Healthy Christmas Holiday Recipes
It’s the best time of year, and we’re here to help your celebrate with all of our healthy Christmas recipes. From prime rib to scalloped potatoes, we have a plethora of recipes to make sure you have a delicious holiday season!

Fresh Ham with Red Pepper Glaze
For this fresh roast ham recipe, look for meat that hasn’t been cured or smoked. Many markets stock fresh hams, but you may need to special-order one to be sure. Ask your butcher to remove the skin and leave a layer of fat to self-baste the ham as it roasts…………………..

Easy Stuffed Mushrooms
This healthy stuffed mushroom appetizer is a nice balance of soft mushrooms, creamy filling and crunchy topping. This combination tastes downright decadent, but it’s actually good for you. Be sure to get all of the moisture out of the chopped mushrooms before moving on to the next step; if not, the filling will be soggy and make the mushroom caps watery………………

Roasted Beet Salad
Walnuts, red onion and dill make this roasted beet salad recipe a fantastic accompaniment to chicken or topping for hummus. If you can’t find beets with greens attached, use 1 pound of beets and 8 ounces of chard leaves……………………

Wedge Salad

I have a recipe for a Classic Salad, Wedge Salad. To make the Wedge Salad you’ll be needing Iceberg Lettuce, Bacon, Dried Sweet Red Onion, Tomatoes, and Balsamic Reduction Syrup. Also included is a recipe for the Blue Cheese Dressing. I love a good fresh Salad! This recipe is also from the CooksRecipes website. At the Cooks site you’ll find a huge selection of recipes to please all Tastes, Diets, or Cuisines so be sure to check it out today for any of your recipe needs! Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2020! https://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html

Wedge Salad
One of life’s simple dining pleasures is this refreshing salad made with a wedge of crisp iceberg lettuce sumptuously topped with creamy, homemade blue cheese dressing, crisp pieces of bacon, diced red onion, juicy, ripe tomato and a drizzle of balsamic reduction syrup.

Recipe Ingredients:
Salad:
1 head of iceberg lettuce, washed, drained and well chilled
Crisp bacon, cut in 1-inch pieces
Diced sweet red onion
Tomato, diced, or halved cherry tomatoes
Balsamic reduction syrup (optional)

Blue Cheese Dressing:
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons minced fresh flat-leaf parsley (1/2 teaspoon dried parsley)
1 teaspoon steak sauce Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic, finely minced to a paste* or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled

Cooking Directions:
1 – For Salad: Several hours before serving, core the iceberg lettuce by slamming the whole head of lettuce, core-side down on the kitchen counter top, then twist out the core. Remove any outer leaves that are undesirable and wash thoroughly, inside and out, with running water. Shake out as much water as possible over the sink and then drain thoroughly on paper towels. Once the lettuce is well-drained, refrigerate in a covered container or sealed plastic bag for several hours or overnight so that it can crisp up (this step is vital for the perfect wedge salad, so don’t skip it).
2 – For Blue Cheese Dressing: Combine all ingredients, except blue cheese, together in a medium mixing bowl, mixing well. Add crumbled blue cheese and stir vigorously to combine well, allowing some crumbles to remain for texture. Refrigerate for at minimum of 1 hour to allow flavors to marry. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
3 – To Serve: Cut the head of lettuce into 1 wedge per person and place each on a chilled serving plate. Drizzle blue cheese dressing over the wedge and sprinkle with the bacon pieces, diced red onion and diced tomatoes, or if using tomato wedges, place them around the lettuce. Lastly, lightly drizzle with balsamic reduction syrup.
4 – Serve immediately.

Healthy Apple Recipes
Find healthy, delicious apple recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Brown Sugar Glazed Apple Cake
This healthier apple cake recipe relies on yogurt and canola oil instead of butter to make it moist. Grated apple and warm spices give it the flavor of fall. To finish off the cake, drizzle on a quick brown sugar glaze before serving……………………..

Brioche French Toast with Griddled Apples
This brioche French toast recipe calls for cooking the bread and the apples over high heat in coconut oil–a fat with a high smoke point that adds its own delicious flavor–for a nicely caramelized crust. This recipe was developed as a deluxe breakfast for a camping trip, but you can also cook it at home on the stovetop………………………

Fall Chopped Salad with Spinach, Butternut Squash, Apples and Cheddar
Who says spinach salads are only for spring? Use autumn’s tender crop of fresh spinach and other seasonal vegetables to make this fall salad with roasted butternut squash, apples, cheddar and pecans. This colorful and healthy salad would be a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving menu, but there’s no reason to save it for holidays–serve it along with chicken or pork for a healthy weeknight dinner, or turn it into a main course by adding some chickpeas or chopped chicken or turkey………………………….
