Published December 7, 2021

Whether you’re looking to switch up your traditional holiday menu, or are searching for inspiration for a festive brunch, we’ve compiled five menus to help you plan your holiday meals.

An Almost Traditional Holiday Menu

From a lemony turkey tenderloin to a classic snow-capped yule log, this decadent holiday menu contains all of your family’s favourite fixings with a WW twist. Let your slow cooker help you with meal prep this year by taking care of the stuffing while you do the rest!

A Vegetarian FestiveFeast

No turkey? No problem! This meat-free holiday menu will leave everyone feeling satisfied and satiated after the big meal. In the absence of a traditional main dish, we’ve curated a selection of hearty side dishes featuring some of our favourite festive produce. Finish your meal with a decadent Spiced Pear Upside-Down Cake, that is sure to become a holiday classic.

A Comforting Holiday Meal

Not every holiday meal needs to be a fancy affair. Put on your favourite comfy outfit, get cozy, and enjoy this selection of comforting holiday foods. Our lightened up Turkey Quebec Tourtiere, paired with cheesy roasted cauliflower, and garlic mashed potatoes capture the essence of a classic holiday dinner with a cozytwist. We’ve chosen a classic easy eggnog as the accompanying cocktail but feel free to substitute with your favourite beverage.

Hosting a Holiday Brunch

Holiday meals don’t have to always take place at dinner time. Holiday brunches can be just as festive and fun, especially when you can prep dishes a head of time. The french toast casserole uses the always handy slow cooker, and the breakfast rolls can be prepped and tossed in the oven closer to meal time. Muffins and donuts can also be baked ahead of time to share at brunch or for another morning.
