In this edition of Tasty Eats. I thought I would share what we ate for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. My husband did most of the cooking. I Christmas eve he made a shrimp boil. I am not sure how he decided to make this. I am sure it was suggested in some conversation. This is something we don't normally make. However, it was delicious. I am sure he followed a recipe on the web. I can't say for sure if this is the recipe he used, but it was close: Shrimp Boil Recipe - Cooking Classy
Finally, I have the eclairs I made for Christmas morning. After seeing a Boston Cream Pie French Toast on a cooking show, I wanted to try to duplicate it. Trader Joe's usually has brioche bread, and I was going to make the French Toast with that. I guess the location I go to has been out for a while. I saw the sweet milk rolls and decided on a plan B. I made the pastry cream and chocolate ganache from a Boston Cream Pie recipe (found here). I cut the rolls in half lengthwise, filled it with the pastry cream and topped it with the chocolate ganache. We all loved them. I will have to make these again.
Here are the rolls I used:
