In addition to all of these holiday tasks, are you also the person responsible for preparing the Christmas meal in your family? If so, you know all too well there is a great amount of time and energy that goes into meal planning, shopping for the ingredients, and preparing and cooking the meal. What if I told you that you could make a delicious spread with all of your family’s favorite holiday foods in about an hour? Sounds too good to be true? Well, it’s not, I assure you.
I recently had the opportunity to visit my local Kenwood HoneyBaked Ham store and pick up all the essentials for an impressive holiday meal including a 2.6 lb. whole sliced glazed turkey breast, 8 lb. half ham, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, turkey gravy, and pumpkin pie. Not only was each food item delicious, they were simple to make. I literally just had to open each package, warm them up and serve. That’s it!
I was hesitant at first to believe I could purchase pre-made holiday dishes that would taste as good as what I could prepare at home, but I quickly discovered with each bite that my concerns were unfounded. Not only was I impressed, but my family (including my foodie critic husband) was as well. My husband even told me, “That’s the best ham you’ve ever made!” Little did he know all I did was warm it up!
The ham and turkey were both coated in HoneyBaked Ham’s delicious signature sweet crunch glaze and it was the perfect complement to each main dish. I also appreciated that the ham and turkey were already pre-sliced which made serving a breeze. I would absolutely purchase HoneyBaked Ham’s glazed half ham and sliced turkey breast again for a holiday party or another special occasion.
The preparation and cooking of a main course like a turkey breast and a half of a ham typically takes hours, but the side dishes can also be consuming. From my experience, when I have prepared holiday meals, I find most of my time in the kitchen is spent not on the main course but rather on the side dishes. This is why I was eager to try HoneyBaked Ham’s Heat and Share sides. For this meal I chose HoneyBaked Ham’s mashed potatoes and green bean casserole since these are two main staples of our traditional holiday meal. HoneyBaked Ham had other delicious offerings including stuffing, sweet potato soufflé, broccoli rice casserole, macaroni and cheese, and cinnamon apples. I was pleased to discover that not only were these side dishes super simple to make, but they were delicious as well.
