These Alabama Businesses Will Help You Plan a Christmas Dinner for the Ages

The Christmas dinner chef can easily plan a meal for the ages using products made by Alabama-based businesses.

Almost all of us have heard of Bates Turkey. But what about China Doll rice and beans,  Mrs. Stratton’s potato salad, Mille Ray And Sons rolls, and Wickles wickedly delicious pickles?

How can you say no to China Doll Brown Rice?

Before lunch at 1 p.m., you may want to celebrate Christmas with some Barber’s egg nog,  party dip or Wickles pickles.

If you enjoyed that Bates turkey for Thanksgiving and are looking for a change, you can choose from among Bob Sykes Bar-B-Q, Conecuh or Dean sausage, or a variety of Zeigler meats.

Bob Sykes BarBQ has been an Alabama tradition for years.

For the sides, take your pick from among a variety of China Doll rice and bean products, Mrs. Stratton’s cole slaw and potato salad, or Dixie Lilly baby lima beans, red kidney beans or quick grits.

To top off the cole slaw, you can use John’s Famous Angel Hair Slaw and Salad Dressing.

Of course, you’re missing out if you haven’t given this one a shot. 

Bread lovers are in for a treat with Mille Ray yeast rolls or Sister Schubert’s.

If you prefer a spicy meal there are plenty of offerings made in Alabama, including Dak’s Spices or Legg’s Old Plantation Seasonings.

Milo’s Tea will be a hit for lunch.

Milo’s Sweet Tea is a mainstay of the Southern refrigerator. 

For dessert, you live in the right state. Bud’s Best Cookies, Barber’s egg nog, pecan products from Tucker Pecan Company, or G MOMMAS cookies can satisfy almost any sweet tooth.

After dessert, Good Morning Coffee Company and Red Diamond make serving coffee easy.

A little coffee to beat the after-dessert blues is just the ticket.
