Unusual Christmas dinner dishes?

    Unusual Christmas dinner dishes?

    What is the most unusual dish that was ever served at your family or holiday meal?

    My brother's wife once made these very unusual baked ham wraps, which was kind of like a homemade hot pocket, with a single stalk of Celery sticking out of it. I asked her what the heck it was, and she said it was a "what-cha-ma-call-it sandwhich". They looked like baked chita pets. That and I don't like Celery.

    Another weird dish, was "Mixel-mash", which was a layer baked dish. It had a layer of hamburger, mashed potato, corn...then repeat those thress layers, and top with stuffing, and bake. Very yummy.

    I make a bacon sweet potato pie that everyone seems to think is weird until they taste it. My mother in law, while not weird, certainly makes odd holiday food. Like today we had home made chicken nuggets with our meal. She is a great cook though so even the nuggets are yummy!

    Just yesterday, I had only one envelope of Stove Top Stuffing for 8 people. I wondered how can I stretch this no bread? I decided to saute some green peppers, onions, mushrooms and seasonings. I had about a cup of brown rice so I cooked that.  I added a half a cup of bread crumbs. I mixed it all up and told everyone, "this is brown rice stuffing," like it was a real recipe. It looked weird (won't say what it looked like to me with those grains of rice poking out) but it tasted pretty good.

    Everybody loves a good dinner and a traditional Christmas dinner but however sometimes making something different and unusual makes an extra feast. People sometimes get skittish about different foods they have never tried and also won't try something they like if it's cooked different or looks different. I find that people will try different things at different gatherings so nobody's feelings get hurt.

    I made a mushroom quiche, which consisted of a variety of different mushrooms. It was mixed with cream cheese, sour cream,eggs,spices and chedder cheese. After it baked for 30 minutes in the oven I drizzeled melted butter and crumbled bleu cheese over the top and popped back in the oven for about 5 more minutes. It was a big hit and everyone loved it!
