Copy of code_ turkey

Hey friends and foodies!

We hope you had a FANG-tastic Halloween and are looking forward to all the holidays coming up that will bring your family and friends together around the table to celebrate and enjoy each other’s company.

We are already in full Thanksgiving mode here at FamousFoods and this week we wanted to highlight one of our favorite and most versatile items: Heritage Mik Lunch Crackers. Not only are they perfect for your breakfast or mid-day snack, Milk Crackers are used in one of our favorite stuffing recipes.

Here is our tried-and-true stuffing recipe using Milk Crackers:

Sausage-Stuffing-1024x686

Ingredients:
1.5 (16 ounce) boxes of Heritage Mill’s Milk Crackers
1 pound pork sausage
1 large onion, finely chopped
5 stalks celery, finely chopped
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
3 eggs, beaten
3 cups hot milk
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
In a food processor, grind the milk crackers into crumbs. Place in a large bowl.
Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown.
Drain, reserving liquid, and mix into the bowl with cracker crumbs.  In a medium saucepan over medium heat, slowly cook and stir the onion and celery in 3 tablespoons of the reserved sausage liquid until soft. Mix the onion and celery into the cracker crumb and sausage mixture. Mix in the poultry seasoning, salt, pepper, eggs, and milk. Chill in the refrigerator approximately 1 hour before stuffing the turkey.

You can find a printable version here.

For more Thanksgiving ideas, check out our blog from last week.

This week, we have two chances to save. You can use code GOBBLE for $5 orders of $30 or more and code STUFFING for $10 orders of $50 or more.

The taste of wind, weather, and clear cold water; it’s not a flavor that needs improving.  They create their New England Clam Chowder in small batches, like people on the Maine coast have been doing for generations – loaded with juicy clams and simple, all-natural ingredients. It’s as close to fresh off the docks of Maine as you can get without being here.

In New England, you are not going to do better than B&M Original Baked Beans. Purposely slow cooked to retain more flavor, B&M Original Baked Beans are cooked with sweet brown sugar, molasses, and tender pork. Here in Boston, we call that “wicked awesome”.

Generations of New Englanders have kept this as the main ingredient in their own holiday pies. There’s only one ingredient to this deliciousness and that’s prepared pumpkin! There is no need to worry about added calories or salt content since One-Pie only uses pure pumpkin.

You can also use this in pumpkin cookies, muffins, and cupcakes.
