For some, soup for Christmas is a tradition. For others, it's a cozy new way to enjoy the holiday. No matter your camp, we thought of everything you'll need in our Christmas soup menu -- even homemade bread for dunking!

Salad: Winter Slaw with Kale and Cabbage

Supplement your Christmas soup menu with a refreshing salad -- the perfect complement to savory soup. Shred earthy winter greens, and show them off with a creamy parsley dressing.

Christmas Soup Menu Tip: Make this salad a day ahead, and let it rest for even bolder flavor.

Vegetable Side: Creamy Brussels Sprouts

This decadent vegetable dish (you didn't know that was possible, did you?) fits right into a Christmas Soup menu thanks to a simmer in chicken broth and a healthy splash of whipping cream. To make it holiday-worthy, top it off with crumbled bacon.

Starch Side Dish: Rosemary-Parmesan Bread with Garlic Butter

No soggy crusts here. This herby loaf is loaded with savory Parmesan, and thanks to a semolina crust, it will hold up to a night of dunking.

Entree: New Potato Chicken Soup

Ladles ready: The star of this Christmas soup menu is a wholesome blend of potatoes, chicken, and veggies made glam with goat cheese and caramelized onions. Best of all, once it's in the slow cooker, this holiday entree is hands-off.

Dessert: Hot Cocoa Cupcakes

Rich cocoa cupcakes keep the cozy going long after soup bowls are cleared. To mimic your favorite winter beverage, we added espresso powder, coffee liqueur, and a marshmallow frosting.
