Christmas Holiday Menu

01 Oct

Hello everyone,

Here are 2 more recipes with the holiday menu that I made. Enjoy!!! 🙂

Cider-Baked Ham

5-6 pound ham

2 cups apple cider, divided

1/2 cup soy sauce

2 tbsp. cornstarch

1 tbsp. water

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place ham in a large roasting pan. Bake 30 minutes or until outside is crisp. Remove from oven. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups cider and soy sauce; pour over ham. Basting ham frequently with cider mixture, cover and bake 2-3 hours or until meat thermometer inserted in center of ham registers 185 degrees. For sauce, combine meat drippings and remaining 1/2 cup cider in a medium saucepan. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and water to make a paste. Spoon into meat drippings, stirring until smooth. Cook over medium heat 10-15 minutes or until thick, stirring occasionally. Transfer ham to serving plate and serve with sauce. Yield 12-16 servings

Corn Bread Loaf

6 tbsp. unsalted butter

1 cup chopped green onion

3/4 cup chopped celery

4 cups corn bread crumbs

4 cups finely crumbled white bread

10 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

1-1/2 tsp. ground sage

3/4 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

 6 eggs, beaten

1 cup chicken broth

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Stir in onions and celery; saute 8 minutes or until soft. In a large bowl, combine bread crumbs. Stir in onion mixture and next 4 ingredients. Stir in eggs and chicken broth. Spoon evenly into a greased and floured 4×12-inch loaf pan. Bake 30-40 minutes or until top is brown. Unmold onto serving plate and slice. Serve immediately. Yield about 10 servings.

I finished the cake tonight for Rays office. I didn’t use the teddy bear rice crispy treat. The marshmallow had a funny aftertaste to it, so I didn’t want to send it like that. I ended up just piping on pumpkins, apples, vines and leaves on it instead. We’ll see how much it sells for tomorrow. 

Well until next time…

Amanda 🙂
