Re: Now that the Christmas meal is over, what recipes were a great success and what were a no go

I made Christmas candy. I think they call it bark. It was good but probably to many calories---white chocolate, dark chocolate and candy canes crushed. Sweet!!!

Here is the recipe for the raspberry french toast:

 

Overnight Raspberry French Toast

 

1 C maple syrup

1 large loaf French bread, cut into 2 inch cubes

8-12 oz cream cheese, cut into small cubes

3 C milk

6 eggs, beaten, or equivalent amount egg substitute

1 tsp vanilla

2 C fresh raspberries

Extra raspberry or maple syrup

 

Spray or butter a 9×13 baking dish. Layer bread, raspberries & cream cheese, using about half of ingredients; repeat layers. Whisk together syrup, milk, eggs & vanilla. Carefully pour over the layered bread, raspberry & cream cheese. Cover with foil & refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, bake loosely covered with the foil for 50-60 minutes in preheated 350 degree oven. Remove foil & bake an additional 10-15 minutes until the liquid is absorbed & the top begins to brown. Let cool a few minutes; cut into 12 squares/servings. Serve with raspberry or maple syrup, is desired.

 

Enjoy!

Yesterday we had what we call a scrambled mess - potatoes, onions , peppers and ham chunks all fried together then scrambled eggs poured over the top. I serve it with tomato slices.

Tonight we are having creamy potato soup with ham. It is cooking in the crockpot as I type. Probably with cornbread muffins.

Sounds so good  --- warm and filling!  I love that kind of stuff!!!

No matter what we have, we'll have that.  Plus reheats great!


@ECBG

 

That sounds very good.  Could you post the recipe for this if you don't mind?  Thanks.  


Gruyere Tomato Pie

 

2 1/4 lb Gryuere cheese  (the best value here is Sams) cut into pieces    

about 1/4 x 2" pieces

2   29-32 oz can Centos Italian Tomatoes  (or Italian canned tomatoes) cut up and WELL drained.

2 Deep Dish Pet Ritz frozen pie shells

6  Tbsp. Dried sweet basil

4  Tbsp. Dried Oregano   

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

 

Fill both pie shells with pieces.

Cover each pie with the drained cut up tomatoes.

Season each pie with 3 Tbsp, Sweet Basil and 2 Tbsp. Dried Oregano.

Bake one hour on 350 degrees.

Rest about 10 minutes and remove oil with large spoon.

(I serve it with a medium spoon with sharp edges)

Each pie serves 6-7 servings.

Goes well with any meat or with a main dish salad.

 

(Freezes well).
