Favorite Christmas Recipes

It’s finally Christmas time and with Christmas comes family meals. Whether it’s Santa’s cookies, gingerbread men, or some nice Who ham, many people have Christmas food traditions, even some of our very own students at WRMS. 

Have you ever had cheese balls? Well, it’s more common than you think.  Several people eat this dish on Christmas, including 8th grader Maddie Haverkamp. Haverkamp says this savory recipe has been in her family for “about 14 years.” In a survey sent out to WRMS students, some other favorite homemade dishes included macaroni and cheese, smoked pulled pork, and green bean casserole. People also listed sweets, such as pumpkin pie, dirt cake, and a variety of cookies.

After waking up early in the morning, eagerly waiting for your parents to wake up so you can FINALLY open your Christmas presents, you’re probably running on empty. Charlie Billings, a 7th grade Comet, has a Christmas breakfast tradition. He said, “Egg croissant… we eat it for breakfast on Christmas.” Billings said the recipe has been in his family for a long time. “Since I’ve been alive, so around 11-12 years”  

You can never get enough breakfast. Yet another 7th grader Luckas Becker says a good Christmas morning treat is french toast casserole. This has been a tradition in their family. “I think we started making it about 10 years ago, my grandma started it”. Becker says he likes it because “it tastes good.” 

As you can see, there are a multitude of different and interesting Christmas foods to enjoy with the whole family. Whether it’s a savory dish or a sweet treat, there are many options to enjoy this holiday season!
