Brooklynn’s Easter Rolls

“Live your life to be a good example of what you believe.”  — Elder Robert D. Hales

This is the delicious roll recipe Brooklynn made for Easter:

Ingredients:

  • Rhodes frozen rolls
  • butter
  • garlic powder
  • salad supreme seasoning
  • Parmesan cheese

Directions:

Let rolls thaw about an hour.

Dip them in melted butter and twist them like a bow tie and line them up in a glass baking dish.

Brush them with butter, then sprinkle them with garlic powder, salad supreme seasoning, and Parmesan cheese (optional).

Let them rise for 2-3 hours and then bake for 15 minutes.

Best Funeral Potatoes

This is my favorite version of the many funeral potato recipes there are.  The ingredient ratio just seems perfect.  I use it for Christmas Eve and Easter dinner, and any other occasion where something special is called for.

Ingredients:

  • 1 28-oz. bag shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 2 c. sour cream
  • 1 10-oz. can cream of chicken (or cream of mushroom) soup
  • 2 1/4 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • OPTIONAL: Crushed cornflakes, seasoned bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 350.   Combine thawed hash browns, sour cream, cream of chicken soup, cheese, salt, and pepper and mix well.  Add additional salt and pepper if necessary.

Spread the mixture into a 9×13″ (or similar) dish and bake for 50-60 minutes or until the casserole is hot in the center and the cheese is bubbly throughout.

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” J.R.R. Tolkien

Ingredients

  • 1 (5 pound) ready-to-eat ham
  • 1/4 cup whole cloves
  • 1/4 cup dark corn syrup (or brown sugar)
  • 2 cups honey
  • 2/3 cup butter
 You can use a 12 pound ham with the same amount of cloves, brown sugar, honey and butter.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Score ham, and stud with the whole cloves. Place ham in foil lined pan.
  3. In the top half of a double boiler, heat the corn syrup, honey and butter. Keep glaze warm while baking ham.
  4. Brush glaze over ham, and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Baste ham every 10 to 15 minutes with the honey glaze. During the last 4 to 5 minutes of baking, turn on broiler to caramelize the glaze. Remove from oven, and let sit a few minutes before serving. –From Allrecipes.
