Cookbook Review: The Christmas Table & a GIVEAWAY
**This giveaway has ended. Thank you to everyone who participated.
*The postwoman dropped off the latest Gooseberry Patch Early Reviewer book and it is a good one! I love getting a sneak peek at these books and it is even more exciting to be able to give away a copy of the book. Read through the whole post for directions on how to enter the giveaway.
Gooseberry Patch’s The Christmas Table is a spiral bound cookbook with hundreds of recipes perfect for the holidays. Many of the recipes are great to bring or serve at parties. There are six sections: Cozy Christmas Brunch; Chill-Chasing Soups and Breads; Caroling Party Supper; Classic Christmas Dinner; Festive Holiday Fare; Sweet Treats to Share. Though many of the recipes definitely have a holiday feel, they can be used throughout the year. Many of the recipes have less than twelve ingredients and a lot of the ingredients are things that you likely have in your pantry.
The first recipe I tried was from the Cozy Christmas Brunch section. It was a crab quiche and it caught my eye because it seemed very easy but also kind of a luxurious snack.
5 T. all-purpose flour
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup green onion, chopped
8 oz. package of shredded Swiss cheese
6 oz can of crabmeat, drained and flaked
9inch pie crust
Combine flour, mayo, eggs and milk in a large bowl and stir. Stir in onions, cheese and crabmeat. I forgot to flake the crab meat and I don’t think it affected the dish. Also, I only used a 5oz package of shredded Swiss cheese. It was on sale and there was no 8oz package to be seen. Pour the mixture into an unbaked pie crust.
Bake uncovered at 350 for 40-45 minutes.
This quiche was delicious! As it baked, the kitchen smelled wonderful. It was beautiful and would have been perfect for a brunch or meal with friends.
I thought it was only fitting that this recipe was on the same page as a lovely story about Christmas Eve pajamas, a tradition that is important to us in the Threaded Together household!
Even though I had my mom stop by and have some for dinner (she loved it too!), I still had a lot of the quiche leftover. I cut it into pie slice pieces and froze it in individual bags. I had a piece for dinner tonight and it still tasted great.
