Traditional holiday menus are filled with major allergens. If you, your child(ren) or a dinner guest have food allergies, you'll need allergy-friendly recipes. The tricky part, especially when feeding a crowd, is serving dishes that are safe for everyone to enjoy. Consider making all dishes safe for children with food allergies. That way, if dishes are passed family style or on a buffet, you won't have to worry about spills or swapped serving utensils. You will be able to relax and enjoy the meal along with everyone else.
The centerpiece meat dish can usually be made allergy-friendly, depending on what you are trying to avoid. Think roasted meats like ham or lamb, tossed with fresh herbs, olive oil, and some root veggies or potatoes.
