Picture this: A holiday party. You’re either hosting or supposed to bring an easy dish or two.

How about EASY and DELICIOUS buttery and bacon-topped cornbread and/or Pork Sliders filled to the brim with cranberry sauce/mustard. People at the party will say, “I MUST have this recipe.” Or “This must have taken you HOURS to make!” And you can smile and share your recipe. I’ll make it easy for you by sharing them here! Party passers are my favorite types of recipes and while both of my recipes would be excellent dishes for it, you can also enjoy them with a sit down dinner.

Hatfield has launched new flavors of dry rub seasoned pork tenderloins and loin filets and they are SO GOOD. For my sliders recipe, I used Cracked Black Pepper, but they will all work well. The thing is, it was time to reimagine our holiday meals. We have our go-to recipes and they’re fun but enough is enough. We go to the same parties every year – we can’t serve the same dishes. That’s boring! It was time for new dishes and new flavors using Hatfield Pork Tenderloin and their Maple Brown Sugar Extra Thick Cut Triple Smoked Bacon. Two exciting new dishes.

When I cook around the holidays, it’s always a mix of friends and family walking in and out. I love that. I love that our house is a place people like to visit – with its ski lodge vibe and the amazing smells of Hatfield products! And I love the simplicity. These are easy, delicious, stress-free, hassle-free, delicious-smelling, make-ahead meals. I’m a big fan of simple meal solutions for the holiday season. And the recipes are kid-friendly and picky-eater approved by both of my kids!

Cornbread With Thick Maple Brown Sugar Extra Thick Cut Triple Smoked Bacon

Cornbread With Thick Maple Brown Sugar Extra Thick Cut Triple Smoked Bacon

Ingredients

  1. 1/2 pound Hatfield Maple Brown Sugar Extra Thick Cut Triple Smoked Bacon, diced
  2. 1.5 cups cornmeal
  3. 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
  4. 1 tablespoon sugar
  5. 1 tablespoon baking powder
  6. 1 teaspoon salt
  7. 4 tablespoons butter
  8. 1.75 cups fresh buttermilk
  9. 3 eggs
  10. 4 ounces (1/2 a block) of sharp cheddar, grated

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 375
  • 2. Heat your Hatfield Bacon in a skillet over medium until the fat renders and the bacon is crispy
  • 3. Remove it with a slotted spoon (so no grease escapes) and set it aside
  • 4. Meanwhile, mix together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt
  • 5. Melt half the butter in the microwave and stir it into the batter
  • 6. Add the buttermilk and eggs
  • 7. Lastly, fold in the crispy bacon and cheddar cheese
  • 8. Keep some bacon for the top - you'll want most in the batter and some on top too
  • 9. Add the rest of the butter to the skillet and melt it into the bacon fat
  • 10. Pour the batter into the skillet and spread it evenly
  • 11. Sprinkle the remaining butter and cheese on top and bake for 30 minutes
  • 12. Let it cool and enjoy!

For my second recipe for Pork Holiday Sliders, it only takes about 35 minutes of cooking time. To serve four, you’ll need a Hatfield Dry Rub Seasoned Pork Tenderloin. (we used Cracked Black Pepper) Preheat your oven to 400 and place tenderloin in a shallow roasting pan. Cover it with foil and bake for 25 minutes. Remove from pan and place on a cutting board to let it rest.

Meanwhile, toast or grill snowflake rolls for the buns. Spread them with cranberry sauce and then top with sliced pork loin. You can add pickled onions as well, or try some with salsa verde. Toasted, yummy, flavorful sliders. So simple and tasty!

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com.

Ready Set It's Thanksgiving! The Thanksgiving Babbleboxx is amazing! Read all about it and  our five entertaining tips for the holiday. #ad #ThanksgivingBBxx

Ready.. Set.. It’s Thanksgiving week!

Ah, how this holiday makes me happy. Also, HOW are we already more than halfway through November? My favorite Babbleboxx assistant/fan is joining us again, as always, and with her best friend this time. Time for the unboxing!

How cute are they? They had just run a fall 5K before the unboxing and were in good spirits. Now let’s talk about the box in better detail. First, we have a Petlanthropy Donation Gift Card. How novel is that? I really think that’s the perfect holiday gift for the animal lover in your life. These gift cards bring needed care, livesaving and smiles to beautiful, local, homeless cats, kittens, puppies and dogs in need. With one of these gift cards, you can find animal shelters and projects you care about on www.petlanthropy.org and apply the value of the gift card to any local animal shelter project or donation page.

I chose Dakin Humane Society’s donation page for my gift card, because they’re local heroes. That’s where we got our cat, Juniper, as a tiny kitten. We love it there! Where would you donate? Check out www.petlanthropy.org for more.

Next we have Solid Gold! I got Superfoods Chewy Dog Treats with Turkey, Sweet Potato and Cinnamon, and Tropical Blendz Cat Food With Turkey and Coconut Oil. Pretty convenient because today is Athena’s birthday and she gets super awesome treats! Don’t forget your pets for Thanksgiving with Solid Gold’s new line of dog and cat recipes that incorporate ingredients from your favorite holiday feasts into holistic foods. Your pets will love it! Superfoods Chewy Dog Treats combine turkey, sweet potatoes and cinnamon for a texture, aroma and taste that are a nutrient-dense reward for dogs of all sizes.

As for the cats, Tropical Blendz grain and gluten free wet cat food is crafted with a balanced combo of wholesome turkey and coconut oil. It’s served in a paté form that can be served as a balanced meal, an accompaniment to dry food, or as a tasty treat! Solid Gold has a variety of wet foods and treats that are great holiday stocking stuffers for your pets! If you’re looking for grain free dog treats or grain free cat food, check out this discount here. Athena LOVED her birthday treat.

You can find out more about natural dog treats here, as well as natural cat food here.

Next we have Sipp Sparkling Organic Drink!

Yum. It’s available in six flavors. I got mine in Blackberry, Mint & Lime and it was so flavorful, I drank it alone with my dinner last night. I can see using it and other flavors in cocktails, mocktails and other drinks. Just plain chilled is delicious too! They’re perfect to serve with Thanksgiving dinner! Sipp Organics blend fruits, herbs and agave into a lightly sweetened sparkling beverage. Are you making cocktails this holiday? They will surely have a lot of flavor with these organic drinks!

Find out more here.

Speaking of cocktails, we have an awesome book! Clean Cocktails for the Modern Mixologist by Tara Roscioli and Beth Ritter Nydick from Blue Barn Kitchen Publishing. Holistic health coaches Beth Ritter Nydick and Tara Roscioli bring a clean-living mindset to craft mixology. Pretty cool! Their wonderful recipes use low-calorie spirits, fresh juices, anti-inflammatory spices, and clean sweeteners like honey and maple syrup. Also, many of their recipes offer pitcher-sized variations that are perfect for holiday entertaining – and they feature innovative mixers like kombucha and iced tea. The Clean and Serene Mocktail has my heart! Find your perfect Thanksgiving cocktails and clean cocktails by buying the book here.

Last, we have the Edible Arrangements Salted Caramel Harvest Bouquet™ with Orange Swizzle Berries! I think Edible Arrangements® is the perfect addition to a Thanksgiving celebration, especially if you want to hear your guests gasp. Not only is this product delicious and convenient, you can order last minute options all the way up to 11/22 (the day before Thanksgiving)! My bouquet included salted caramel apple wedges and chocolate dipped strawberries with festive orange Swizzle®. It also had playful pineapple leaves, a chocolate covered pineapple “apple”, additional grapes, strawberries, and cantaloupe, and a keepsake pumpkin container that can be used again. Perfect gift, centerpiece, dessert, etc.
