However, I’ve realized that most people don’t have very good cooking skills or are too busy. So, how do you make your Christmas dinner without spending all day in the kitchen? Well, here are some great ideas that will get your cooking into the Christmas spirit.
High Quality Lean Turkey
Start out with a high quality lean turkey. Sometimes you can find this at your local big box store such as Target or Wal-Mart. Just cook it on the griddle to cook the skin tender and juicy. You can also opt for a turkey that has been brined, but if you’re not going to be using it in the next days, simply use a lean turkey breast. This will be a healthier choice that you can feel good about eating.
Along with your turkey, you will want to add some other items to your grill. First, I would recommend roasting some vegetables. I like to roast carrots and sweet potatoes because they are very rich in vitamins and easy to carve. Just use a sharp knife to go through them and keep in the juices while they are roasting. After the vegetables are roasted, throw in your veggies and beans.
Along with the vegetables, I usually get some chopped mushrooms, red pepper, and olives. I mix them together and serve with a baked potato and green salad. This is a super simple meal that everyone will be raving about. It’s also a fantastic way to get your kids involved in the festivities.
Ham Along With Some Fresh Salsa
Here are a few Keto Christmas dinner ideas that I have used before. First, I have made a delicious ham along with some fresh salsa. Next, I have made some delicious tortilla chips with some ground beef and some spinach. Last, I have served with some steamed broccoli with a cream cheese dressing. These dishes have been tasty and filling as well. Just be sure not to overcook them or they will become overcooked.
The key to making these recipes taste great is to incorporate the freshest ingredients possible. When you purchase your turkey at the store, make sure you check it for freshness. If you don’t want to wait until New Years, you can still get that juicy thigh meat. Just marinate it in olive oil for an hour or so, and your dinner should be good as new.
As you can see, there are some great keto Christmas dinner ideas out there for you to try. As long as you avoid adding the overindulgence of butter and other high-fat items, you will be well on your way to enjoying a healthy and fit Christmas dinner. Don’t forget to take advantage of the low carb Christmas snacks that are available as well!
