Posted: Updated:

Here are holiday appetizer recipes for Santa's Shrimp and Grits and Holiday Ham and Eggs, courtesy of The Fifth restaurant in Orlando.

Santa's Shrimp and Grits


cooked stone ground grits

cooked shrimp, chopped

small diced red bell pepper

small diced jalapeno
lemon zest
Vermont white cheddar
all purpose flour
egg combined with water
panko crumbs
salt and pepper


Step one:

Combine grits, shrimp, lemon and cheese together in a mixing bowl.

Step two:

Using a scoop, form 24 round balls and place on parchment paper. Toss balls with flour and shake off excess. Roll in egg wash, toss in panko and then tap off excess. Chill until ready to cook.

Step three:

Place fritters in 350 degree fryer for approximately 3-5 minutes or until golden brown. Drain excess oil on paper towels and serve immediately.

The Fifth's Holiday Ham and Eggs


large eggs


cornichons, minced

goat cheese

Dijon mustard

minced shallot

snipped chives

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

country ham or prosciutto


Step one:

In a large saucepan, cover the eggs with cold water and bring to a boil over high heat. Remove from the heat and let the eggs stand in the hot water for 10 minutes. Transfer the eggs to an ice water bath until chilled, about 5 minutes.

Step two:

In a medium bowl, mix the mayonnaise, cornichons, goat cheese, mustard, shallot and 1 teaspoon of the chives. Peel the eggs and halve them lengthwise. Add the yolks to the bowl, mix until smooth and season with salt and pepper.

Step three:

Set the egg whites on a serving platter. Scrape the egg yolk mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip and pipe the filling into the whites; alternatively, spoon in the filling with a teaspoon. Top each egg with a piece of country ham, sprinkle with the remaining 1 teaspoon of chives and serve.
