Hellmann's Real Holiday Helpings and a Giveaway!*CLOSED*




This chick is one amateur cook, so when I was asked by Hellmann's Mayonnaise to take part in their Real Helpings Holiday Program I jumped at the chance. I am new to the holiday cooking scene and thought why not give this website a look and see what would benefit not only me, but my readers as well.

Hellmann's Mayonnaise and celebrity chef Bobby Flay have teamed up to give their viewers some special holiday recipes. Some are recipes we see every year and they have also added a new spin to our old favorites.

One recipe I plan on making is their stuffing muffins. Stuffing is a holiday staple at our holiday parties, so I thought this would be a great new way to incorporate stuffing into the holiday mix!



Stuffing Muffins

Makes: 12 muffins
Prep Time: 10 minute(s)
Cook Time: 40 minute(s)

Ingredients:
1 can (14.5 oz. ) Chicken Broth
1 cup Hellmans® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
6 cups unseasoned cube stuffing mix
1/8 tsp. dried sage leaves and thyme leaves crushed
1 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley, optional

Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
2. Combine broth with Hellmann's® or Best Foods Real Mayonnaise®.
3. Toss Mayonnaise mixture with stuffing mix in large bowl, until liquid is absorbed, about 4 minutes. Evenly divide mixture into prepared pan, pressing firmly and mounding slightly.
4. Bake 40 minutes or until muffins are golden.

Bobby Flay has also added his own holiday recipes to the site. The newbie in me thought I could never follow a big-time chef's recipe. Bobby Flay and Hellmann's have added some how-to videos showing the step by step process with real people making the dish with Mr. Flay himself. He even shows how easy it is to have your child make these special holiday dishes right along with you. What more could a parent ask for than sharing the holiday cooking magic with their child.

A few extras they have included are a coupon for $1 off of Hellmann's Mayonnaise products, and a chance to win groceries for a whole year!

Make sure you stop by Hellmann's Real Holiday Helpings site to learn more about the great recipes, tips, and videos. Be sure to enter for free groceries! What family couldn't use free groceries?

I'd like to make the Celebration Cheese Spread. I'm usually in charge of snacks for our family's holiday get-together and this would be great with a cracker tray to curb those pre-meal hungries.
