Now that John and I have our own home, with plenty of room to entertain, we love to invite friends and family over for dinner or a movie, or to sit outside by the fire. It's always so much fun to get together with your loved ones.
Sometimes, we make plans to have people over well in advance, giving us plenty of time to prepare, but more often than not, we just invite people over on a whim. If I don't have food to serve to my guests, I get frazzled, so I make sure to keep a stash of frozen foods on hand that are quick and easy to prepare, and are just perfect for entertaining guests!
Frozen foods are so great to keep on hand, because they are ready when you are. They fit every family's lifestyle without compromising taste or nutrition. They are made from real recipes and with real ingredients. Below are some of my favorite frozen foods for entertaining friends and family.
Everyone loves pizza, and Freschetta is one of the best frozen pizzas out there.
I love the flavor of the sauce, the soft and airy dough, with a perfectly crunchy crust, and the ooey gooey cheese. I buy one of these just about every week, and it's always a hit when guests come over.
Sometimes when we have guests over for a game night, we are not hungry enough for a whole pizza. It's times like that when Bagel Bites are great to have on hand. They are bite sized bagels topped with pizza toppings, and they are super tasty! I also love that awesome crunch factor when I bite into them.
I also like to serve up Delimex Rolled Tacos.
They bake up in the oven really fast, and there are a ton of them in a box. I can take out as many as I need to feed my guests and save the rest for another time. They are really delicious, and can be paired with sour cream or your favorite sauces for dipping.
On the occasions when we do have guests over for a complete meal, I always serve up Green Giant Boxed Vegetables as a side dish.
Take a look at this Broccoli with Cheese Sauce. It is so yummy, and the perfect side to your favorite meal.
Every now and then we will have guests over for coffee and breakfast in the morning. While I love to cook a grand breakfast every once in a while, I also like to actually spend time with my guests. So, I opt for Jimmy Dean Breakfast Sandwiches.
They are a quick and easy breakfast option, and hearty enough to fill my guests' bellies. My favorite are the Sausage, Egg & Cheese Croissants.
How do you feel about fresh vs frozen? Frozen is how fresh stays fresh. Freezing locks in the flavor and nutrients of the foods you love. Read Frozen. How Fresh Stays Fresh to learn the benefits of frozen foods.
