These recipes were inspired by our love for Christmas music and lyrics that talk about food! Have you ever thought about how Christmas songs can make you think about certain foods or drinks? Well, we made a list and decided to carol our way through this delicious Holiday menu.
Let It Snow: “And I brought some corn for popping”
OK, cool. You brought some corn for popping, but what are you going to do with it? We have some ideas! You can make both a sweet and savory version.
- For the savory version, add butter, grated parmesan cheese, Truff oil and Truff brand salt.
- For the sweet version, sprinkle melted semi sweet chocolate and top with peppermint flakes.
Grandma got ran over by a reindeer: “She’d been drinking too much eggnog”
Poor Grandma! I love eggnog but I do not enjoy making traditional eggnog. This version is faster than Santa’s sleigh! It calls for liquid pasteurized eggs (egg beaters), milk, yogurt, vanilla and peppermint. The next step will be to blend this all together and feel free to add some crushed peppermint on top.
We guarantee that Santa will love this one and so will you!
12 Days of Christmas: “And a partridge in a pear tree.”
Instead of using a partridge, we landed on prosciutto and decided to pair it with pears! (See what I did there?) We also added some garlic olive oil, blue cheese, arugula and honey.
We are calling it “Pig and a Pear tree Pizza.”
Ooni pizza ovens are certainly having their moment, so we think this combination of ingredients tastes and looks like Christmas on a pizza!
We Wish You a Merry Christmas! “Bring us some figgy pudding.”
I don’t know about you, but I never really understood what figgy pudding is until I decided to make it for myself. After doing a lot of research about figgy pudding, I learned that it’s more like a cake than a pudding. It contains a lot of dried fruits like raisins, figs, and cranberries and alcohol like brandy or rum.
It’s a an English dessert that is actually steamed. We think this version is pretty good and we recommend serving it with whipped cream and cinnamon.
