This week in Longaberger

Entertainment...

 
Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away, and starting on December 1, the holiday parties will start. These are some recipes and ideas I have gathered to use with the food products Longaberger currently in the Wish list catalog.

 
Seasoning Blends

 
  • For appetizers, use the seasoning blends: combine 5 Tbsp. Southwest, Parmesan Garlic or jalapeno and Cilantro Seasoning Blend with 1cup Sour Cream and 1 cup Mayonnaise. (Reduced fat Sour Cream and Mayonnaise may be substituted). Chill for 4 hours before serving. Place favorite chips with the dips.
  • Blend 2 tsps. of the seasoning blends to cream cheese to use as a flavored spread on the beer bread, bagels, or biscuits. Butter can be substituted in place of the cream cheese as flavoring to cooked meats and as a spread.
  • Use the seasoning blends as rub on chicken, meats, and seafood.
  • Sprinkle over vegetables just before roasting
  • The seasoning blends can be used to flavor mash potatoes, pasta, or any place where spices would be used.

 Tropical Key Lime mix

 

 Key Lime Tarts: Bake individual mini pastry tarts

 
You'll need one package of Tropical Key Lime Mix

 
8oz cream cheese

 
1/2 stick (1/4 cup) softened butter or margarine*

 
Prepare packet 1 of Key Lime Pie l Mix as directed. Fill mini pastries with cheese mixture. Sprinkle top with contents of packet 2. Garnish with a thin twist of lime. Wonderful! * Low Fat Alternative: Simply omit butter and use no-fat cream cheese! Some flavors may not set up in a ball, but still taste great and may be used as a spread!

 

Note: This can be turned into a regular 9” pie and can be substituted with the White Chocolate Amaretto Mix.

 

 

Soups

 

Longaberger has two soups which can also be a wonderful addition to a holiday meal. This last recipe, which comes directly from the catalog, and it uses the White Cheddar Potato soup Mix

 

 

½ packet White Cheddar Potato Soup Mix

3 cups water

4 medium potatoes, thinly sliced

1 cup diced ham

½ cup chopped onion

1 cup grated cheddar cheese

 
Preheat oven at 350°F. Place sliced potatoes in a Woven Traditions® Medium Oval Casserole or 9x13” baking dish. Combine soup mix with water, onion and ham and pour over the potatoes. Top with grated cheese, cover with lid or foil and bake 1 hour. Remove cover and bake for 30-45 minutes longer until potatoes are tender.
