Ingredients

Check each recipe to get full ingredient list. You may need some of the following, depending on what you are making:

  • ham
  • turkey
  • lamb

  • ground beef

Instructions

  1. How to make ahead: I would recommend making these main dishes fresh on the day that you are serving them. However, you can prep your ingredients as much as possible so that you have one less thing to worry about. Whether that is chopping vegetables, marinating meat, or preparing glaze. You can store all your prepared ingredients in airtight containers in the refrigerator.
  2. How to store: Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 or 4 days in the refrigerator. Check the individual recipes for full storing instructions. 
  3. How to reheat: To reheat, place leftovers in the air fryer or in the oven at 300F for 10-20 minutes until warmed through.
