Last Minute Christmas Dinner Recipes

Honey-Mustard Glazed Hamrecipe

Find ham on sale all over town this week (see all the ham deals).  It’s the best price we’ll see it until Easter, so go ahead and get an extra for the freezer!

Old-Fashioned Scalloped Potatoes | recipe

butter – $2.99
onions – $1.99/lb
flour – $2.49
potatoes – $3.99/5 lb bag

A favorite easy recipe, this will take 20 minutes to bake and 5 minutes to devour.  I actually double the recipe every time because our kids fight for leftovers!

sauteed green beans

Easy Sauteed Green Beans | recipe

Fresh green beans are totally worth the little bit extra!  If you prefer a casserole try our gluten-free green bean casserole.

Creamy Macaroni & Cheese | recipe

Probably the cheapest side dish for a couponer to make… this is honestly one of my favorite dishes during the holidays.  Want a secret ingredient?  Add a little bit of mustard, it makes it amazing!

Pecan Pie | recipe

We’ve got all the ingredients for homemade pies on sale right now.  Pecans aren’t super cheap, but you will find them BOGO at a few stores.  If you get a 1 pound bag of pecans that is enough to make 2 pies!
