» » » » 5 Easy Christmas Eve Dinner Recipes

Our big Christmas dinner is always on Christmas day, but on Christmas Eve my wife and me, along with my immediate family, get together to eat and enjoy time together. In the past, our menu would consist of "finger foods" in cheese dip, cheesy bacon bites, cocktail weenies, cookies, etc.
Thinking for something cheap and easy to make, you don't want to spend your entire Christmas Eve in the kitchen. If you would like to steer away from finger foods, and actually just have a good, filling meal, so...
What should you make for Christmas Eve dinner?
Here I selected 5 Easy Christmas Eve Dinner Recipes suggestions for your menu.

Bacon-Cheddar Meatloaf Recipe

A bite of this meatloaf tastes like a bacon cheeseburger without the bun. Ground beef is mixed with sharp cheddar, grated onion, garlic, and ketchup; formed into a loaf; and covered with bacon slices. After it’s baked, a quick broil makes the bacon on top extra crispy. The whole thing’s so easy you’ll have time to spare, which you could use to make homemade potato tots to serve on the side.

Pernil Asado (Roast Pork Shoulder)
No Puerto Rican christmas is complete without Pernil Asado, roast pork shoulder that is slow roasted and seasoned to perfection with spices like garlic, oregano, orange juice, olive oil and cumin.

We adapted the recipe for lechón, a roasted whole pig, for pork shoulder. This recipe first appeared in our December 2011 issue along with Kathleen Squires's story Island Holiday.

Easy Spinach Lasagna Recipe
Making a proper lasagna is all about a harmonious ratio of filling, cheese, sauce, and noodles. For this spinach and cheese version we’ve skipped the béchamel sauce found in traditional lasagnas to make the dish fast and easy to assemble. Combine frozen spinach, Parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese, and an egg for the filling and layer it with sauce, noodles, and mozzarella cheese.
