You don’t need to throw a massive New Year’s Eve bash to ring in the new year successfully. An intimate dinner with your nearest and dearest can be just as celebratory. From zesty champagne chicken to creamy lobster bisque, New Year’s Eve entrées are taking over TikTok. Make your last meal of the year one to remember with these five New Year’s Eve dinner recipes!
Give your traditional chicken entrée an upgrade with this delicious recipe. First, season the chicken with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. After flavoring, cook the chicken in a mix of shallots, fresh garlic, crushed red pepper, champagne and heavy cream, followed by sautéed mushrooms.
Lobster bisque is a perfect addition to your New Year’s Eve “shell-ebration.” First, separate the meat from each lobster tail’s shell. Next, add the shells to a pot with cold water, thyme, tarragon and a bay leaf. Then let it simmer for 30 minutes. Make a broth from diced onion, carrots, celery, melted butter, minced garlic, tomato paste, flour and Sherry wine. Strain the lobster stock into the broth. Then blend until smooth before adding heavy cream and chopped cooked lobster meat.
This recipe is positively amazing. Begin by adding water, wine and uncooked pasta to a pot. Next, strain the pasta and add butter, chili flakes, red wine and pasta water. Sprinkle on some parmesan cheese before serving, and enjoy!
The holidays wouldn’t feel the same without a honey-baked ham. Begin by glazing the ham with a mix of honey and pineapple juice before placing it in the oven. Once cooked, coat the ham with boiled pineapple juice combined with salt, garlic, brown sugar and cane sugar.
These pork chops feature a perfect “pearing” of flavors. The recipe involves pork chops with a glaze made from a blend of diced Asian pears, salt, olive oil, honey and sriracha, served with grits made from milk, water, salt, blue cornmeal and goat cheese.
