Holiday Dinner: Prime Rib Roast Recipe
Today we are featuring part 3 of our on Christmas dinner menu 5-part series. While Christmas dinner wouldn't be the same without delicious appetizers like these with bacon and amazing side dishes like these non-traditional mashed potatoes with goat cheese and fresh sage, what brings the meal all together is the main dish.
Every year, my mom makes a traditional prime rib roast. While she may try out new recipes for the other dishes, this one remains the same—traditional and delicious!
