Dream Picks: Holiday Menu Highlights

Traditional holiday parties have been scaled down, and our holiday traditions are going to look a lot different this year, but we can still find a little joy and comfort in sharing meals together. At Dream, we’re offering a selection of our favorite seasonal flavors so you can give yourself a break from the stress of the kitchen and focus on spending quality time with your loved ones.

Holiday Happy Hour

Want to have a special small gathering where you can sip cocktails around the fire? Our festive small plate trio lets you focus on at-home hosting duties. Choose from heavy hors d’oeuvres like turkey cranberry pinwheels, mini ham biscuits, cranberry bruschetta with crispy prosciutto, and more. Check out a few of our favorites below.

Goat Cheese Tartlets

These creamy goat cheese tartlets are one of our most popular menu items. Topped with caramelized onion and thyme, these make for a wonderfully satisfying small bite, and they’re suitable for any vegetarians in the family.

Cranberry Meatballs

Cranberries are an underrated seasonal fruit! Leave the scary canned cranberry sauce on the shelves, and try our sweet and savory cranberry meatballs instead. A perfect stand-in for the more traditional sausage ball, these will be a hit at any at-home gathering.

Charred Beef Crostini

Craving the classic flavor combination of a meat and cheese board? For a canapé that feels a little more decadent, we suggest our charred beef crostini with herbed Boursin a sweet balsamic drizzle.

Holiday Party Boxes

Having a solo Christmas movie marathon, and looking for snacks that are worthy of the occasion? Our party boxes feature a selection of cheeses and cured meats along with sausage balls, your choice of pimento cheese or cranberry dip, and a chocolatey seasonal dessert.

Chocolate Bark

Christmas cookies are nice, but chocolate bark is a next-level seasonal sweet treat. Our Dream kitchen crew whips up imaginative and mouth-watering combinations like salted caramel, raspberry white chocolate with pistachio, Mexican chocolate with ancho chili, and cayenne dark chocolate with candied bacon bits.

Buffet Style Family/Small Group Dinner

After the year we’ve all had, we don’t blame you for wanting to take some time during the holidays to sit back, relax, and enjoy hanging out with your close family. Give yourself the gift of time and let us take over the meal prep. Choose between sliced fried turkey and Southern-style Coca Cola ham for your entree, and pair it with sides like sage and pumpkin pesto asparagus, fire-roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, and stuffing. For dessert, try our Jack Daniel’s pecan pie


Save yourself from sad box stuffing this time around, and let us bring this classic dish for your family table. Our stuffing is made with fresh herbs and hearty bread, and we promise it will be worth it. A savory side that you’ll definitely want seconds of, this is a holiday comfort food classic done right.
