Special occasions are a great time for friends and family and, in order to please our guests, we have to be creative when it comes the time to create our menu. But... if the Christmas turkey is a delicious meal, we would sometimes change our habits and eat something else.
Here's a Christmas menu turkey recipes idea including four different dishes from soup to dessert; which are simple to make special occasion cooking recipes but include a nice alternative to the Christmas turkey.
