The Blue Bloods cast disclosed their own family recipes and compiled them into a cookbook. But Bridget Moynahan, who plays Erin Reagan, has an unusual Christmas Eve meal.
There is a cookbook for ‘Blue Bloods.’
Every episode features the Reagans gathered around the dinner table. They catch up on their lives, and the custom has a heartwarming origin.
Jamie (Will Estes) explained to Eddie (Vanessa Ray) that they are having dinner “because my grandmother grew up poor in a small town in Ireland.” He was the oldest of twelve children, and there was never enough food. She relocated to New York in order to generate money.
When she met my grandfather, she promised herself that they would always have more than enough to eat. Every week, family supper was her method of proudly demonstrating that.”
Moynahan has decided to publish The Blue Bloods Cookbook. Several cast members contributed recipes to the book.
“Every member of the cast gave a recipe,” Moynahan told CBS. “What’s been good about the cast is that everyone eats differently. Will [Estes] is a vegan.
His recipe was radically different from everyone else’s… it’s more of a meat-and-potatoes cookbook. Tom Selleck’s wife contributed a recipe for Shepherd’s Pie, which was delectable. It’s interesting to see what everyone grew up with.”
Swedish meatballs are her Christmas recipe.
Bridget Moynahan prepares a special Christmas Eve dish that is sure to be a favorite in the Reagan household!
Most families celebrate the holiday with ham, but the star’s family consumes a different type of meat. For Christmas Eve, Moynahan’s family loves meatballs.
1 pound of beef and 1/4 pound ground pork are used in the recipe to make 15 meatballs. Finally, it can be accompanied by egg noodles, rice, toast, or mashed potatoes.
The recipe is in Moynahan’s cookbook, but it has also been published online.
A ham recipe is also included in the cookbook.
If you don’t want to bring Moynahan’s meal to your Christmas table, the book also includes recipes that are traditionally associated with the season. There is a glazed ham recipe.
“We had a glazed ham for dinner once, which inspired the one for the book,” Moynahan told CBS. “It was a sweet and salty combination.” The glazed ham was deliciously crunchy. In between takes, we couldn’t stop pulling the crispy chunks off.”
The cast has discussed eating during the meal sequences at specific times. So it’s hardly unexpected that they enjoyed some of the ham while filming.
