The holidays are quickly approaching and we can expect they’ll be different this year, as consumers trade larger get-togethers for more intimate gatherings1. To ensure you grab the attention of those looking for restaurant meal kit options this holiday season, consider Land O Lakes® dairy products to help your restaurant deliver high-quality, take-home restaurant meal kits that will be the toast of the holiday season.

Christmas and Holiday Restaurant Meal Kit Ideas

Roast Prime Rib is a holiday meal classic. Offer this savory main course with traditional sides taken to the next level with Land O Lakes® dairy products. Add horseradish to our Extra Melt® Performance Cheese Sauce to get a steak sauce that’s deliciously savory and creamy. A side of roasted carrots can steal the show when tossed in Land O Lakes® Garlic & Herb Signature® Spread. But don’t stop there! Top off the carrots with Land O Lakes® Fancy Shredded Parmesan Cheese and toasted chopped almonds and you’ve got a side that customers will be asking for even after the holiday season has passed.

Known for your steak dinners? Bring your take-home steak dinner to a new level by pairing it with a seasonal twist on creamed spinach. Use Land O Lakes® Extra Melt® White Cheese Sauce and add cooked spinach, sautéed onions, a pinch of garlic and nutmeg, and you are set – It’s sure to be a hit!

Speaking of hit sides, comfort classics are a must, especially since they are the #1 choice for family meal options2. And what’s more comforting or classic than au gratin potatoes? Add Extra Melt® Shredded Cheese to your au gratin potatoes to give them a creamy, mouth-watering texture and flavor. They will also reheat perfectly in your customers’ homes.

These are just a few ideas for how Land O Lakes® products can support your takeout business and how to bring your restaurants’ holiday meal kits to life!
