Christmas FoodFrom eggnog to candy canes to ginger bread and beyond the flavors and treats of Christmas are a delight. Here we engage in all things connected to Christmas foods -- from recipes to how-to's. This section of the Merry Forums is presented by Merry Christmas Recipes, our own database of Christmas recipes, many of which get submitted by our users from around the world.
I just read a post and wondered what everyone was having for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Do you have specialties that are traditional that your family will not let you get by without? Do you try new recipes every year?
My family will not let me get away without making refrigerator rolls. I do almost all my cooking in my crockpots (I think I have 11). It makes cleanup so much easier! We also do a maple-brined turkey with a basting sauce of white wine, butter, maple syrup, and Jack Daniels No. 7 mustard. It is to die for!! We also have a mashed potato casserole (with cream cheese, sour cream, onions), sweet potatoes, veggie, pies (mostly pumpkin), and I usually try a new dessert every year.
For Christmas, we have prime rib roast that we cook on the outside BBQ. It is so moist and tender.
So, what's on the menu? And are you willing to share recipes?
Thanksgiving: Home made pepperoni bread to snack on while watching the football games, Dinner:Turkey, homemade celery/onion/sage stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, broccoli, corn, mashed turnips (for my mom and aunt),cranberry sauce, candied yams, rolls, Pies: Pumpkin and apple crumb
Christmas Dinner: Spiral ham, home made mac and cheese, peas, corn, rolls. Desert: pumpkin pie and either an apple or cherry pie and christmas cookies..
