Planning to spend Christmas with only your significant other? Then you need a dinner plan with the servings downsized, and the merriment maximized. Take a peek at the recipes Santa.com has pulled together for you. Grab your aprons and cook together, or surprise your partner with a feast made for two.
Garlic Herb Butter Steak
Steak always feels special. Skip the grill and follow this oven-roasted recipe. Add the garlic-herb butter for flavor worthy of a chef’s kiss. (Then steal one from yours, maybe?)
Salmon and Asparagus
Think succulent salmon, asparagus, lemon, and dill. This easy and flavor-packed dish is perfect for the health-minded and ready in no time, with minimal ingredients.
Chicken Pot Pies
Forgo the huge pot pie for personal-sized ones with this easy-to-follow recipe. The individual ramekins make this really pretty to plate and elevate it from everyday to extraordinary.
Herb Roasted Turkey Breast
Skip the whole turkey and opt for a roasted breast with a festive sprinkling of fresh herbs on top. Bonus: You might have enough left over for sandwiches for the next day.
Whole Roasted Cauliflower with Pistachio Pesto
Cauliflower is having a moment. Take it for a spin with this skillet-baked dish with a unique, delicious pesto sauce. Serving it in the skillet means less dishes and more time for cuddling.
Invite Rachael Ray over for your meal—at least in spirit. This meaty pasta dish is her personal Christmas Day go-to, and you can easily control how much you make. She suggests a half pound of pasta for every three people—so follow that and you’ll have some yummy leftovers to look forward to.
French Onion Soup
Serve up this soul-warming soup and set the mood. Savory beef stock, caramelized onions, and that delicious, Gruyere-covered crouton are your cue to cozy up together.
