Christmas Colored Stuffed Baguettes

Christmas Colored Stuffed Baguettes

Just stuff French baguettes with red, green, and white Christmas colored foods and that's it. You can make this a day in advance - all you need to do the day of the party is to slice it up.

4. Add shrimp and cooking liquid, red bell peppers, and the ripped bread to the bowl in Step 1. Mix well.
