A Christmas morning tradition is “overnight caramel rolls”.
Throw the ingredients together before you go to bed on Christmas Eve…and turn the oven on in the morning. Bake them while the presents are being opened!
Overnight Caramel Rolls
18 frozen dinner rolls (unbaked dough)
1-3 5/8 oz package vanilla pudding mix, NOT instant
1/2c brown sugar, packed
1/2c butter, melted
1/2c pecans, chopped (optional)
Place the rolls in a greased 12-cup fluted tube pan. Pour 1/4c melted butter over rolls. Combine the pudding mix and brown sugar, sprinkle half of the mixture over the rolls. Pour the remaining butter over the rolls, sprinkle remaining mixture over butter. Sprinkle with the pecans.
Let the rolls raise for 8 hours or overnight at room temperature. Heat oven to 350F. Bake for 15-20 minutes and wait for the hugs! Recipe from”Potluck for 24,000″, and submitted by Yvonne Pedersen.
Liz let us know about her “Crockpot Chicken” & I tried it….fabulous.
I made it a little spicey but you can reduce the heat with a little sour cream.
Easy and delightfully good.

I made “chili for a crowd” tonight – what a tasty and easy recipe! While on a trip to Atlantic City we visited the Renault Winery. The little cafe next door offered chili with mac-n-cheese – YUMMY! Tonight I made mac-n-cheese and topped it with “Chili for a Crowd”, my husband described it as “FABULOUS, AWESOME and so simple it’s brilliant.” Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe!

A few years ago, I started a new Christmas morning breakfast: scrambled eggs in puff pastry, with Bearnaise sauce.
Bake the frozen puff pastry per instructions on the package.
Late in the baking time, scramble eggs and make Bearnaise sauce (powdered mix from McCormick & Schmick is easy, and keeps the calories down).
When the pastry is done, cut out the top circle, return pastries & tops to the oven briefly to dry a bit.
Fill pastries with scrambled eggs (OK if it goes over the brim).
Perch the top at the peak of the concoction, and drizzle Bearnaise sauce to taste.
