Christmas 2012

For Christmas Eve this year we had Eddie's mom, brothers, and grandparents come over to our house to celebrate. Eddie's family loves their sweets so we started off the night with a few sweet treats and appetizers, followed by a lot of fried food, and finished off with more sweets . . . It isn't the holidays with out a bunch of junk food right? lol

Here is a few recipes from our Very Fried and Sweet Christmas that
we would like to share with you
Appetizers: Smoked Salmon Dip and Chocolate Pretzel Bites
Main Course: Spicy Chicken Poppers

 Smoked Salmon Dip
(Ina Garden - Food Network)
8oz Cream Cheese                 
1/2 cup Sour Cream                 
1 tbs Lemon Juice
1 tbs Dill
4oz Salmon
Salt and Pepper

1) Mix Together all ingredients
2) Chill in Fridge until ready to serve

**FYI: The more it sits the more "salmony" it gets - for me and Eddie it was too fishy the next day but Eddie's family loved it so be prepared depending on how much of a salmony flavor you want

Chocolate Pretzel Bites 

Square Pretzels
Hershey Kisses

1) Pre-Heat Oven to 200 degrees
2) Place Pretzels on Cookie Sheet and top with a Hershey Kiss
3) Place in Oven until Chocolate melts (about 5 minutes)
4) Top each Kiss with a M&M

Spicy Chicken Poppers
Frank's Hot Sauce
Chicken Tenders
1 tbs Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Garlic Powder
Whole Wheat Flour
1) Marinade Chicken Tenders in Franks Hot Sauce for at least 1 hr
2) Remove Chicken Tenders from Hot Sauce and Chop into bite size pieces
3) Mix together salt, pepper, cayenne, paprika, and garlic powder and sprinkle over tenders until they are all covered
4) Pre-Heat Fryer or Oil to 375 degrees
5) Coat Tenders in Whole Wheat Flour
6) Fry for 4 minutes
**You don't need to use all the seasoning mix just use enough to cover the tenders
**For less spicy bites add the seasoning mix to the flour rather than directly on the tenders
**Serve with BBQ Sauce or your favorite dipping sauce
