Longtime Go Bold With Butter readers know Taylor for his takes on classic Southern-style dishes and homestyle classics like Apple Bacon Dutch Baby and Double Chocolate Pie. Here, he’s created a full holiday menu that celebrates Southern flavors with a few new twists. The star of the show is a pepper-crusted beef tenderloin with roasted garlic sauce. It takes very little prep time and makes a beautiful presentation. Start off with a crab-stuffed mushroom appetizer, and round out the meal with savory Brussels sprouts with bacon and water chestnuts, cinnamon-spiked sweet potatoes with apples, and a gingerbread pudding cake with nutmeg sauce.


Crab Stuffed Mushrooms
Luxurious lump crab meat is highlighted with buttery scallions and spiced cream cheese stuffed in an earthy and tender mushroom. The stuffed mushroom is then topped with a buttery Parmesan breadcrumb topping and baked to a beautiful golden brown.

Beef Tenderloin with Roasted Garlic Sauce
Oven roasting a whole filet of beef is an impressive, easy and delicious way to serve a crowd during the holiday season. The whole beef tenderloin is spread with soft butter, crusted with cracked rainbow peppercorns, and then baked until your desired doneness. A smooth, creamy and savory roasted garlic sauce is the perfect pair for the tenderloin while serving!

Pan Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Buttery and tender Brussels sprouts, crunchy water chestnuts and salty bacon make for a side that will go perfectly with beef tenderloin. You can prepare the Brussels sprouts right before serving or let them hold in a 250°F oven for a little while until you are ready to serve.

Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes & Apples

Instead of the traditional white marshmallow topping, try topping your creamy and buttery sweet potatoes with a layer of sweet, gooey, glazed cinnamon apples. When your guests see this beautiful take on a classic dish, they will be sure to save room on their plate for this delicious side.

Gingerbread Pudding Cakes with Nutmeg Sauce

A warm, gooey, buttery, ginger flavored cake covered in a sweet nutmeg sauce is the perfect end to any holiday meal. Putting these cakes in individual ramekins adds a personal touch and gives each guest the ability to add as much or as little nutmeg sauce as they like!
