It’s important that we put this out there, simply because it’s true: we have the best customers in the world. Seriously! We had a very important question, so we put out a call on social media and you guys answered in a big way. The issue at hand? How to make the perfect stuffing for your holiday turkey. As it turns out, you love stuffing as much as we do – and you’re willing to share your secrets! The answers poured in on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter – and here’s what you said.
Good bread is key.
Pretty much every person who commented started with the same stuffing element: the bread. Some customers, such as Brittany G, said they used more than one type of bread to achieve the desired result. Whether you use french bread, love challah or live for sourdough, good bread is a must. Start by leaving it out in open air for an open or two – a good, crusty bread is the perfect starting point for your stuffing.
‘Tis the season for parties and without fail, you’ll be cooking for some of them. Whether it’s an event you’re hosting in your home or a potluck with friends, December is a time for showing off what you can do in the kitchen. If you’re looking for some holiday appetizer inspiration, look no further – here are a few favourites from the VG Meats team.
Buffalo Chicken Dip
While not a traditional holiday appetizer, this tasty dip is always a crowd-pleaser. Start with VG Meats chicken breasts that have been baked with a small amount of salt and pepper. Shred the chicken using two forks and follow this simple recipe to create the dip. Remember, when you’re buying your VG Meats chicken breasts, you can also grab some local cheese from our retail shop! We love this served with tortilla chips, celery sticks or a fresh baguette.
‘Tis the season for giving, and we’ve got some great ideas. What do you get that friend, relative, colleague or client that you want to really impress? You can go all out with a special order of our whiskey-aged beef, or maybe give that special someone a VG Meats gift card for use at our Simcoe or Stoney Creek locations. Or how about a gift basket?
In general, purchasing a gift basket can be hit-and-miss – sometimes they’re amazing and other times, you realize that you’ve spent a bunch of money on a package that’s full of styrofoam peanuts or shredded paper. That cool thing at the top of the basket? Yeah, that was the ONLY good thing in there.
But not at VG Meats. Our gift baskets are amazing, perfect for the Christmas season, and great value for your money. You always know exactly what you’re getting, and it’s always good. Here are some options – you can start crossing people off your list right now!
