We've done this one two years in a row now..it's an Emeril Lagasse recipe and really easy.

Emeril's Bacon Braised Green Beans

Ingredients
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 slices bacon, diced
1 cup thinly sliced onion
2 tablespoons sliced garlic
2 pounds green beans, rinsed, ends trimmed
1 cup chicken stock or canned, low- sodium chicken broth or water
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Directions
Set a Dutch oven over medium heat, and add the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the bacon and cook, stirring occasionally, until it is well browned, about 5 minutes. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the green beans and toss to combine with the bacon and onion.

Increase the heat to medium-high and add the chicken stock. As soon as the stock begins to boil, place the lid on the pan and cook the beans for about 6 minutes. Remove the lid, season the beans with the salt and pepper, and toss well. Replace the lid and cook until the beans are tender, 1 or 2 minutes longer.

Remove from the heat and transfer the beans to a serving dish or small platter to serve.

Classic English Toad-in-the-Hole Recipe
Preparation time: 1 hour.

Ingredients
1 1/2 cup of plain flour
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb of good-quality sausage (pork, turkey)
salt and pepper
Method
1 Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees F. Sift flour into a bowl with a pinch of salt and pepper. Make a well in the center of the flour. Whisk the eggs and the milk into the center of the well in the flour, gradually to smooth out lumps. Cover and let stand 30 minutes.

2 Brown the sausages in a little olive oil and cook through, about 10 minutes

3 Put sausages in a roasting pan, pour the batter over the sausages and place in oven. Cook for about 20 minutes or until the batter is risen and golden. Serve at once.

Serves 4-6

Bon Appétit!

Marmalade Baked Ham Recipe

Ingredients

    * 1 boneless fully cooked ham (3 to 4 pounds)
    * 12 to 15 whole cloves
    * 1 can (12 ounces) beer or Progresso ® Beef Broth
    * 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
    * 1/2 cup orange marmalade

Directions

    * Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep; insert a clove in each diamond.
    * Pour beer or broth over ham. Rub brown sugar over surface of ham. Cover and bake at 325° for 1-1/4 hours.
    * Spread with marmalade. Bake, uncovered, for 15-25 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 140°.

Yield: 12-14 servings.



We make this all the time and love it. We use the beer instead of the broth. I will post it later.  But...we're trying a new recipe this Christmas, that's similar - will post it later.

We tried this ham recipe this past Christmas and loved it!

Orange Baked Ham
Ina Garten


Ingredients
    * 1 (14 to 16-pound) fully cooked, spiral-cut smoked ham on the bone
    *
    * 6 garlic cloves
    * 8 1/2 ounces orange marmalade
    * 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
    * 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
    * 1 orange, zested
    * 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the ham in a heavy roasting pan.

Mince the garlic in a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Add the marmalade, mustard, brown sugar, orange zest, and orange juice and process until smooth. Pour the glaze over the ham and bake for 1 hour, until the ham is fully heated and the glaze is well browned. Serve hot or at room temperature.


(I skipped the food processor step and just whisked it all together, using the minced garlic that comes in a jar- came out fine! Very easy.)

Another favorite from Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa on the Food Network)

Lemon and Garlic Roasted Chicken

    * 1 (5 to 6-pound) roasting chicken
    * Kosher salt
    * Freshly ground black pepper
    * 1 large bunch fresh thyme
    * 4 lemons
    * 3 heads garlic, cut in 1/2 crosswise
    * 2 tablespoons butter, melted
    * 1/2 pound sliced bacon
    * 1 cup white wine
    * 1/2 cup chicken stock

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Remove the chicken giblets. Rinse the chicken inside and out. Remove any excess fat and leftover pinfeathers and pat the outside dry. Place the chicken in a large roasting pan. Liberally salt and pepper the inside of the chicken. Stuff the cavity with the thyme, reserving enough thyme to garnish the chicken dish, 1 lemon, halved, and 2 halves of the garlic. Brush the outside of the chicken with the butter and sprinkle again with salt and pepper. Tie the legs together with kitchen string and tuck the wing tips under the body of the chicken. Cut 2 of the lemons in quarters and scatter the quarters and remaining garlic around the chicken. Lay the bacon slices over the chicken to cover.

Roast the chicken for 1 hour. Remove the bacon slices from the top of the chicken and set aside. Continue roasting the chicken for an additional 1/2 hour, or until the juices run clear when you cut between a leg and thigh. Remove to a platter and cover with aluminum foil while you prepare the gravy.

Remove all but 2 tablespoons of the fat from the bottom of the pan. Add the wine and chicken stock and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat, and simmer for 5 minutes, or until reduced by half.

Slice the chicken on a platter. Garnish the chicken platter with the bacon slices, roasted garlic, reserved thyme and 1 lemon, sliced. Serve with the gravy.

This is a Paula Deen recipe that I tried last night - we did not have sausage, so we left that out, and used frozen corn - the niblets.  We used Old Bay for the crab boil seasoning.  Use small red potatoes, or cut up larger ones.

Low Country Boil

    * Crab boil, 2 teaspoons per quart of water
    * 12 red new potatoes
    * 6 (4-inch) smoked sausage link sausage
    * 6 ears corn
    * 3 pounds fresh shrimp, unpeeled

Directions

Fill a large pot with enough water to cover all of the ingredients. Add the crab boil and bring to a boil. Adjust the crab boil to suit your taste. When the water boils, add the potatoes and sausage. Cook on medium heat for 20 minutes. Add corn and cook for an additional 10 minutes. Add shrimp and cook for no more than 3 minutes. Drain and serve with warm bread.

Found this thread and wanted to bump it at this very appropriate time of the year.  Happy Thanksgiving.

Dip that makes as much or as little as you want.

bag of Fritos, scoops

container of sour cream
jar of salsa
bag of shredded cheddar cheese
can of chicken, optional
green onion, optional

combine ingredients in microwavable bowl.  When the color is peach you have the correct portion of each of the first three ingredients in your bowl.

Microwave until cheese melts and is hot.

Enjoy!

Cheese Ball

pack of cream cheese, softened
can of Underwood chicken spread

combine mixing well

Option one form into a ball and refrigerate until firm, serve with chicken in a basket crackers

Option two microwave and serve soft

Good with either crackers or Fritos.  What you use depends on if it is warm (soft) or cold (firm)
