HAPPY HOLIDAYS, CRUSHERS! I love this season so much because it’s full of fun activities, intimate times with loved ones, and delicious foods. The possibilities for making great meals and even better memories are endless!
If you’re looking for some easy breakfast meals, creative snacks and appetizers, impressive dinner recipes, or decadent treats then you’ve come to the right place! Below are twenty-five delicious and festive recipes that are perfect for this holiday season.
Start Your Day Right:
Overnight French Toast Casserole
This overnight breakfast recipe will make your life so much easier! Prepare the french toast the night before, wake up and stick it in the oven, and relax with your morning coffee or tea while it bakes.
Big Family-Style Breakfast Sheet Pan
If you have a lot of people to feed this holiday season, then this breakfast sheet pan recipe is for you! The combination here is SUPER tasty, packed full of protein, and versatile.
Skillet Berry Baked Pancake
This is one of my favorite breakfast recipes. It’s delicious with ripe, juicy berries combined with freshly grated lemon zest, giving this baked pancake a fresh-picked, light (yet indulgent) vibe!
Baked Feta Egg Breakfast
This may be one of the easiest breakfast recipes in this list (but it still tastes amazing!). Create something FUN and NEW with your family in the kitchen this holiday season.

Not only will your taste buds thank you for this recipe, but your nose will, too, because it smells heavenly while cooking! You can make it at any time and enjoy it later because it stores excellently in the freezer for up to two months.
Black Bean + Jalapeno Frittata
Breakfast with a bit of kick! It’s fast enough for a work-week morning if you have 20 minutes to make breakfast and delicious enough for weekend brunch prepared for company.
Flex Your Creative Muscle to Begin the Festivities…
Christmas Tree Potato Pizzas
These are fun and easy to make, even with the kiddos helping you. Plus, children are more likely to try foods if we get them involved in the making and cooking process, so invite them into the kitchen with you to prepare healthy, delicious snacks!
Cucumber Christmas Trees
Of course, I wasn’t going to let the fun Christmas festivities end with just one Christmas tree snack! These cucumber Christmas tree skewers are fun and easy to assemble and make perfect healthy snacks for any celebration.
Clean & Fresh Christmas Salad with Homemade Orange Honey Dressing
Instead of adding to the heavy foods that fill holiday meals, how about surprising the guests with this fresh, bright, and delicious salad?! Everyone will love it, and the flavors are so unique.
Grinch Stuffed Potatoes
You will love these Grinch stuffed potatoes just as much as you enjoy any Grinch movie! The DELICIOUS limey and tangy avocado cream top these crispy and salty little potatoes are perfect for your holiday plans this week.
Quail Egg Snowmen
Can you tell I love making fun and festive snacks? These are just SO cute, and I couldn’t resist! Not only are they tasty, but quail eggs are also SUPER nutritious, making for a perfect snack.
Loaded Roasted Garlic Hummus
The last snack and appetizer (but certainly not least) is this greek-style, loaded hummus. The result is not only fresh and delicious, but your presentation will be stunning and super impressive.

Meatballs in Pomegranate Sauce
Savory and festive, these meatballs genuinely belong on your holiday menu list. But you may want to double or triple the recipe if you have extra people to serve because they’ll disappear fast!

Get in touch with your adventurous side with this one because the ingredients go surprisingly well together! Plus, it’s loaded with vitamins, minerals, and plant compounds that your body needs.
Seared Scallops with Homemade Pesto + Cherry Tomatoes
