The Best Roasted Chestnuts

These Chestnuts are lightly pan tossed and roasted until they’re ready to peel, then sauteed in butter and seasoned to perfection.  This recipe is finished off in the oven for just a few more minutes until these nuts are golden brown.  They are very nutty in flavor, lightly salty and sweet with Cinnamon and Ground Clove, .  If that sounds like something you’re interested in, then this Roasted Chestnut recipe is for you.

Chestnuts are in Season

One of the biggest reasons why Roasted Chestnuts are a Holiday Classic is because, in the month of December, they are in season.  That’s right, these little beauties make their debut early in the month and farmers go to town.  Even though I put together a fun little “how to” tutorial to make and roast these your self, you’d be doing your self a favor if you headed over to YouTube and watched some of the stories behind local farmers and people that grew up with Chestnut trees right in their own backyards.  For me, it was really nice to a see some of the history behind the nut that has inspired traditions and Christmas songs around the world.

Also, Check out my Holiday Coffee recipe and my Toasted Marshmallow Hot Chocolate.  Both recipes are excellent and they pair off nicely with a bowl of Roasted Chestnuts.

I love Drop Biscuits

This is the perfect Drop Biscuits recipe for you.  They are very light and fluffy and they pack a sweet buttery flavor that just melts in your mouth.  They only take a few minutes to mix and they are in and out of the oven in practically no time at all.  I would dare say that this Drop Biscuits recipe is better than KFC’s Biscuits.  And if you’re making Biscuits and Gravy then this is most definitely the recipe for you.  But, I would highly recommend that you try them with my family Egg Gravy.

My Egg Gravy recipe doesn’t have the traditional sausage base, which is fantastic by the way, no my egg gravy recipe derives it’s flavor from bacon and I can personally guarantee that it’s the best breakfast gravy you will ever have.  So I’ll include a link for that, down below, plus a link to my Scotch eggs recipe; which is another fun filled breakfast recipe.
