They are so versatile!!! They are great on their own, but I used the leftovers to make ham, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwiches. I serve these with fresh fruit! If your family is adventurous, spread some Dijon mustard on toasted rolls and drizzle with quick hollandaise sauce!

5 Treasured Christmas Recipes from Alison’s Pantry

We love seeing all your fun holiday recipes, so it seemed fitting to share some of our favorites from over the years! We hope you like them as much as we do. 

Christmas Party Prep

So, with Christmas just around the corner, we’re all starting to think about what we want to serve for our big meal. For example, planning the menu in advance helps us stay on track because once the family starts coming to town, it becomes hard to focus on the meals when you just want to visit! Unless you don’t like your family…then we suggest diving right into planning the food! 

Need More Entertaining Ideas?

With all the craziness around the Holidays, make-ahead dishes are our best friend. For example, it helps us not feel as stressed trying to get everything done on the day of the big meal! At the same time, Mashed Potatoes are the best fresh, so this one is all about personal preference. 

Make-Ahead Holiday Mashed Potatoes with Bacon

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. To begin, place potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain; mash potatoes with cream cheese, sour cream and butter.
  2. Next, stir in milk and seasonings. Transfer potato mixture to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish; sprinkle with cheese, onions, and bacon. 
  3. Cover and refrigerate until ready to bake. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-50 minutes or until heated through.

 

 

Not only does this dough make divine rolls, but our make-ahead dough can also be used for many things including rolls, cinnamon rolls, hamburger buns, scones or bread. 

Make-Ahead Holiday Rolls

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. First, mix water and honey. Sprinkle yeast on top. Let set until yeast rises and foams at the top.
  2. Stir in evaporated milk, butter, and salt. Stir in 5 cups flour. Stir until smooth. Add 4 cups flour. Keep adding flour until dough is soft and not sticky. Knead until satin smooth. No need to let rise.
  3. Form your dough, then allow to rise for just 15 minutes and then bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
For make ahead rolls:

First, roll dough on a floured board, into a large Â½ “ thick circle. Cut into pie shapes and roll for crescent rolls. Place on greased cookie sheet and flash-freeze. Now, once the rolls are firm, remove them from the pans and store in zippered freezer bags, in the freezer. When ready to bake, place frozen rolls on greased baking sheet, cover, and allow to thaw and double in size in a warm place. Last, bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until light brown.
