Christmas Day Tradition

Our Christmas Day tradition started about ten years ago. My husband bought a turkey fryer in order to cook our Thanksgiving turkey. He thought it was a waste to use it only at Thanksgiving so he decided to try Low Country Boil for Christmas. We loved it so much that it became an annual event. Now if you aren't from the south you may be asking "What exactly is Low Country Boil?"

Low Country Boil also goes by the name Frogmore Stew or Beaufort Stew. It was thought to have originated in the Low Country of South Carolina. Click here to find out more about Low Country Boil

Our version of Low Country Boil includes the following.

2lbs New Potatoes
12 Small Corn on the Cob
2 lbs Smoked Sausage
2 lbs Shrimp
1 Package of Seafood Seasoning

Fill your large cooker pot with hot water and the seafood seasoning packet. Bring to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook them for 5 minutes. Next add the corn and cook for 5 minutes. Then add the smoked sausage and cook for 5 minutes. Finally add the shrimp and cook for 3 minutes. Drain and pour contents of pot onto a large platter. Serve with Chicken and Rice, Slaw and Yeast Rolls.

Yum! Yum!
