In case you haven’t heard: the month of July is dedicated to Harry Potter on AGeekyGal! I’m kicking off the first post with four quotes to live by, straight from the series.

So every Christmas I wish that I was in Hogwarts, eating their delicious feast and playing wizard’s chess. I even had a Gryffindor inspired tree last year hoping to bring some HP cheer to my holiday. One year, I would really like to do a Harry Potter “Happy Christmas” dinner featuring some of the best dishes and yummiest food mentioned in the series.
In my search for an epic Harry Potter dinner party, I stumbled upon In Literature. She hosts the most amazing Harry Potter themed dinner party. After looking over her yummy recipes, I was inspired to write this post as part of the Month of Magic blog series this month. Here’s a few recipes I’ve found so far featuring Nerdy Nummies, Feast of Fiction, and In Literature.
I have found love in Nerdy Nummies and Rosanna Pansino. She has several Harry Potter inspired recipes, but I felt like this would be an amazing dessert to end the night of a Harry Potter-filled night. Not only is this a simple recipe, but it’s super easy with minimal ingredients, which is my favorite kind of recipe.
Another pretty simple recipe from Feast of Fiction. (Can you tell I enjoy these cooking shows?) Don’t be intimidated by the ingredient list: most of them are spices. If you have a mixer, it’ll be even easier. Pair these with an after-dinner tea and complete your Hogwarts Christmas feast.
French Onion Soup
Bryt gives us a super easy, no fuss recipe for Kreacher’s French onion soup that is absolutely perfect on it’s own on a cold winter night or as an appetizer to your Happy Christmas feast! The thing I love most about this recipe is that you may already have most of these ingredients in your pantry.
Now for one of my favorite meals: Shepherd’s Pie! Bryt’s recipe is slightly different from my mom’s. I’m sure if you don’t want to use Lamb, you can use beef. It’s very few ingredients for a nice hefty meal that can be had on it’s own or paired with other dishes for your HP dinner.
Yorkshire Pudding might just be the next best thing to a biscuit in the south! I’d love to use one of these to sop up gravy from some mashed potatoes and gravy or gravy from a nice big roast with potatoes and carrots. These are simple to make and only 5 ingredients.
Do you have any Harry Potter inspired recipes to share with us? Have you made any? How did they turn out? Share with me in the comments!
