yeah. that's classic. we love our holiday sweaters. welcome back to "gma." that's looking back at our 2020 christmas sweater party. our pal, dan harris, ultimately ended up winning that, although i'm a little bit bitter.
8:10 am
that was pretty sweet, right? like the dj. i had the pack with the beats and everything. >> you had the whole attitude. >> run dmc. the good news is, coming up this year, we are setting up again but it's our christmas sweater pageant so we're looking forward to that. first, though, it is time to think food and we've got acclaimed chef and star of "alex vs. america." alex guarnaschelli is here. because it is christmas dinner, thank you so much for being here. you're already getting to work and the big deal is we've got a ham but you're going to show us how to elevate the flavor of that christmas ham. okay. get us started. >> here i just have maple syrup. >> okay. >> a great flavor with ham. and apple juice, getting that little tartness and brown sugar because you see a ham, you know what i mean? >> you need brown sugar, the crust, the sweetness, right? yes. >> that's what we want. and literally, you mix these together. this is a spiral ham so it's cooked already. little water and vegetable in the bottom and we just literally pour that, that whole glorious
8:11 am
sweet mixture right over and we bake the ham in the oven. it's already cooked so just a couple hours and you get this gloriously crusted ham. >> i have to ask you about that. because when it's precooked, sometimes it makes us more nervous because we don't know how long. what's the sweet spot to cook the already cooked ham? >> well, that's -- that's a great question. but honestly, the thing about a spiral ham is it forgives you, so if you get, you know, if you get caught up at the christmas punch bowl or whatever else, this was -- >> that's going to -- that's known to happen with rob marciano here. >> no one wants anything to do with us because everybody's eating. so we just cooked this sweet spot is a couple of hours, and you see the spiral ham, it's just almost -- it literally, you take a pair of tongs, and just a little knife, right? just slice like this. >> or a big knife. >> or a big knife. for a chef, this is a dinky knife. you're right. and you get these beautiful, crusted pieces with the
8:12 am
vegetables we cooked at the bottom of the pan. if you want to taste that. this is just the liquid from the pan. and i just cooked down a little bit. so it comes with its own built-in sauce and by the way, don't tell anybody, it's our secret, but you can do this in a crock pot if you want to put it on and forget about it. with it, i thought some apples but a little bit more of a savory idea for an apple, you just have them, cut that little middle out, melon baller. >> is there a type of apple? like a specific type that you like or prefer? >> great question. i get this apple question a lot. people, go for the firm apples. give your apple a little squeeze, like a honey crisp, granny smith, a rome, a braeburn. granny smith is great. but you know, i kind of wanted those red apples for christmas to match your dress and shades of your tie and all. we all have a little red in us. i'm wearing my christmas sweater, which is a black t-shirt. >> sure, sure. >> and then we just put those in
8:13 am
a biter buttered dish. cinnamon, ginger, salt. >> here we go. >> lemon zest, dry white wine. >> is this how we finish this off here? >> yeah, so, this is our little -- sort of like the equivalent spa treatment we gave the ham. we give that same loving facial to these apples. >> it's like a love bath for the apples. >> take a nose bath. you can smell all the flavors. but the white wine is keeping them savory. we pour this over, and you bake the apples until they're tender, 20, 25 minutes. reduce that sauce down on the stove after and go ahead, glaze, drizzle. just pour it. >> i'm going down to eat while you guys take over. >> smells so good. >> this has wine in it, right? so it's a little savory but for the people who don't want to use alcohol, that would not include me, but for those who don't want to use alcohol, is there a substitute? >> totally. i use, instead of a half a cup of wine, i would use a quarter cup of vinegar and just drop
8:14 am
that in there. absolutely. such a great question. >> this is so delicious, by the way. i'm not that kind of person who just says it. it's really good. >> i'm not a big apple person but the apple is right on. i love it. >> i love your sort of napkin, the christmas vibe. >> my clothes are very high end. >> this all looks and smells amazing but you also have something for salad lovers. >> this is called my salad of love. we need a little holiday love around here, all of us too. what's lovely about it is there are orange segments so it's a little bit fruity but it's bitter greens like endive or chicory or anything to counter the brown sugar and maple syrup notes from the ham and the apple and that creates the meal balance. you can arrange it ahead and just drizzle the dressing. we like that, everything done ahead. i noticed that you really didn't want to talk about the salad. you were like, moving on.
8:15 am
>> interesting to someone out there, here's a salad. here's dessert. fast forward. >> this looks finished. it's a trifle with cherries and chocolates, like a play on a black forest cake. put the whipped cream all over there. this is supposed to be fun. i love a dessert like a trifle because you can literally get the kids involved, come on, you pull up the stool. >> kids would love this. >> that's your idea of whipped cream. this is my idea and maybe that's my problem. and you know what's a great tool is just spread with the back of your spoon. forget the spatula. look. she's no longer -- you've left the building. >> she's done. we're assembling this trifle, tell us about your new show. > i'm so excited. it's called "alex vs. america" and all sorts of chefs who are experts in certain, you know, topics of food, come and challenge me. and we all cook off and give each other a lot of stare dennards adowns and there's a clock and sweating. it smells like aftershave and
8:16 am
fear on the set. >> trash talk, rivalry. >> give him a dessert, he's on board. >> there's a man who's never met a whipped cream he didn't like. >> alex, thank you so much. this is amazing. hank you for being here. i'm going to dig in. >> merry christmas. >> and merry christmas. >> and by the way, i was going to say, as a special christmas present, discovery plus people out there in the world can get a sneak preview of the premier of my "alex vs. america" tonight. otherwise on food network on january 2nd. >> what's the first cookoff? >> it's about seafood and i thought i knew and i got schooled. let just say that. no comment. >> we'll be watching. you can find these recipes on "good morning america" and check out alex's new show, "alex vs. america," premiering january 2nd on the food network. rob? do you have a bite in your mouth? >> i love this. tradition for my family on christmas day would be red sauce with manicotti or ravioli but i love the christmas ham. my grandfather would wear it
8:17 am
like this too. after a big dinner on christmas day, we would also go walk it off, go walk in the neighborhood, check out the christmas lights. if you live in kentucky, the christmas lights come to you. this is what the fire department does. look at that set-up. i mean, engine 59, engine 59, you are on fire, my friends. so that's a great spot. or maybe you just do what i did, which is go out and walk around the neighborhood or drive. look at this outfit. when you have neighbors like this to entertain you, that is special. and every town in america, i think, has one, two, three, maybe five neighbors that go bananas and light up their houses. that's a treat. that's something i love on christ
8:18 am
this year this year, "gma" celebrated ten years of "deals and steals." can you believe it? our source of many christmas gifts over the years and the steals guru herself is here. santa, gi giving her a bit of a breather today but she is joining us for a look back at a decade of deals. can you believe it's been ten years? >> it's pretty amazing. i'll tell you, when i first started this, i was hoping to make it to the next week, right? and i sort of think that that philosophy, i've carried that through the ten years and that's why i've made it to ten years because each week, i say, i need to treat this week like it's the only one because maybe it will be the last one if i don't. and i think viewers have responded to that. they shop every single week.
8:19 am
on thursday mornings, or now on saturday mornings as well, they wake up, buying what they didn't even know they needed because it's a surprise to them and i think that idea of always trying to make kind of this week the best week is what's enabled us to get here. >> i've told you this before but i have family members and friends who record the show and will literally scroll past everything that i do in the show to get to "deals and steals." what's the latest deal? it's had such an impact on people. but what have you learned over the course of ten years? i would imagine it's been quite a bit. >> so, i would say that, you know, a lot of times, i joke and it feels like a little bit of, like, frivolous shopping, frivolous retail therapy, which, that's okay, we need some fun in our lives. but it's actually more than just shopping, more than just saving money. in some cases, this segment has really been about saving dreams, saving livelihoods, saving jobs, and no time has that been more obvious than in the last two years where so many small businesses, thousands of small businesses saw their entire
8:20 am
pipeline just devastated, collapsed with purchase orders canceled, supply chain problems that they've faced, cash crisis because of extended payment terms from the vendors that they work with and one of the things that we saw during the covid crisis, even before the current supply change is that these small businesses had plenty of goods and no place to sell them because stores closed, and i was able to say i actually have a platform to sell, and viewers who are at home ready to buy, and my bosses said, if you want to save a small business every day, we'll give you that air time. let's do it. let's go for it. and so, "deals and steals" is really credited throughout covid with helping so many small businesses to have that bridge to survival and it saved jobs. it saved dreams, and i think that that's, you know, as important or even more important than also saving money and helping people stretch a dollar and bring the joy of discovering
8:21 am
something new. >> i think, also, in your first answer, you really gave people a tip for success as well. if you treat every week as if it could be your last, right? i'm curious in the past decade, your favorite moment, favorite deal. >> so, there's been a lot of fun things. one of my favorites is that we used to go on the road, pre-covid, and do "deals and steals on wheels," five cities in five days and it was awesome because viewers could meet the people behind the products, i could meet viewers that were shopping all the deals, they would show up decked out in their deals so we did a couple one guns. in indianapolis, we did the event from the indy 500 track and my producer there had to put me in a race car and set a gopro camera on me so it would look like i was driving that car. so michael and george were really impressed by that one. i think that's probably my favorite of all time. >> that's amazing. >> it was very fun because george and michael in the studio thought that i was at the wheel of that car. >> speed demon.

>> the power of go pros. >> that's fantastic. we appreciate you and everything that you do. >> thank you. i'm grateful to be able to do it here. >> merry christmas. >> you too. well, coming up, the can't-miss christmas classic, breaking down your yuletide watch list in "binge this." we'll be right back. >> i'm amanda, i'm currently deployed in kuwait. originally out of travis air force base, and i'm giving a shoutout to my family back home, mom, dad, can't wait to see you guys again. looking forward to coming back home, going on a cruise, it will be some great times. happy holidays. >> hello, i'm out of charleston. i'm here deployed overseas. i want to give a shoutout to all my friends and family back home in charleston, south carolina, and wish you a happy holidays. love you and miss you guys. >> i'm lisa deployed here from the 103rd air lift wing in connecticut. i want to wish all my family and

8:32 am
it's all out of love. >> how about "a christmas story." that feels like the story that you just want to keep watching unless you don't want to scare your kids to death. >> i encourage you to scare your kids to death on this holiday season. this is from 1983 but it still feels relevant today. all ralphie parker wants is his red rider bb gun but you'll shoot your eye out, kid. so there's some trials and tribulations and of course this reminds me not to stick my tongue to a frozen pole every single christmas. >> nobody has put their tongue on a post since 1983. seriously, we all -- that's it. >> unsanitary. >> it wouldn't be the holidays without "home alone," obviously. classic holiday movie. but it's kind of a mix between christmas and loony tunes because they keep getting beat up. what do you think? >> oh, yeah, the robbers are definitely the comedy relief here but i can't believe this movie is over 30 years old. >> what? >> 8-year-old kevin mccal cenal
