Holiday dinner for 20: Prime rib alternative

mountuhngirl | Nov 13, 201105:08 PM

Turns out we're having quite a crowd for our pre-Christmas family get together. I wanted the meal to be holiday-ish and built the menu around my husband's desire to cook prime rib. Well, that is out of our price range now. We don't want to cook a turkey or ham. I'm also trying to make ahead as much as possible so that is the reason for my other choices. Any suggestions for an entree to go with what I have so far that won't break the bank? Either a less expensive cut of beef or...?

Greens/citrus/avocado salad
Squash soup
Some time of potato dish-- probably a gratin of some kind
Chocolate mousse and pumpkin cheesecake
