Tuesday Recipe: Holiday Menu

This is our final recipe post before Christmas, and because there are so many delicious concoctions out there for serving and feeding guests at Christmastime, we have compiles a selection of our favorites: a drink recipe, a slow-cooker recipe, a dessert recipe and a main dish (or side dish) recipe to enjoy Christmas Eve, Christmas day or as an indulgence after the holidays.

Your ham may already be glazed and covered in pineapple slices, so we have a side dish that will go perfectly with the sweet flavor of your main course. This casserole is garlicy, cheesy and oh-so-creamy; the perfect trifecta! The recipe also includes bacon, so step up your pork game or leave it out and let the potato do all the talking.
