Christmas Morning Tradition ......Mmmmmm

     Christmas morning at our house had a traditional menu that was not served on any other day....and something everyone looked forward to before presents were opened and the rest of the day celebrated.

     When people visit Wisconsin one of the things that they enjoy most is the cheese and sausage....and if people are transferred to another state,  they often order these "Wisconsin delicacies" delivered to them in their new location.

     Saucisschen  Christmas morning always had what we called..."snails"...no it was not escargot for breakfast...they are actually called  Saucisschens and it very lean pork sausage wound around on a stick that sort of resembles a "snail." Sometimes done stove top, sometimes on the grill and the newest member of the family always found a collection of everyone else's empty sticks on their plate...a "welcome to the family" sort of tradition.   The "snails" were accompanied by an egg bake that I make with a crust on the bottom and the eggs include  a variety of  colorful vegetables and but of course, Wisconsin cheese in a variety or two.Egg bake

     No Christmas morning menu would be complete without the addition of cinnamon monkey bread; another taste

treat reserved only for Christmas morning...Monkey Breadand is "monkey proof" to make !  Mmmmm the aroma of cinnamon as it bakes .....nothing like it !

    And the Mimosa always adds a touch of fun to the menu ....with a Christmas toast to the holidaMimosay offered by a family member.  Nofruit platter one ever left the table hungry....the fruit platter was always a festive addition of color, texture and fun to arrange in different eye pleasing and palate pleasing patterns.  

     A potato bake...with you guessed it...with cheese rounded out this holiday menu and of course....there were leftovers for everyone to take home and enjoy all over again.Potato bake

   Coffee   Top it off with a hot cup of freshly brewed coffee and it just couldn't get any better ! 

      No one ever leaves the table hungry at our house and this holiday meal was certainly no exception to that rule !

     Cherish every holiday meal you have....when your guests are gone ....you have the memories that will last you a lifetime.

Good morning, Sally and David... since we celebrated Christmas on Christmas Eve in a good German, Lutheran way... we had no such food traditions for Christmas Day. Everything happened the night before. And then we went to my aunt's house for Christmas dinner.

I think that is neat to have a special meal that is not had on any other day of the year, definitely something to look forward to each and every year.  I have my eyes on that fruit platter, it looks amazing!!!
