You won’t be left out of any of the festivities with our Test Kitchens Director’s make-ahead brunch.
My husband, Kane, and I have always enjoyed a fireside brunch on Christmas Eve morning while listening to A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols on National Public Radio. This menu is mostly make-ahead―so like us, you can relax and enjoy the beginning of the holiday.
Up to two months ahead:
You don’t have to sit at the dining room table to break out your best. Take a casual approach, and serve Gentlemen’s Casserole
and Winter Fruit Compote fireside using your special china and silver.
It's hard to beat the spicy bite of a good bloody mary on holiday mornings. Seasoned with fresh basil, cilantro, and chives,
this drink received the highest rating from Southern Living's test kitchen.
As our family grows, so do our traditions. Old ones become new again when they are passed to the next generation. Here are
a few traditions that my family treasures; yours may enjoy them also.
