Since the community quarantines are already eased down, families and friends can now somehow celebrate the holidays together, including Christmas Eve. Bring your loved ones and friends together to celebrate the season this year by throwing an unforgettable Christmas party!


It's a good idea to start preparing a month in advance for the holiday season. If you arrange the party now, you'll be able to invite your guests early enough so that they won't have any other plans on the day of the celebration. Plus, you can also have enough time to decide about your Christmas party theme (if there is any) and your Christmas Eve dinner ideas, which are the most important of all.

You might feel a bit baffled and overwhelmed with all the preparations you need to do for the holiday.


So, if you're planning to throw that Christmas Eve party for your friends and family, here are some of the Christmas Eve recipes you can include for the yuletide feast!


Christmas Menu Ideas Everybody Will Love

We understand how sweeping it is to host a Christmas eve dinner party for your friends and loved ones. That's why we collected some great holiday recipes that you can try this season.

1. Perfect Prime Rib

There is nothing like prime rib, also known as standing rib roast, to wow your guests. Even though your visitors will believe you slaved away in the kitchen for hours, it will be a closely-guarded secret to you that your oven performed all the work.

After patting the meat dry, place it on a baking sheet, and cover it with cheesecloth or a clean tea towel for up to seven days in the refrigerator. Before cooking, pat the meat dry and season with salt and pepper. Serve it with mashed potatoes, and enjoy!

2. Cranberry Brie Bites

Despite this recipe's brie and crescent roll dough, the most significant aspect is its balance and adaptability. Make your unique concoctions of creamy, sweet, salty, and herby flavors! During the holiday party, this finger food is a must-have appetizer, and they go in a matter of seconds. Aside from being adorable, the creamy goat cheese is probably the reason why it's one of the perfect dinner snacks for yuletide parties.

3. Herb roasted pork tenderloin with preserves

Planning a Christmas Eve supper can wait until after you've finished wrapping gifts and preparing cookies. When it comes to Christmas dinner, we've got you covered—this is a great recipe that calls only 20 minutes to prepare!

4. Holiday dinner chicken gnocchi soup

Gnocchi is the pinnacle of the pasta food chain, and it is a delectable treat. It's nostalgic, comfortable, and easy to make, which is just what we're looking for in a holiday table. You can use chicken thighs to make this soup tastier.

5. Hearty seafood chowder

Are you worrying that your dish will not be good until the next day? Well, you can find that this creamy, delicious soup is even better than the first time. Scallops and flaky whitefish are also excellent fits for this preparation. For an even richer soup, use half-and-half or heavy cream for the milk. This is a perfect partner for crusty bread.

6. Five cheese spinach and artichoke dip

This can be the news star to your Christmas Eve dinner party as this is one of the most requested dips in any event. It's a standout because it has five different kinds of cheese, including cream cheese. When hosting a party, you will like the ease of serving it right from the slow cooker, making that cleanup in just a snap.

7. Pasta anchovy with garlic breadcrumbs

Need an Italian recipe that will fit the feast of seven fishes? You can achieve it by using this holiday menu. Toss breadcrumbs with lemon zest and fresh garlic into the oven until they're toasted and crispy, then garnish this spicy anchovy pasta dish with them.

8. Yule Log Cake

If you want to add some French cuisine to your Christmas Eve dinner party menu, you can make this traditional French Christmas cake easy dessert that all your guests will surely love. Take your time, but don't be intimidated by this rolling cake! It may seem absurd to wrap a warm cake in a towel, but the process is much simpler than you may expect. Then transfer it onto a kitchen towel and let it cool for just a few minutes. Warm cakes are more malleable and less prone to cracking than cold cakes.

9. Roasted red potatoes

If your guests love meat and potatoes so much, then this Christmas recipe is worth trying! Potatoes that are perfectly browned and crispy may be achieved. It's all about roasting your potatoes at a high temperature and placing them cut side down. With the potatoes in close touch with the sheet pan, they'll get some great browning without overcooking. Putting them all together takes a little more time, but the end product is well worth the effort.

10. Butternut squash soup with bacon

A rich, creamy soup is the perfect way to begin your dinner. It's a fantastic meal for a cozy Christmas Eve supper with the family and friends. If you don't eat it all in one sitting, you may want to prepare a double batch and store it for later! Add some crispy bacon on top of it to make it yummier.

11. Lemon Basil Shrimp Risotto

Filipinos love rice. It is a staple food in our country. If you want to bring your rice meal to the next level, you must try this Italian-American Risotto recipe that will let you and your guest experience taste the Feast of the Seven Fishes. Plus, this will already make a delicious main dish for the holidays.


You may save time and money by organizing your meals in advance. As a bonus, it provides you with more control over your eating habits and encourages you to make better choices regularly. Even if you're cooking for one or two people or a big party, preparing meals is a beautiful place to begin if you want to improve your food choices.


The holiday season is commonly the event where we indulge in many great dishes and cuisines that sometimes we already forget to have a healthy diet. So, make sure to include some healthy recipes to your Christmas Eve dinner menu this holiday season.
