The holidays are coming up on us, right? They will be here before we know it and our everyday life has to continue happening which makes life busy and crazy all in one. If you are like most, you catch yourself coming and going being pulled in many different directions. Unfortunately the holiday season doesn’t slow us down a whole lot. It does a little but not like you would think. With cooking, hosting and traveling it makes it busy. I’d like to share a few tips I’ve found helpful along with one of my favorite recipes to take to any holiday party, have on hand if I’m hosting guests or have for our family as it’s a favorite! This season is all about friends and the celebration. So instead of using so much of our energy on cooking I want you to have more time with your friends and family…here are a few tips…
1- Plan Ahead
It’s been said but I’ll say it again…have a plan and plan ahead! If you want to win you must plan. I’m a firm believer in planning and I think it eases stress and keeps your life a bit more organized. Grab a pen and paper and plan what you need to do or what you need to prep for the coming holidays.
2- Choose Something You LOVE to eat
When planning your meals or what you need to take to a party choose something you LOVE to eat and will look forward to. If you try a new recipe, that’s ok maybe have a backup plan incase you don’t love it. Which might just take you into tip #3…
3- Let someone else do it for you
If you’re too busy there are some great take and go foods you can bring to any party or family gathering! Let Walmart help you spend more time around the table with Tyson® brand products you can impress all your friends with new recipes or grab an oldie-but-goodie and spice it up!
4- Prep in Advance
If your recipe will allow you to prep in advance, DO IT! I love prepping in advance or freezing cookie dough if I have to. It can relieve a lot of pressure if you find recipes you can have ready ahead of time.
5- Prepare something that can be done for more than one event
Make your recipe duel! The recipe I’m sharing can be an appetizer as well as a breakfast. Double your recipe and make enough for you a meal and for your party or guests that you are hosting. If you can scratch two things off of your list at once, DO IT!
I want to share our FAVORITE go to recipe when it comes holiday breakfast tradition…I don’t remember a Thanksgiving and Christmas breakfast that didn’t include Sausage Balls using the Jimmy Dean® Roll Sausage or a breakfast without bacon and the Wright® Brand Bacon Hickory Smoked has become a new favorite!
- 3 Cups Bisquick
- 1 Pkg Jimmy Dean® Roll Sausage
- 1 Cup Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese
- Combine all 3 ingredients in a mixing bowl. (best way to combine is by hand- wash hands prior to touching ingredients!)
- Pinch mix to create 1" balls by rolling by hand
- Place on a greased baking pan
- Bake 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until browned
- Serve hot and enjoy!
