    Festive Food Recipes!!

    Guys and gals, I need a little help here. When I lived in the US I loved Sweet Potatoes and Devilled Eggs and want to make them for my family this Christmas. So I'd love it you could help me out with some good recipes for these and other festive foods.... from whatever holiday you choose to honour!! My sister-in-law is Polish and I love the different stuff she cooks on Christmas Eve, so foods from all cultures interests me.

    Come on people... make my mouth water!!!

    I don't have an exact recipe for deviled eggs, but here's how I make mine:

    -Hard boil however many eggs you want to make

    -Allow the eggs to cool, peel, cut eggs in half (length-wise), and scoop out the yolk into a small bowl

    -mash the yolks and add mayo., a very small amount of mustard, pickle relish (either sweet or dill---whichever you prefer---I like sweet), salt, and garlic powder to taste. Just add however much mayo. you need to moisten it and to get the right consistency.

    -fill the eggs with the yolk filling

    -sprinkle with paprika

    -chill eggs

    Bacon-Wrapped Water Chestnuts
    Submitted by Mercedes Mejia of Texas.
    Drain a can of whole water chestnuts and fill to the top with soy sauce. Let chestnuts soak for at least an hour.
    Drain, and then wrap the water chestnuts in raw bacon. Secure bacon with a toothpick.
    Place wraps on a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for approximately 45 minutes, or until bacon is done to likeness.
    Absolutely delicious!!


    I can vouch for htis one. Very good. I could founder on these.

    I was trying to remember my grandmother's recipe for sweet potato pie, but couldn't remember everything...found this on the net, it's close.


    INGREDIENTS:

    * 1 1/2 cups crushed graham crackers
    * 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    * 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    * 1/2 cup butter, melted
    * 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
    * 1 (29 ounce) can sweet potatoes, drained and mashed
    * 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
    * 1/4 cup light cream
    * 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    * 2 tablespoons vanilla
    * 1 (10.5 ounce) package miniature marshmallows

    DIRECTIONS:

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 inch springform pan.
    2. In a medium bowl, mix graham crackers, cinnamon, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and butter. Press mixture into the prepared springform pan to form a crust. Bake 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned.
    3. In a large bowl, blend cream cheese, sweet potatoes, 1/4 cup brown sugar, light cream, eggs, and vanilla. Pour into the baked crust.
    4. Bake pie 1 hour in the preheated oven, placing marshmallows on top to melt during the last 10 minutes.


    Seems to me grandma also dashed in nutmeg and cardomom. But that was a long time ago.

    Sweet potato pie rocks. Also worthy of note are sweet potato - pecan pie hybrids.

    All sounds very very yummy, KT, thanx for the egg recipes, I've also heard of chopped pimentos being mixed in, is this right? And do you pipe the mix back in the eggs? Also need the method for candies sweet potatoes with pecans. Gonna be a real americanised christmas here..

    Also I remember a salad I had in Florida of baby spinach, and if I recall, it had bacon, chopped eggs, bean sprouts (alfalfa???) with a ketchup based dressing, anyone heard of this??

    Keep 'em coming!!

    SEA...I'm familiar with a wilted spinach salad with hot bacon dressing. It does have bacon and chopped eggs in it, but it doesn't have a ketchup based dressing. It's basically a hot oil dressing that uses the bacon drippings and it is sweet. I've never made it myself, but have eaten it several times. I could easily find a recipe for you if you think that's it.

    As far as the deviled eggs go, I do not pipe the filling into the eggs. I just spoon it in. Whatever is easiest (the piping is prettier ).

    My sister made a candied sweet potato casserole with pecans for Thanksgiving. It was good but very very sweet...almost more like a dessert. Do you want that recipe?

    Rotel Cheese Dip is great for any occasion.

    1 big block of Velveeta cheese
    2 cans of diced Rotel tomatoes (at what ever heat level you desire)
    Add a little fresh chopped cilantro

    Place cubed up cheese and Rotel in crock pot. Stir in cilantro. When completely melted, serve with tortilla chips or Fritos.

    Enjoy!

    Speaking of things we Texans like to eat ANYTIME of the year (queso is also a breakfast food, right SNIC?)...

    Hey SNIC...how could I post a link to a song on here? SEA has GOT to hear Robert Earl Keen's Christmas song and I've got the CD here.

    Right click on the song and you should be able to copy shortcut or link. Something like that. I think.
