Wouldn’t you agree?

That Christmas dinner need not be complicated.

(nods heads up and down)

I feel like we already ran a food marathon back in November. And truth, a part of me is still recovering from the meat sweats. Between the holiday ugly Christmas sweater parties, New Years on the horizon, and simply just relishing the fact that this is truly a magical time of year, I am okay with a simple spread on Christmas day. Just between you and I, we may or may not be having sloppy joes. GASP!

Now, if you aren’t the sloppy joe type, I totally get it. I do appreciate the ceremony of creating a beautiful spread that the big ol’ JC would give two forks up. So, I’ve rounded up Ten Elegant Christmas Entree Recipes that could easily be the star at your feast. These recipes are from some of my favorite food bloggers, and I must say are simply beautiful, but obtainable.

Take a look around, wipe the drool from your mouth, and if all else fails, there’s always sloppy joes.
