Holiday Food Guide

Holiday Food Guide - Table

It’s that time of year when family and friends come together to enjoy the company of one another and reminisce about times gone by. One thing all holiday gatherings tend to have in common is food. Rather you’ve been asked to bring a dish to a party or are hosting the gala of the year, the Dairy Council of Utah and Nevada has created a holiday guide full of recipes sure to impress all in attendance. We’ve done the planning so you can spend more time enjoying winter sports or conversing with friends and loved ones. These recipes – from appetizers to desserts – have been hand picked and created by the Dairy Council Staff to provide delicious and healthy options to brighten any party.


Appetizers are great as finger foods or a sampler for your guests before the real feast begins. Here are some of our favorite recipes and foods to get the conversations started and prime the palates of our guests. Jazz up a classic cheese tray with a homemade cheese spread or a spicy chili queso dip.

Main Entrée and Sides:

No dinner is complete without a show stopping entrée. Often we rely on turkey or ham to fulfill this task, but why not change things up and offer a rich, tasty roast? No matter how delicious this roast is, it needs some sides to brighten up the dinner plate. We’ve selected tasty sides to add a little green or warmth to your dinner table.

The best part of any holiday meal is the dessert. I guess you can say we have saved the best for last and rounded out our holiday guide with some mouth-watering desserts. Whether you tend to go for a rich pie or want something more refreshing like panna cotta, our staff has a recipe for you.
