Texas Holiday Feast Traditions

holiday food

One of the best parts of the holiday season is undoubtedly the food! It’s hearty, delicious, and made with lots of love – it just seems to taste better than it does the rest of the year. And we all know that with so many cultural influences, food in Texas is incredible and unique, so naturally, the holiday food is as well. We think these four dishes are some of the best parts of holiday tables in Texas!

Fried Turkey

It’s crispy on the outside, but juicy and flavorful on the inside, which makes it a winner for holiday food in our book. Whether you season it with traditional herbs and garlic, or take an alternate route with Cajun or Mexican-inspired seasonings, frying your turkey is a quick way to enjoy your bird even more!


Texas is lucky to have so many different cultures that influence our food, and we’re especially grateful for tamales! These warm, delicious envelopes of masa filled with spiced meat are common at many holiday tables in Texas. If you haven’t treated yourself to holiday tamales yet, try it this year! It’s an exciting side dish that everyone will love.


Smoked sausage is a staple for Texas holidays, and it’s not hard to see why! It’s packed with flavor and is wildly delicious served as an appetizer or main dish alike. Plus, it’s packed with flavor and easy to prepare, so more complex dishes can keep your attention in the kitchen.

Cornbread Dressing

We’re not talking about soggy dressing from the middle of a roasted turkey here. We’re talking about crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, flavor parade dressing. Make it with jalapeño cornbread for an extra kick, and try adding in a variety of mix-ins like sausage, brisket, extra jalapeños, sage, garlic, or pecans. We guarantee no one will turn down seconds of this yummy dish!
