Holiday Meal Makeovers

Holiday Meal Makeovers

With the holidays quickly approaching, at-home chefs everywhere are beginning to plan their menus. This year, The Fresh Market encourages foodies to think outside the recipe box by departing from tradition in favor of new flavors! The specialty grocer offers up some unique recipes for “Meal Makeovers” for your holiday feasts – unexpected flavors incorporated into traditional favorites.

New flavors from across the globe will liven up menus and allow for even more creativity in the kitchen. Taste buds are sure to enjoy Curried Sweet Potato Casserole, Truffled Mashed Potatoes and Lemon Dill Green Beans with Pine Nuts and Pecorino, a delicious alternative to traditional green bean casserole. While turkey is tried and true, shake up the menu by preparing an elegant Pork Crown Roast served with Couscous instead of traditional stuffing. Another holiday favorite is Whole Beef Tenderloin as it serves well with a wide range of interesting side dishes.
