While Thanksgiving has turkey, Christmas is all about ham. The sweet and salty dinner dish can be prepared in a multitude of ways and is always a crowd pleaser. So whether you are cooking one up in the crock pot or baking all day, here is a Christmas ham dinner menu that will surely be a hit this Christmas.

Honey Butter Ham

Did your mouth water after you read that line? We hope so. This traditional style ham recipe is all about simplicity and ease (most hams in your grocery stores are pre-cooked, they simply need heated). After all, Christmas dinner doesn't have to be difficult. It should be easy enough to complete at one time, and good enough to keep your family wanting more (and it's great for leftovers!).

Potatoes Grand Mere

Grand Mere translates into "grandmother" in French. Maybe that's because this dish is like what grandma used to make? We actually don't know, but what we do know is that it's soooo good that, as a side, it'll get eaten up in no time. And, it fits into the mantra: easy, quick, and all at once. No fuss, no muss, just creamy and delicious potatoes. Recipe!

Christmas Green Beans

Christmas dinner has to have greens. Not only are they good for you, they taste good too. This recipe calls for the addition of carrots and charmoula sauce. Not familiar with charmoula sauce? It's very similar to pesto, but the North African version, consisting of garlic, cumin, fresh herbs, oil, and lemon juice. Add a little paprika for a tiny bit of heat, and this side is even good cold. Oh and don't forget the rolls!
