I set the food buffet style on kitchen table starting with:
bacon and cheddar quiche, the dish my family eats every Christmas morning
French toast casserole with praline topping served with maple syrup and a honey whiskey sauce (a big hit!)
Carrie's Christmas scones (you can also see the whiskey sauce in the creamer near the centerpiece)
orange cranberry scones
along with veggies and a fruit salad. I had also planned to serve sausage balls, but I had a slight smoke issue with the oven and had to turn it off--but more on that warning when I share the French toast casserole recipe (which I would totally make again...with proper precautions).
After a break to digest, I brought out the desserts:
and peppermint white chocolate cupcakes.
I served a couple of special beverages too: cranberry mimosas and Christmas tea!
The Christmas tea reminded me a bit of wassail, but had a strong black tea as a base before adding fruit juices.
I'll share many of the recipes from this party later this week. Thanks for stopping by!
