Which holiday? Does it matter? You’ve been to two parties already, and it’s your turn to host. No matter what winter holiday you’re celebrating, your party needs to be tops while keeping you sane. But how do you plan to feed such a massive group of friends, family, and neighbors while enjoying the holiday yourself?

First thing to remember is to enjoy the prep work. This is a happy time, stress and all. Take your time preparing the food and decorating the house. Keep the food easy and still festive with our suggestions. All can be made the morning of, some even the day before, so when it’s time to start the festivities, you’re ready to enjoy your guests!

Sub out the traditional turkey dinner for all natural ground turkey meatballs. These filling, healthier ground turkey meatballs can be served with a variety of sauces; sweet, savory, fruity, spicy, the choice is yours! We suggest this simple Crockpot Sweet ‘n Sour Turkey Meatballs recipe that can be whipped up in under five minutes with only two ingredients. Turkey meatballs can be made in advance to keep prep work down on the day of the party. Keep turkey meatballs warm in the slow cooker and allow guests to serve themselves, freeing up your time to mingle instead of serve food.

Don’t forget the veggie eaters! A classic vegetable platter is a staple at any get together. Arrange your favorite vegetables like carrots, celery, cucumber, broccoli, olives, tomatoes, even bell pepper! Make our Versatile Ranch Veggie Dip to keep guests coming back for more.

Round things out with a sweet-n-savory Holiday Cheese Ball. Whipped up in minutes, this beautiful holiday buffet must-have will keep guests happy and munching the whole night through.
