There’s nothing I love more than having family dinners. When I married my husband I knew that I was getting more than “just” the perfect partner for me. I also got welcomed into his family and gained new parents, sisters, nieces, nephews and so much more. I couldn’t be any luckier. We take turns hosting Sunday dinner and it’s something I always look forward to.
In our family turkey is reserved for Thanksgiving but ham, while an Easter tradition, is also enjoyed at other times throughout the year as a favorite meal. We like it because it feeds the masses and is pretty easy to make. HoneyBaked makes it even easier (and more delicious!).
With Easter approaching, we wanted to give HoneyBaked a test run. I drove down to the HoneyBaked store in Bellevue, WA. We had never been there before so we weren’t sure what to expect. I was surprised at how easy it was to just pop in and pick up a full meal to go. I told the girl behind the counter that I needed a ham to serve 8 adults. She pulled one out of the case and opened it up to show me the signature glazed crust. I almost started drooling on the spot! It looked delicious!
Next, I picked the sides. Typically we’d have potatoes au gratin but the store was temporarily out of this best seller. Instead we opted for the macaroni & cheese and herb stuffing. Since we have a lot of mouths to feed, I picked up two of each of these.
The macaroni and cheese was amazing. We nearly polished off 4 pounds of it, it was that good. We knew it would be a hit with the kids but we were a little bit skeptical when we discovered that the Heat & Serve sides are frozen. We were not disappointed, rather we were amazed at how yummy this dish came out, so rich and cheesy!
Normally stuffing is reserved for Thanksgiving but it’s one of our favorites. When I saw it I thought “Why not?!” It came out perfectly seasoned and fluffy and perfectly moist — not easy to do under normal circumstances. In this case, we just tossed it in the oven and no further action was needed!
Last but not least, THE HAM. It was phenomenal! See that crunchy glaze on top? It was the perfect mixture of sweet and spicy (think clove) that really infused the ham giving it great flavor. It’s great not having to glaze the ham yourself! To cook, just cover with foil and heat in the oven according to the weight guidelines. This spiral sliced ham didn’t have to be carved. The pieces practically fell of in perfect slices with just a little bit of assistance and were ready for the serving platter.
I loved just being able to walk in HoneyBaked and walk out with a full meal. Putting the meal together couldn’t have been any simpler! We did decide to make some mashed potatoes, gravy, and deviled eggs and added some rolls to the meal but had we wanted to, we could have gotten everything from appetizers to dessert and condiments at HoneyBaked and I’m confident that everything would meet or exceed my expectations. The Spinach Artichoke Dip and Cheesecake Sampler are both on my list to try next time!
