Christmas Traditions

I think every family has a few Christmas traditions. I thought I would share a couple of my own.

Christmas Biscuits
Every Christmas morning my mom makes what I always call "Christmas biscuits". These are really special because they are so good and only  made 1 day a year. I guess we could make them more but that takes the fun away. We eat them basically all morning with our mimosas and always make extra to nom on later. I asked my mom to share her recipe...

These are not ours but look similar!

Christmas Biscuit Recipe

Yields about 20-30 biscuits. This recipe can be half but leftovers are great for snacks! They are great for days, just refridgerate leftovers.

Ingredients needed:
3 Cups of Bisquick Mix
1 Pack of Jimmy Dean Sausage (any flavor is great)
Shredded Chedder Cheese (how ever much you like)
1 cup Milk
1. Heat oven to 450
2. Mix bisquick and milk
3. Roll out half of dough flat (thin or thick as you want) on wax paper
4. Sprinkle uncooked sausage bits and chedder cheese over entire flattened dough

5. Roll the dough up with sausage and cheese in the middle and cut into slices
6. Place slices on cooking pan sprayed lightly with Pam.
7. cook 7 -10 minutes or until tops are golden.
8. For the rest of the dough, repeat steps 3-7 for the second batch!

Opening a gift on Christmas eve

This started because when I was younger we use to always open our gifts from our grandparents Fran and Poppa on Christmas Eve. Well now we spend all day with my Fran so we just wait til Christmas morning to open gifts. So on Christmas Eve we always open a gift because .... well, just because we want a gift early! :)

What kind of traditions do you have?

Yum I'm definitely going to have to try these! I've been wanting to start some more traditions so this sounds like a fun and tasty one.

Yum-o those look delicious! I'm defanitely going to be trying these and probably this weekend :). We use to always open a Christmas Eve present as well and it was always Christmas Jammies. Although as time has passed and I've gotten older we've sort of stopped this. Now we just have all our friends and family over for a Christmas Eve gathering at our house.

those look delicious! One tradition that my family has always done is family Christmas presents on Christmas Eve and then Santa presents on Christmas Day, when I was a kid I thought every family did it the same way haha
