Christmas Main Dishes from Around the US

Unlike Thanksgiving, there is no fairly preordained "Christmas dinner." Some families around the US repeat the turkey dinner, complete with gravy, cranberry sauce, and stuffing, but others mix it up with anything from seared salmon and steamed lobster to pork roasts and prime rib! Whatever dish you enjoy as a main course at your holiday dinner, there's a recipe here you'll love!
