18 Christmas Eve Dinners That Basically Make Themselves
It’s the night before Christmas…and you’ve got a ton of stuff to do. Here, 18 Christmas Eve dinner ideas that are special and low-maintenance.
Cacio E Pepe
Start to finish, this decadent (and six-ingredient) dish takes 20 minutes. You can’t go wrong.
SUPER GREEN FRITTATA
Any veggies you have in the fridge will do.
SHEET-PAN LEMON BUTTER VEGGIES AND SAUSAGE
Three cheers for no dishes to wash.
Skillet Gnocchi with Sausage and Broccoli Rabe
Only 30 minutes before you can take a bite out of this one.
15-Minute Skillet Sesame Chicken with Broccoli
Way faster than delivery.
Cheater’s White Wine Coq au Vin
Sheet-Pan Chicken Stir-Fry
More broccoli, please.
Sure, it sounds ambitious, but not if you chop the veggies in advance.

Keep the kids busy (and away from the gifts) by asking them to help roll the spirals.

Easier (and tastier) than takeout.
greek oregano chicken and orzo with tomatoes in garlic oil
Only one pot required.
Easy One-Pan Baked Ziti
Just ten minutes of prep time.
Chicken Enchilada Casserole
This one’s all about the layers. (Did we mention it’s gluten-free?)
Brussels Sprouts Pizza With Balsamic Red Onions
Only takes 35 minutes from start to finish. (Not bad.)
One-Pan Roasted Salmon with Potatoes and Romaine
Don’t forget to save a few bites for Santa.
