OK cooks, here we go – it is time for those holiday recipes. Start collecting your recipes and gathering the ingredients to start early. We have tried to send you our best favorites. Even if there are some you don't use during the upcoming holidays, save them for later on. I go for quick and easy but tasty. You can make a meal out of these suggestions. Be sure to try the rolls. They only have to rise once and taste so good. They are also warm and filling.
Buttermilk Breakfast Cake

1 c. buttermilk
1/2 c. melted butter

1 can of poultry seasoning and sprinkle in some sage (about 1 T.)
Hot broth from turkey or chicken to right consistency
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 c. chopped celery
water chestnuts (optional)
Melt 1 stick of butter in a baking pan and heat in oven. After you have mixed all the ingredients above, pour into the pan and cook until it begins to turn brown. This recipe is easily doubled.
Quicky Rolls (delicious)
2 c. self-rising flour
1/4 c. shortening
1/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. warm water
1 pkg. yeast
Mix together and roll out like biscuits. Cut with a large cutter and then fold over when putting in a pan greased with butter. Let them rise only once. After they have risen, bake about 10 to 12 minutes at 400 to 450 degrees or until brown. This recipe may be easily doubled.

Stand biscuits on edge in a lightly greased 12 c. bundt pan, spacing evenly. Drizzle with remaining butter and sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until golden. Immediately invert onto a serving plate. Combine powdered sugar and orange juice and stir well. Drizzle over warm over bread. Serve immediately .
