Tips For Making-Ahead Meals
The idea of making meals ahead of Christmas is pretty great. Less to do on the day so you can sit back and enjoy the moments with your family and friends instead of rushing back and forth to the kitchen. If you are making just for your household, it can be pretty simple.
If you are entertaining for breakfast or brunch, these tips will help:
- Know how many people you are expecting for breakfast or brunch
- Find out if your guests have any dietary needs
- If slow cooking or baking overnight, take care to do this safely
- For bread and baked goods, wait until they cool before putting in an airtight container to prevent sweating
- Consider 2 or 3 different make-ahead dishes if entertaining for a crowd
- Fresh fruit and yogurt are perfect accompaniments
- Cut up fruit the day before or go with single items that require no prep like bananas, apples, mandarins, grapes etc
