Holiday Recipes

Each year, students in the Margaret Ritchie School of Family and Consumer Sciences' Coordinated Program in Dietetics create holiday-appropriate recipes to share with Vandal families near and far.

These talented and innovative students develop their recipes while learning and practicing principles of quantity food production. For the holiday recipe challenge, students work in pairs to create recipes that reflect the spirit of the season and Vandal pride. Their recipes, as well as those developed by students in recent years, are available here.

Vandal Holiday Recipe Challenge 2020: Simple Comfort Foods
Eight teams of students were challenged to create a dish that both reflects the comfort and warmth of the holiday season and calls for no more than five ingredients.

Students presented their recipes to a tasting panel of alumni, faculty and staff including President Scott Green. Congratulations to this year's winning recipes:

  • Popular choice: Baked Butternut Squash & Pecan Puff Pastries
  • President’s choice: Holiday Cheesy Potatoes

Please enjoy these recipes as part of your celebrations this holiday season.
