There is a meal that gets neglected every year on Christmas day… lunch. Think about it. With the unwrapping of presents, breakfast is often a decadent smorgasbord of homemade cinnamon buns and sizzling bacon slices. Then, the day’s festivities are topped off with a dinner feast of ham, roasted vegetables, creamy mashed potatoes, and pie. But what about lunch?! It is the most overlooked and underrated part of the day. Well, let’s adopt this little sad food baby and give it a home. I am reclaiming this yuletide meal with a recipe for Christmas Pork Patty Sliders with the help of Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Sausage and H-E-B.
Since I moved to Texas last year, H-E-B is my go-to supermarket for holiday prep. It has all the quality ingredients you’ll need to put together the year’s most important meals. I also love how convenient it is to shop at the store, especially when you’re trying to find a range of products on your list. So, while you’re on a quest to find every last ingredient for the decadent yuletide breakfast and dinner you have planned, make sure to pick up the essentials for my Christmas Pork Patty Sliders. Trust me, these sliders are deceptively easy to make and everyone will think you had magical elves helping in the kitchen. I specifically recommend the Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Original Pork Sausage Patties for this recipe. They are as warm and delicious as Christmas day itself and have a unique blend of Jimmy Dean signature seasoning that is hard to beat. In addition, it’s nice to incorporate a Tyson® product into this holiday recipe since they are sure to be scrumptious. By adding the Jimmy Dean® patties, it’s a quick way to make a functional, no fuss dish and get back to spending quality time with the family. So, take out your recipe cards because it’s time to get cooking…
