It happens every year. The holidays come around and turkeys get paranoid…stuffing is sprawled all over the place…and green bean casserole has somehow become a thing.
I mean, you literally just finished your last leftover turkey sandwich and someone is trying to shove more of that big, dry bird in your face again. You haven’t even gotten the cranberry sauce stain out of favorite shirt, yet, for crying out loud.
What in the name of a fat lineman’s butt-pad is going on here?!!! Who do I have to talk to to get an addendum to this antiquated menu? The clear answer, here, folks is first name “NO”, last name “BODY”. If you want to lighten things up in your kitchen for the holidays, just go right ahead and do it. And if you need some assistance, of course, I’ve got you covered.
Here are 7 non-traditional holiday meal ideas that will keep things interesting and your family going back for seconds…or fourths!!!

BREAKFAST FOR DINNER: I don’t know about you, but I’ve always loved breakfast for dinner. There’s something comforting about good, hearty breakfast food later in the day. Incorporate this for a comforting holiday meal.
SEAFOOD / FISH FRY: Fresh fried fish and other seafood are great for family occasions. Why not switch thnigs up and bring that feeling to the holidays.
CHINESE BUFFET: “A Christmas Story” jokes aside, a Chinese Buffet for a holiday meal sounds great! Chinese food is a great escape from the traditional holiday spread.
BARBECUE BONANZA: If you’re serious about your barbecue, you love to fire up the grill in the cold! Get that smoke in the air and dazzle your family with barbecue for the holiday meal.
HEALTHY & DELICIOUS: Soups, salads, wraps and more! What a great way to eat well and not feel the pain afterward. And you’d probably not be sleep by halftime of the game!
WING BAR: Keep your holiday meal fun and informal with a chicken wing bar. Fill your table with as many of your favorite flavors as you wish. If you’re gonna eat, drink and watch football…it may as well be wings!
