I adore having food traditions during the holidays. I know some families have candy-making days, others decorate gingerbread houses, and some host cookie exchanges or peppermint parties. Us, I guess we skip the sweets and go straight for the “real” food. Christmas Eve is all about soup and Christmas Day is celebrated with a salt-packed prime rib.
As long as I can remember our family has celebrated Christmas Eve with a soup tour. For our supper, after Christmas Eve service and before family gifts, we dine on two or three choice soups. It’s the perfect meal for cold December days, wouldn’t you agree?
Interested in adding soup to your Christmas Eve? Take a moment to peek at each of these recipes. They all look divine! I’m feeling a definite pull to French onion this year and I know my hubby is going to vote for the buffalo chicken. And I know from experience that the crockpot potato soup is the perfect option to prep prior to Christmas Eve service, because, hello, coming home to a hot meal? A total yes!
