Last-minute Christmas dinner recipes

Just like last year, Christmas has crept up on us with little warning, minus the fact that the stores have been decorated since before Halloween. If you have gotten this close to Christmas without planning your feast, here is a roundup of our favorite recipes to make your Christmas dinner complete.

Christmas dinner

Start with an appetizer everyone will love. Try this super easy and tasty buffalo chicken dip recipe from SheKnows.

For the main course, prime rib is a must-have Christmas entrée. Be sure to include a few hearty sides, some rolls and a few bottles of wine. These side options will go perfectly with your perfectly roasted beef.

Of course no Christmas meal is complete without dessert. Serve up a homemade pecan pie and some fresh baked sugar cookies. Add some fun to dinner especially if kids are involved by having frosting, candies and sprinkles so everyone can decorate their own cookies.
