It shouldn’t be any surprise to anyone, mine is ham.
Last week, I wanted to do a practice run for our Christmas-eve dinner – which we always have at home, just the three of us. I headed to the HoneyBaked Ham store in Livonia, Mich. to get what I needed. Because I’m all about making meal preparation as easy as possible – and HoneyBaked makes it super easy – I decided to get the pre-cut ham slices that they sell by the pound.
One of my favorite things about HoneyBaked is its selection of Heat & Share Sides. As the name implies, all you have to do is heat them up – right in the package! While I was in the store, I picked up packages of their garlic roasted mashed potatoes and cinnamon apple slices. You can either heat the sides up in the oven, or the microwave. When I cooked for my Thanksgiving post, I used the oven. However, as I was cooking for this post, I was running short on time (super-busy workday) and used the microwave. There were chunky parts of the garlic roasted mashed potatoes that weren’t cooked all the way through. I highly recommend using the oven, instead.
I also wanted to try their signature sweet potato soufflé, unfortunately, they didn’t have any on hand. So, instead, I made some Italian-cut green beans I had on hand, for the second side.
Now, I know you’re wondering what I did with the cinnamon apple slices. Well, I made a pie – quite possibly the ugliest pie ever made, but I received rave reviews on taste from the hubster and the kid. To make, I just bought some pie crusts from the store, added the apples and voila – ugly, but yummy, apple pie.
In addition to the above, I also picked up some of these…
Don’t they look delicious? They’re brand new to HoneyBaked Ham. I can’t wait to try them.
