The holidays are all about family, quality time, and the lasting memories we create together.
That said, the holidays are also about food. Glorious, locally-raised, absolutely delicious food from VG Meats. After all, family time is special, but it’s even better when it involves an outstanding meal. Whether your dining room is casual or dressed to the nines, you need a holiday dinner that brings everyone to the table. So where do you begin? Well, pick your protein - it’s the star of the show - and then build your perfect meal from there. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Gobble, GobbleTurkey is a holiday classic and a genuine crowd-pleaser. When it’s cooked right, turkey is moist and flavourful - perfect with a side of homemade stuffing, cranberry sauce and your favourite seasonable vegetables. We get our fresh turkeys from a trusted partner, Hayter’s Farm. These are in high demand, so call now to reserve yours and request the size your family needs (we’ll do our best to find a bird that’s as close to your request as possible). A fresh, ethically-raised turkey from a local farm is something you can’t replicate or get from the average grocery store - and trust us, your family will notice the difference. Don’t forget the gravy!
Ham for the HolidaysNot everyone goes the poultry route over the holidays - and really, there’s no need to follow the crowd. Why not serve whatever meat your family loves? Ham isn’t just for Easter and makes an excellent Christmas dinner. Try serving it with some pureed squash or sweet potato and a green bean casserole. To order your holiday ham from VG Meats, contact us at our Simcoe location or our retail shop in Stoney Creek - we’d be happy to help!
