Holiday Gift Ideas-Petit Jean Meats Giveaway

Can you believe it is already December the 10th?  If you are like me, you have more than a few a few gifts left to purchase and are running out of time.  Gift-giving can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be.  Let me share with you one Holiday gift idea that may fit the bill for those hard-to-buy-for, those who have everything, or family and friends who live out-of-state.  Petit Jean Meats has a variety of gift boxes to suit anyone’s taste!

Whether you live in Arkansas and are buying for someone around the state or need a gift item shipped out-of-state, Petit Jean Meats offers the perfect taste of Arkansas!  We just received this Deluxe Gift Box which contains a 3.5 lb smoked ham, Arkansas-style smoked sausage, Hickory Smoked Bacon, and Summer Sausage.  Petit Jean’s gift boxes arrive right at your doorstep in a cooler box ready to freeze or eat.  Simple!

I am not being paid to say this…Petit Jean bacon is hands-down the very best bacon we have ever eaten!  Long before I agreed to blog for Petit Jean Meats, we were enjoying their products, and I love supporting an Arkansas-based, family-owned company.

We are saving our goodies to use in recipes around Christmastime.  Here are a few that I have in mind:

Hot Bacon Swiss Dip

 Easy Bacon Quiche

 Ham Tettrazini using leftover ham

Hoppin’John after the Holidays!

    My favorite Christmas eve meal is a big mess of tamales around the table after church. On Christmas morning, I usually have a breakfast casserole ready to go after opening presents. All the food in your pictures looks delicious. Merry Christmas.

  4. Kristy Morris says:

    Hey Amanda! Love your blog! And I love petit jean meats! As for a favorite holiday food, I love the shoepeg corn casserole and a sweet potato casserole (with brown sugar and pecans as the topping). Yummy! Can’t wait to eat these in a couple of weeks at my mom’s house.

    • Kristy,
      My favorite is Shoepeg Corn Casserole, too! Plus dressing, of course:) The only time of the year I eat both. Hope you are well. Love, AB

  5. OK, I have to enter this just because we had to cart Petit Jean bacon all the way to Colorado Springs back in September for my brother-in-law, who is stationed there at Fort Carson. He’ll be the recipient of the gift if I win.

    My favorite holiday food is my mom’s super-cheesey scalloped potatoes. She can bring me an entire casserole dish of them, and I’ll eat every bit myself.

    Thanks! Jamie Pennington

  26. Mmmm, Petit Jean Pepper-Cured Bacon for some rockin’ BLTs (or BL’s in my case because I hate “T” lol) My favorite holiday thing-to-be-consumed is Pennsylvania Dutch Egg Nog — you can only get it from October or November until the stores run out. It is very strong (a little goes a looooong way) but it’s so good! (it’s alcoholic, so it is definitely an Adults Only beverage!). As for food, my favorite holiday food is…man…I love those chocolate covered/white chocolate covered pretzels because I don’t eat them any other time of year. 🙂

  27. I stalk you…I mean, I like you on Facebook. 🙂

  28. And I liked Petit Jean Meats on FB

  29. And, last but not least, I shared it on FB.

  30. After all the “hoop-la” is over and everyone is playing or watching or napping…. I like a little chopped up ham on a leftover roll with a big slather of mayonnaise.

  31. I love pecan pie! You have a great blog. 🙂

  32. Lori Harris says:

    My nana’s dressing and apple pie!

  33. Cashew Brittle in the microwave. My husbands favorite and a no-fail recipe if you don’t double the amount of corn syrup like I did last night!

  34. I love Squash Dressing ! Would love to winthis giveaway!

  35. I am not a dessert or sweets person, but when Christmas comes around I am the first one at the cookie tray!

  36. I don’t think I can pick just one food! I love ham, pumpkin pie, chocolate chip cookies and so much more! 🙂

    We sent a box to friends in the DC area for whom we cooked PJ Peppered Bacon during a winter camping trip earlier this year so they could enjoy it again and one to our parents. Who doesn’t love getting meat delivered to the door?

  42. My favorite Holiday food is the glazed ham my mom makes, plus we make ham salad for lunches the next few days – tastey!!

    My favorite holiday treat is our family’s famous APPLE DUMPLINGS! These are phenomenal, over the top, eat a whole one and you may die from indulgence overload!! Yep, they are that good! I often take orders and make them to sell during the holidays. Always a big hit at social gatherings too!

  46. I’m all about the repeat of Thanksgiving only with a ham. Dressing, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, …I skip desserts just to go back for thirds on Christmas dinner.
    I like you on FB.

  47. Beth Stockinger says:

    My favorite food at the holidays is my mother-in-law’s (Gladys – known as Big G) stuffing. It’s totally different than most people have ever had. It’s awesome but don’t ask how much butter is in it!
