I dunno if there is a topic already on this but thought it would be nice to swap recipes since it's the holiday season. I'll start off with a simple cranberry sauce recipe I learned from Chef John on Foodwishes Blog .  eating cookies

My contribution to the family's Christmas Eve Buffet:

Hot Chicken Salad

4 cups cooked chicken, cubed
3/4 c. mayonnaise
1c. chopped celery
2tbs. lemon juice
2tbs. chopped pimentos
1tbs. salt
1tbs. minced onion
4 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1 can of cream of chicken soup

Combine and put in 2 quart dish.

Top with:
1 c. grated sharp cheese
1 and 1/2 c. crushed potato chips
1c. slivered almonds

Refrigerate overnight and then bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees

It's a family favorite that I make every year. ...

YUM!  And thank you for having this thread to take my 'mind' off of other topics here.

My kid's favorite mashed taters.

A bunch of yukon gold potatoes, peeled and boiled in water with 2 cups milk.
Drain or don't.
Mash to smithereeens.
Add one container each of cottage cheese and sour cream
Fresh garlic squeezed
1/2 cup green onions

Use mixer to blend well.

Place in oven - 350 or so for about 45 minutes

Before serving, dot with butter and slivered almonds and brown under the broiler.

To Die For.

So...when are we having a pot luck???

^^^ sounds good too! I've never had mashed potatoes with cottage cheese, but the ones I've had with sour cream, cheddar, & garlic were delicious!

For our traditional Thanksgiving & Christmas Day dinners:

Waldorf Salad

4c. diced, unpeeled, crisp apples (4-5 lg. apples)
3c. red seedless grapes
2c. diced celery
1c. mayonnaise
2/3 cups coarsely chopped walnuts

salt & pepper to taste

Combine ingredients and toss. If you'd like to serve individual portions, mound salad in lettuce cups and garnish with maraschino cherries.

Serves 8

toss string beans with the oil & vinegar
place in 8x12 baking dish
sprinkle with bleu cheese
blace in oven warmer for 5 minutes to further soften the cheese

salt & pepper to taste


Squash

3 medium size squash, peeled & cubed

Oh, good heavens, I'm gonna die at this dinner menu which I totally intend to steal.  Thank you!  Green beans and bleu cheese?  Earth Angel!!!!  Ambrosia!

What's the deal with you, in the UK, and your plum pudding? I watched A Christmas Carol last night and got kinda excited to make it.  Easy/not easy?

One last little thing.  May I have the honor of making the gravy?  My grandmother taught me over a wood stove and I have it DOWN.  It's legendary.

The Gravy's all yours! And the bleu green beans are my daughter's favorite. I think they're wonderful too, but I only usually make them for Easter, my grandmother does them for Christmas dinner. And she makes ambrosia salad too! One of my favorites also. We use olive oil & red vinegar (forgot to specify) for the green beans.

I've never had plum pudding, but I'm interested in a recipe for it. Any of our British forum members have some good pudding recipes? black pudding? bread pudding? Any pudding except tapioca!

Oh, what a lovely party we'd have, huh?  Too bad I didn't win the lottery and we could rent a chalet and cook away for a weekend.  It would be fabulous.  Especially with the snow we have been 'gifted' with in California.  In the mountains, of course (47" at Mammoth Mtn!  In one and a half days!).  All I have is beautiful, glorious, rain.  No one appreciates rain more than a San Diegan, or an Arab.  J/K.

Keeping on topic, any of the Brit pudding recipes would be greatly appreciated.  In the Christmas Carol, the pudding was on fire.  huh

Yikes! Skip the black pudding recipe! It's meat cooked in blood, not really pudding at all!  ick

YIKES is right.  Thanks anyway, Mr. Dickens.  I'll stick with rum pudding or black cherry pie with pecans.  Very American, but for whatever reason, Christmas has a Brit-touch to it.  Anything local would be appreciated and I'll do my best to try and make an authentic UK dish.

^^^ooh, I love butterfingers and will most definitely try this making this eventually. Right now I've got far too many Christmas cookies, but this recipe sounds delightful! I'll let you know what I think in a few months (seriously, I'm involved in a massive cookie exchange and even though I give away gift packages, between my mother & I, we freeze some & all of our family will be eating them for the next 2-3 months!)

Ladies these recipes sound yummy, keep them coming! sigh
We usually don't cook great meals on Christmas eve because we still have go to the midnight mass after dinner, in our family the highlight is Christmas day!
For Christmas eve it's usually potato salad with Frankfurter kochwurst (the type sausages Americans use for their hot dogs)
On Christmas day we usually make stuffed goose, or at least we used to when my dad and grandma were still alive and my brother still lived here, now that it's just me and my mum we don't have a great feast any more also because I have to work at the airport until 10 in the evening so.... :(
I'm not sure what she's gonna do this year... dontknow easter-think I'll see when I get home  easter-wink

^^^ I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your mum! I've got a big family and Christmas Eve is only a buffet with mostly hor d'ouvres, as some of my family goes to midnight mass also. Oyster Stew is the mainstay on Christmas Eve. I'm sorry you have to work.  :(  I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have time with my family during the holidays! Happy Holidays to you & yours Akasha!  :reindeerdance:
