    Absolutely Necessary Food For Christmas Dinner??

    Before my sister passed, when we would visit her for Christmas,,,
    she made me pick up one of these,,,


    She was the only one in the family that could cook it,, and make it edible,,,

    The guy that makes those hams is close enough that I can ride over,
    and select one that is still hanging in the barn.

    My wife is a great cook,, but, she can not prepare a cured ham,,,

    So,, maybe we need a new special food for Christmas,,

    What is your "Must Have" part of Christmas dinner??

    Great thread idea

    Two things

    1. Home made noodles (mom's secret), the way she makes them they're honestly more like dumplings in the shape of noodles. They're made from scratch and rolled by hand. She is the only person in the family that can make them, she won't share the recipe. She's so secretive about the ingredients, she'll get up in the middle of the night to make them so no one can take notes. Both my brothers and I have been trying to get the recipe/help her make them for as long as I can remember, no such luck. I honestly think it's something she will put in her will, just to one of us so that it stays a family secret.
    2. Hand made nut rolls. I'm sure there are other names for this pastry, but we've always called them nut rolls. It's a mixture of chopped walnuts, brown sugar and butter wrapped in a light/flakey/buttery flour crust with a sprinkle of sugar on top. Making them is/has always been a family affair. Most recently it's been 3 generations of the family standing around the dining room table in an assembly line making them, usually about 500 a year, which get handed out to neighbors and friends with the exception of several that get held back for enjoying Christmas morning with coffee while opening presents..Pretty cool tradition.

    Several years ago my wife and I made one of our own traditions with the start to the day. I make a breakfast casserole, shredded potatoes seasoned to taste on the bottom, topped with browned breakfast sausage and whisked eggs poured over the top, then topped with cheddar cheese. The girls love it and therefore it is made a handful of times throughout the year but that is how we have started our Christmas for the last, I think, 8 or 10 years. The best part is it takes an hour to cook and we all know the gifts can't wait for the kids, so gifts first while it cooks and then breakfast. For dinner we are not usually home so that is why we started our "Christmas breakfast" tradition.

    We host Christmas Eve and always have a ham dinner, nothing special. We usually end up at my MIL's on Christmas night and have appetizers. The 26th is our Christmas dinner at her house, it is a replay of Thanksgiving dinner (which we love), so again not much special about it. What makes the holidays for me, food wise, is the cookies and sweet treats. It's not Christmas for me without Swedish Ammonia Cookies.
