Christmas recipe season is in full swing



Christmas season is in full swing, with visitors dropping by, family coming to visit, parties to host and gatherings to bring an appetizer to for sharing.

Below are some recipes for breakfast and brunch, appetizers and desserts, many of which can be made ahead or frozen until ready to bake and serve. Included is a bonus recipe for a Christmas Village House that is a great project to do with children (of any age) and grandchildren. Conference members and chefs contributed them during last fall’s recipe contest.

Breakfast and Brunch


This quiche makes its own crust, that is part of its charm. You can use canned asparagus and canned mushrooms, which speeds up making this recipe.

This can be assembled the night before and baked off in the morning.

Got strudel? You've got to have it warm with whipped cream!

French toast that can be assembled the night before and baked in the oven. This can be made for a large crowd.

Plenty for a crowd and sure beats the store-bought ones!


 

Appetizers


Easy-to-make baked buffalo wings without any breading or frying.

Easy to make and can be frozen.

This is great for holidays, family reunions and parties. It can be made two to three days ahead, then baked off just before your get-together. Best served hot or warm.

There are spiced pecans and then there are Mississippi spiced pecans.

Easy to make ahead for holiday gatherings.


 

Desserts

A family recipe passed down from mother to daughter, and now to you and your family.
