Homemade Holiday Main Dishes
It’s that time of year again when children start acting nice when stores start decorating with twinkling lights and glittery snow when I start dropping gift hints every chance I get…. No? just me?
Homemade Holiday Main Dishes
It’s also time when we break out tattered traditional recipes and head to the grocery store or when we peruse the web and Pinterest for the perfect meal plans. If you’re looking for homemade holiday recipes, look no further! I’ve put together main dish recipes for you. They range from traditional to unconventional because I realize not everyone likes or wants turkey for the holidays. Scan the homemade recipes I have below for your Main Dish, I have Pork, Poultry, Beef, and Seafood for you to choose from.
After you find your homemade holiday main dish, head over to This Gal Cooks, she has homemade holiday appetizers and starters for you. Bookmark our sites and put on your calendar because Friday we’ll be sharing side dishes and desserts to round out your holiday meal plan!
How do I get the recipes?
Simply click on the photo or the recipe title below and it’ll open to that particular recipe.
You can mix and match these with Appetizers, Side Dishes, Main Dishes, and Desserts in this Holiday compilation.
After viewing these recipes, you’ll find more holiday meal inspiration by visiting the links at the end of this post. We hope you enjoy this collection of holiday recipes.

Yum, there’s a lot of great dishes here, but I am especially drawn to the Crockpot Lemon Rosemary Chicken and Chicken Piccata. PS, you were before me at Best of the Weekend!
oh awesome, I’ll head over and check out your links! Thanks for stopping by.
Well, you’ve certainly delighted us all – giving us an assortment of ways to go. Thanks! I love your choices. It makes me think… Do I really want to cook a turkey for Thanksgiving this year? Because I can always get my “turkey fix” at Christmastime or on New Years’s Day. Options. It’s always good to remember we have options, right?
Good ideas and great post, by the way!
Thank you, I peronsally get tired of turkey/chicken so I thought someone else might be the same. Thanks for stopping by.
