Christmas Recipes for Multiple Food Allergies

Allergy-Safe Christmas Entrees, Side Dishes and Breakfasts

By

Updated December 23, 2008

While Christmas traditions differ between families and cultures, Christmas offers a lot of flexibility in main dish options (unlike, for instance, Thanksgiving). While this can be a boon when you're cooking for family members or guests with allergies, some other Christmas food traditions -- candy, chocolate, cookies, beverages, and the like -- can be a little more difficult to manage. Try some of these allergy-friendly recipes from around the About.com network at your holiday table. Looking for more gluten-free recipes? Check out Nancy Lapid's 40 Gluten-Free Holiday Recipes. And make sure you check out my collection of allergy-friendly Christmas desserts and cookies too!

Main Dishes

Poultry (especially geese, turkey, or ducks) and ham are probably the most traditional Christmas entrees. But other options are available -- roasted meats (like pork loin or roast beef) or vegetarian main dishes like stuffed vegetables.

Side Dishes

Vegetables and starches to finish off your Christmas dinner.

Holiday Beverages

Hot mulled wine, eggnog, and cider are all traditional drinks of the season. Enjoy safer versions of some of these popular beverages.

Christmas Breakfast

Many families have a tradition of eating a leisurely breakfast before or after opening presents on Christmas morning. Try some of these breakfast recipes to make the morning special.
