I have received several emails inquiring about our Christmas Eve Menu. Is there such a thing as a specific menu? Kidding! At our house is a day of munching leading up to an actual meal. Actually, this is going to be a quick and easy post, as two of the dinner recipes are coming from Epicurious. I have been so busy that the 24th has snuck up and I didn’t really get a chance to think up a new dishes. With that, here are some tried and tested recipes.

Christmas Eve Menu

  • Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes – roast the garlic and set aside. In a skillet, cook onions in butter until softened. Place the onion mixture in a medium pot, add equal amounts of cream and milk. Add this mixture to your mashed potatoes and fold in the roasted garlic.
  • Beef Brisket with Merlot and Prunes
  • Creamed Corn Casserole – you can simplify this recipe by using French’s Onions and Hormel’s Real Bacon instead of making your own onion rings and cooking the bacon at home. One of my clients raved over this one at Thanksgiving!

and dessert… how can I forget dessert… also from my friends at Epi

  • Cranberry Eggnog Tart – because I am not a huge fan of bourbon, I plan on substituting with Bacardi Anejo. After all, this girl has got to support the economy of the homeland!
