Whether you’re celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or maybe just the end of a big year, you’ll want to share a meal that marks the occasion. We’re talking a big, bronzed holiday ham, perfectly braised lamb shanks, or (for the non-meat eaters) a whole roasted fish. It’s ok that these dishes take a little extra time and effort to make it to the table. It's part of the celebration.

If you'd like some inspiration for centerpiece-worthy entrees, here are nine dishes we know your guests will love. And if none of these tickle your fancy, don't forget you can always peruse our Automagic Holiday Menu Maker!
