If you’ve ever been involved in cooking a holiday meal, you know that time is precious and getting a head start makes for a much more enjoyable day! Save the essentials for the day-of and get ahead on the sides with these easy make-ahead dishes.
Here are a few of our tips for making your holiday dinner run smoothly:
Assembling a charcuterie board is an act of TLC. Don’t get caught slicing apples last minute while your meat overcooks! With our nonbrowning apples, you can assemble your platter and keep it covered and cool until it’s time for cocktail hour.
Stuffing is one of those things that gets better as it sits. We like to assemble the night before baking and let it sit in the fridge overnight for the bread to soak up all the liquid. The next day, all you have to do is pop it in the oven and serve warm!
These adorable treats are both festive and easy to make a day or two ahead. Plus, they’re a fun activity to get your kids involved! Dip and decorate to your heart’s content, then keep refrigerated until you’re ready to enjoy.
