Hormel Country Crock Side Dish Challenge + Giveaway

 I just took the Hormel™Country Crock® “Side Dish Challenge." My husband had to work Thanksgiving night so we did the test run with the Hormel Country Crock with the meal I prepared for us. I then served dinner & left overs to my guest that visited Thanksgiving Night. I have to admitted I kind of felt like a cheat cooking or should I say heating up in the microwave. Really the main things I had to cook was dressing and beans, and pumpkin pie, then the turkey for my guests. I even bought a pre-cooked ham that I just heated.
My husband was expecting his moms recipe of stewed potatoes, well instead he got the Hormel Country Crock loaded potatoes. They were our favorite, so delicious and flavorful made with 100% Russet Potatoes, sour cream, bacon, and chives. These are a must try easy side dish!!

We also enjoyed the Hormel County Crock Cheddar Broccoli Rice made with real cheese and nice chucks of broccoli and turned out to be my moms favorite side dish. The side dish of mashed sweet potatoes with brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg was ok plain, but I thought it would be better mixed up into a sweet potato pie so, I will have to try that for Christmas. Hormel County Crock Cinnamon Apples was a great dessert and true to the package it is perfect with ice cream.
These side dishes made my meals less stressful. Thanks to Hormel one of my readers will win 4 coupons for Hormel™Country Crock® Side Dishes of their choice and don't forget to follow Hormel on facebook.
