessert, and a little extra!
This year is obviously much different and the need for scaling back the festivities is unavoidable. A whole turkey for a family of four just may be too much. I’m here to share two awesome Holiday Dinner Menus that are perfect for 4-6 people with a little leftover.
Traditional Holiday Dinner Menu
The first menu is a traditional style Thanksgiving meal with turkey wings to replace the whole bird. Not a turkey fan? Try some crispy Herb-Roasted Chicken instead. I suggest serving either with the most amazing sage gravy on the planet. No Thanksgiving menu would be complete without baked mac and cheese, collard greens, or sweet potato pie! I also asked a few friends for some drink and appetizer options that you all will love.
Baked Turkey Wings
Baked Turkey Wings — tender turkey wings with crispy sticky skin, seasoned to perfection and oven-baked; perfect with gravy.
This next menu is a spin on the traditional Christmas prime rib replacing it with a tender top round roast as the main course. However, this is a wonderful menu for those who don’t care for turkey. Both of these holiday dinner menus include recipes that are relatively quick and easy to prepare for a deliciously satisfying smaller holiday feast.
Top Round Roast with Brown Gravy
This Top Round Roast recipe uses the reverse sear method for a tender juicy oven roast. Served with sheet pan vegetables and delicious brown gravy.
