    Hi All :wave:

    We're having Christmas dinner at our house and I'm looking for some great Jello recipes. We'll be having both a ham and a turkey and all the usual fixings, so we're pretty open to suggestions. Any great combinations that you like? Do tell.

    Thanks,

    Suzy

    Here's an idea that's more of a dessert:

    take a large of box of Jello (Safeway brand works too) and instead of adding 3 cups water reduce it to 1.5 cups. Then add .5-1 tub whipped cream; reduced fat or regular (I have found that thawed works better than frozen). Whisk until melted. Refridgerate for a few hours. When ready it will have two layers. This is very yummy! :earboy2:

    Here are a couple of my favorites . . .

    Cranberry/Raspberry Jell-O

    This salad is absolutely yummy with turkey!

    1 small can crushed pineapple (do not drain)
    1 can whole cranberry sauce
    10 pkg. frozen raspberries, thawed
    6 oz. pkg. raspberry Jell-O

    Dissolve Jell-O in 2 c. boiling water. Let Jell-O partially set. Stir in remaining ingredients. Chill and let completely set. Enjoy!


    My Favorite Jell-O Salad

    This is great with ham, and sometimes I'll make just the topping, thin it down with a bit of extra pineapple juice, and use it was a dip for fruit. Ummmmmm!

    2 small pkg. orange Jell-O, water as directed on package
    3 bananas, sliced
    1 2-lb. can crushed pineapple (reserve juice)
    2 or 3 C. mini marshmallows

    Prepare Jell-O until syrupy. Add bananas (sliced), pineapple, and marshmallows. Pour into a 9 x 13" pan. Refrigerate until firm.

    Topping
    1/2 c. sugar
    1 egg, beaten
    1/2 c. pineapple juice
    1 T. butter
    8-oz. Cool Whip
    In saucepan, beat egg. Add sugar and pineapple juice. Cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Add butter. Cool and fold into Cool Whip or Dream Whip. Put on Jell-o mixture.


    Mandarin Orange Salad

    8 oz. Cool Whip
    17 oz. pineapple chunks, drained
    17 oz. mandarin orange slices, drained
    24 oz. cottage cheese
    6 oz. pkg. orange-flavored Jell-O
    Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir together thoroughly. Do this gently, so as not to break up the fruit. Place in a mold of your choice and let set in refrigerator for several hours before serving.
