14 of the Best Christmas Recipes
This is the 5th Christmas since I started food blogging, but I haven't shared a ton of Christmas recipes. You see, there are two types of food bloggers, those that are prepared well in advance, making Christmas recipes and photographing them in August, and then there is me. I only made two Christmas recipes this year. The first is Overnight Eggs Benedict Casserole, which would be perfect for Christmas morning!
The week before that I shared a indulgent Reese's Peanut Butter No-Bake Cheesecake. Personally, I would eat that anytime, anywhere, but I'm sure that's just me, right?
I've haven't shared a main course Christmas dinner recipe like Prime Rib or ham yet, so for that may I suggest Slow Cooker Christmas Ham from All Roads Lead to the Kitchen? It looks delicious!
Potato Fondantes made with baby Yukon Gold potatoes are an excellent holiday side dish that goes with any main course. Try this recipe from Life Currents.
It's Yummi made festive Cranberry Brussels Sprouts Potato Pancakes. These are quick and easy to make, using frozen shredded potatoes. Cranberries, Brussels Sprouts, and potatoes, all the best holiday side dishes in one!

Brownies anyone? Peppermint Fudge Topped Brownies, chocolate Fudge Brownies with a thick layer of fudge and a layer of crushed peppermint candy canes, from Big Bear's Wife will make anyone's Christmas merrier.
Finally, we need gifts. Food and drinks make great gifts, and who doesn't love candy? Cinnamon Rock Candy from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch is homemade candy great for kids or adults.
