DON’T SHOW UP EMPTY HANDED JUST BECAUSE YOU WORK 40+ HOURS/WEEK!
The average business person who works 40 hours per week (or more) often cannot find time to make a treat for a holiday, but no one wants to show up empty handed.
Here are three Holiday recipe suggestions from folks in the Visibility office to help you through the festivities this holiday season. Don’t show up empty handed!
Sausage Treats (Appetizer)
2- 16oz (1lb) packages of Jimmy Dean Saugus Meat
1-15oz Jar of Kraft Cheez Wiz
1 Package of Deli Party Breads (type is at the preferences of the chef)
1 Jar of Paprika
--Fry both packages of Jimmy Dean Sausage Meat in a pan until cooked. Drain the Grease. Melt in the full jar of Kraft Cheez Wiz until sausage and Cheez Wiz are well mixed. Scoop onto party breads. Sprinkle with Paprika upon Serving. Best served if toasted briefly in the oven (on a cookie sheet) when served.
Corn Casserole (Dinner Side Dish)
1-15 & ¼ oz can of Whole Kernel Corn, drained
1-14 & ¾ oz can of Cream-Style Corn
1-8oz Package of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
1 cup of Sour Cream
½ cup of Butter, melted
1 to 1 & ½ cups shredded Cheddar Cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9- by 9-inch baking pan or a 2-quart casserole dish.
Mix together the corn, Jiffy, sour cream, and butter in a large bowl. Stir in the cheese. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 55 minutes, or until golden brown and set. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
Note: You can bake for shorter time in a 9x13, but the texture will be different than backing in the 9x9 or 2-quart casserole dish. The 9x13 will be thin slices where the 2-quart casserole dish produces more of a corn pudding texture. Either way is delicious.
Chocolate Trifle (Dessert)
2-round pre-made Angel Food Cakes (can bake your own if you prefer)
2-packages Chocolate Pudding, Instant
2-containers Cool Whip
Break Angel food cake into small pieces and spread a layer across the bottom of a large glass bowl (or trifle dish). Spread a layer of pudding on top of the cake layer. Spread a layer of cool whip on top of the pudding layer. Repeat these layers until bowl is filled to the top. If desired, sprinkles or candy can be scattered across the top for visual (and texture) effect. Serve cold. Note: portion sizes of ingredients vary depending on size of bowl. (This can also be made as a strawberry short cake by substituting packaged strawberries for chocolate pudding)
