How to Host a Holiday Lunch Buffet

Whether it’s lunch, brunch or dinner, we’ve got you covered.

Hosting a daytime event this season? Treat your family and friends with these quick and simple holiday lunch ideas.

Say happy holidays with these Cheese-Stuffed Mushroom Caps, a delectable choice for a lunchtime occasion that vegetarians can enjoy, too. White button mushroom caps stuffed with cream cheese, garlic and herbs, topped with asiago and Parmesan cheeses make these veggie-friendly apps festive favourites. Sprinkle some fresh chopped chives or parsley overtop to make guests feel special.

There’s more than chestnuts roasting over the open fire this year! Our Spicy Italian Flatbread delivers authentic stone-baked crust covered in tomato sauce and is topped with fresh, spicy Soppressata salami and bocconcini cheese. Give it a festive feel by poking slices with a rosemary sprig, turning each serving into a delightful Christmas tree finger food.

Our Herb and Garlic Chicken Breasts come already seasoned to save you time this busy holiday season. Lemon wedges and thyme sprigs make an ideal garnish for this easy and light midday dish. Serve a little jarred pesto on the side to enhance the flavours.

It’s a wonderful world of gooey, cheesy goodness when you serve up everyone’s favourite: Lasagna. Top this dish with fresh basil, red pepper flakes and grated Parmesan cheese to add welcoming aroma and flavour.

Add colour to your table with a quick green side dish! Just toss our Extra Fine Green Beans with crumbled  bacon, sautéed grape tomatoes and a drizzle of your favourite dressing. 

Be sure to include some gluten-free selections in your holiday menu, including a special gluten-free dessert. Our gluten-free Dessert Bar Variety Pack and TOO TALL® Brownie Chunk Cream Cake promise a sweet ending that everyone can indulge in. Have some fun by decorating desserts with holiday goodies: ornamental gumdrops, M&Ms, mints, caramel corn and candy canes bring out the kid in everyone.
