    A Few Trips To Improving Holiday Favorites

    Let's face it. The ooh's and aah's from family members when they taste a new delicious recipe you tried out just don't happen during the holidays. You're stuck making the same old classic dishes that you made last year, and the year before, and the year before that.

    But before you throw in the axe and try to put together a completely new menu, remember that holiday staples are staples for a reason! Simply freshen things up in the most delicious ways with these unique tricks that'll yield completely game-changing results.

  • All Natural Ground Stuffing

    All Natural Ground Stuffing

    Nothing is as central to a successful holiday meal as the perfect stuffing - it helps flavor your main meats and complements your side dishes, which makes a boring or bland stuffing a huge no-no! This year, take your favorite stuffing up a notch by adding savory bits of ground sausage.

    Johnsonville has a great, all natural ground stuffing recipe made with focaccia bread, sun-dried tomatoes, parmesan cheese, pimiento-stuffed olives, fresh basil, and Johnsonville Italian All Natural Ground Sausage. Get the recipe here

  • Cranberry And Apple Chutney

    Cranberry And Apple Chutney

    Cranberries are a tried-and-true holiday staple. Keep the festive flavor and pair with exciting new additions and textures by making a cranberry and apple chutney. The chunkiness and sweet flavor you know and love will pair well with the rest of your holiday meal. 

  • Butternut Squash Soup

    Butternut Squash Soup

    Want something a little different than the mashed potatoes or sweet potato bake you make every year? A creamy and nutty butternut squash soup gives you plenty of fall and winter flavor. Serve as a first course or along with your meal!

  • Gravy With Coffee

    Gravy With Coffee

    A holiday meal is not a holiday meal without gravy, but that doesn't mean you can't change it up a bit! Add a teaspoon of coffee or cocoa powder per two cups gravy to add depth and rich color. 

  • Cheddar And Jalapeno Biscuits

    Cheddar And Jalapeno Biscuits

    Biscuits are perfect for soaking up any gravy on your plate, but sometimes you want the buns to have a little bit more pizzazz! Add cheddar cheese and sliced jalapeños to biscuit mix to keep those taste buds happy. 

  • Pumpkin Pie Mousse

    Pumpkin Pie Mousse

    Pumpkin pie is a go-to dessert after many a holiday meal, but sometimes you don't have the room for all that extra crust. Simplify the dessert by making a pumpkin mousse! It ends up being pretty healthy and light without the breading. Finish with a dab of whipped cream on top! 

  • Apple Pie Streusel

    Apple Pie Streusel

    Apple pie is a dessert classic any day of the year. This year, make your pie something that your family will be raving about for weeks simply by adding an oat crumble streusel topping
