Simply Savory Holiday Traditions

Dec 08, 2014 03:44AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Food




The time has come to begin planning your holiday celebrations – filled with tasty food and happy guests.

To ensure a savory and stress-free holiday, Jimmy Dean Chef Jill Houk shares her favorite go-to recipes and tips:

  • To feel confident in the kitchen, fill most of your holiday feast with recipes you’ve made before and then add one or two new dishes to the mix.
  • Whether you’re preparing a traditional side dish or a hearty appetizer, you can make your holiday staples extra special by incorporating flavorful ingredients, such as high quality Jimmy Dean sausage. Known for its great taste and quality, Jimmy Dean sausage comes in varieties that feature seasonal flavors such as sage, so traditional dishes like stuffing are as flavorful as ever.
  • Roasts, hams and turkeys need time to rest after they come out of the oven and before you slice and serve them – anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours. Use this time to cook quick items like vegetables, stuffing and dinner rolls.
  • Have a great mix of colors in your holiday dishes. Top green veggies with bright slices of citrus, add cranberries to your salad and serve your main dish on a brightly-colored platter.

Fill your holidays with flavor by trying one of these crowd-pleasing recipes or visit www.jimmydean.com for even more ideas.
