What's your favorite Christmas food?

By jck ·

Mine is pecan pralines.

Mom's cooking is why I was a fat kid...hahaha.

Ok, here's a new one for you

Steam the sprouts as usual, until soft but not mushy. Put 2.5 teaspoons of sesame oil in a bowl and add sprouts. Mash together (amount of oil is an approximation, what you're looking for is a smooth but not oily or runny consistency) Transfer to ovenproof dish and spread out evenly. Dust with sesame seeds, and pop under grill for about 2 minutes. What you're aiming for is a slightly crunchy topping, with nutty flavoured mashed sprouts underneath.


(known in my house as sesame sprouts, btw!)

That's odd. I have a similar recipe.

I don't mash the sprouts just pack them in the dish and brush the oil over them. Everything else is as you described right down to the name. One thing I do before steaming the sprouts is to soak them in ice cold salted water for a half hour.

Steamed, bolied, or whatever

My preference is to eat them with salt and good vinegar.

the worst thing...

by Garret` In reply to What's your favorite Chri ... beetroot set in port-wine flavoured jelly (jello for those in the US) in a quiche dish. I mean WTF!? What the **** is port-wine flavoured jelly anyway!? Another (un)favourite is some sort of salad set in...wait for it...Orange flavoured jelly, with like, mint shavings on top of it! It's discusting. Every year, for 24 years I've had that dished up to me - courtesy of my crazy Aunty. I was lucky enough to be overseas for Christmas last year so I messed out. Hoorah!

with Captain Morgans and a touch of nutmeg.

That or mulled apple cider with a touch of cinnomon.

Or some coffee with a touch of brandy is always grand.

Do I hear any takers for some irish coffee?

All the nummies

by CuteElf In reply to What's your favorite Chri ...

Mom would make bazillions of little cookies and high sugar munchies.
7 layer bars
butter cookies
rum balls
lemon bars

man. On Xmas morning we always have a home made xmastree shaped bunch of buns. With frosting and orange zest and cinnamanninonon.

But, honestly, of all the foods, I love the turkey stuffing all moist and juicy and turkeyish.

Who wants to taste my Baileys Choco Cheesecake?
