For many, the holidays are synonymous with great meals with family and friends, and Chef Marc Murphy is no stranger to holiday menu planning. As owner of Benchmarc Restaurants, which include both Landmarc and Ditch Plains in New York City, he's well versed in creating delicious meals for gatherings large and small.

Since it's the season of giving, Chef Murphy suggests making some of your holiday meals for less and donating the savings to Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign, which is dedicated to ending childhood hunger in America. Not only will you be feeding your family, you'll also help to feed other children who struggle with hunger. Marc is an avid supporter and member of their Leadership Council and the national spokesperson for Share Our Strength's Dine Out For No Kid Hungry.

To help you get started, here are three tried-and-true holiday dishes from Marc's own kitchen -- and the entire meal can serve four adults for less than $20.
