Bosnian Christmas in Oregon

Bosnian Christmas in Oregon

Christmas dinner. Maybe because it’s so soon after Thanksgiving, but I just can’t get too excited about the traditional American meal. And since I always love to try new things and I have this horrible predisposition to attack new recipes the day of big events….why not make all new recipes for Christmas dinner? My 17 year old daughter has always been intrigued by Sarajevo. She knows quite a bit about this capital and from choosing Bosnia and Herzegovina for a school project. So this ended up being the cuisine we picked for Christmas, a family Bosnian Christmas dinner! 

Linked below are the recipes I followed.

Pita Sa Krompirom (Potato Pies)
There was a bit of a snafu with the phyllo dough. Yes, operator error. Points to self! My brother in law came to rescue and we improvised a bit, still tasty and even better the next day with eggs (second picture 😉)
