While on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, country music superstar Luke Bryan revealed more about his family’s unique go-to Christmas Eve meal— chili dogs! The Georgia native’s mother, LeClaire, has made preparations for the yearly dinner into an all-day event for herself and her famous son.
“It’s literally, it’s her time to have with me. She has this chili recipe, she spends so much time on it. I think some of her cigarette ashes land in it… You know she’s in there, like ‘did anybody see that? Just stir it,'” Luke humorously shared with the host while pretending to be handling a cigarette.
The country star also shared that, “the next morning, Christmas morning around the tree, you’re not happy about that chili.”
A chili dog Christmas Eve dinner complete with oyster crackers, we can get behind that delightfully simple offering even if the aftermath is a little scary.

The close-knit Bryan family comprises of Luke’s parents Tommy and LeClaire, his wife Caroline Boyer Bryan, their sons Thomas Boyer Bryan “Bo” and Tatum Christopher Bryan “Tate,” and teenage nephew Tilden “Til.” The teen’s older sisters, Kris and Jordan, are also frequent visitors to the family’s Tennessee home. The trio of siblings tragically lost both parents, Luke’s older sister, Kelly, passed away in 2007, followed by her husband Ben Lee Cheshire in 2014.
