Wisconsin-Inspired Christmas Dinner Menu Ideas and Recipes
For my family the holidays, as long as I can remember, have been a melding of traditional and non-traditional recipes, mainly because my family (and extended family) hail from different cultural roots.
Certainly, the thing that binds us together is our love of each other but also our love of food.
So, when folks ask me what my Christmas dinner menu consists of, I have to be honest and say multicultural. From Cuban, to German, to Croatian, to Mexican, to Italian, and more, it’s never the same from year to year, except for a few must-make recipes. And, that’s okay with me.
It’s also a great opportunity every year to share new recipes that I’ve introduced on Wisconsin Homemaker. Many have now become our family favorite recipes that continue to get rave reviews year in and year out.
Sill in a quandary of what to make for your holiday celebrations? Here are a few of my favorite recipes for a Wisconsin-inspired Christmas dinner menu:
