Tis the Season

Hello! Now that we're in full-swing holiday party mode, I want to know, what are your favorite holiday entertaining dishes? Appetizers? Desserts? I'll be posting some soon, but would love some feedback on what you love, or what you want to see!

Dear Apron,

I am hosting a Christmas brunch this year. I'm going to do a ham and some sort of an egg casserole, but I need some ideas for side dishes. Have any yummy ideas for me!?

Hi Kristen,

That sounds lovely! I always love a nice prosciutto wrapped asparagus as an elegant side dish for brunch or dinner. Another great option might be a sweeter side dish, such as a "stacker" with a small breakfast bread such as miniature biscuits, scones or toaste with fruit jam and a small slice of brie or goat cheese.

Hope that helps!
Apron

I love holiday entertaining. This year I'm on a mission to find a collection of make-ahead breakfast dishes for Christmas morning. I always find myself in the kitchen instead of opening presents and that has got to stop. Thus far I have a healthy French toast casserole and a not-so-healthy overnight rise cinnamon roll. I'll be on the lookout for others, so if you come across some I'd love to know about them.

Oh what a great idea! I couldn't agree more, it's so easy to miss out on the fun stuff because you're having too much fun in the kitchen. Every year we make a casserole the night before and reheat that contains croutons, eggs and milk topped with cheese and crumbled bacon. Easy and tasty :)

Share a duck recipe! We're not a duck-eating family -- I'm going to spring it on them this year.

Lindsay said...

Can't say I've ever prepared duck either. I'll put it on the list :)

Slashfood had a little list of the 5 things that should never be brought to a party (hummus? I thought that was kind of a staple)

Worth a look.

My focus when I enterain is to keep my dishes simple and elegant. I know that as soon as my food preparation gets complicated, it is no longer fun.
I love using large platters to display fruits, meats, cheeses, olives, vegetables and salads.

Obviously bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with chorizo are a holiday must. Thank you Central Market tapas class for teaching us that recipe! Always a crowd favorite.

I'm trying these Bacon Corn Muffins with Savory Cream Cheese Frosting for the holidays this year and I think they are going to be an instant favorite. Also, I made these Cranberry Bars for my family last year and my Mom made the request to bring them again!

Here are the links and I can't wait to see what you come up with!
