Why share a Keto Christmas Dinner recipes post?
Christmas is often celebrated multiple times with various friends and family members. By having a range of options, you’re not stuck in a boring meal rotation.
Besides that, it can be hard to find a collection with everything from appetizers to keto Christmas desserts. So, you can pick and choose from across the five recipe categories to build and plan the Ultimate Keto Christmas Dinner menu.
Quick Tips for Hosting a Low Carb Christmas Dinner
- Make sure each guest has at least 2-3 options so your planned menu has room for any food allergies or restrictions
- Add some fresh veggies & fruit so that anyone might round out their plate
- Offer containers to guests to take home leftovers: no need to eat leftover Keto Christmas cookies or treats for weeks. I mostly use this tip for Thanksgiving Dinner, but it’s helpful for Christmas too
