6 easy dinner ideas for busy holiday-season weeknights
Wednesday, Dec. 8, 2021
Our perfectly frozen appetizers are packed with mouth-watering flavours, and they’re beyond flexible. Whipping up these tasty hacks whenever you need a fast, festive meal may be the best idea you’ve had yet.
You can skip the prep and cleanup with time-saving starters that also make festive mains. Italian Style Beef Meatballs go from beloved app to easy main when you add pasta and tomato sauce, or tuck them into sub rolls. Or simply serve them skewered with a delicious dipping sauce alongside for your own personal celebration.
Chicken Wings are perfect for low-key dinners. And they give you a chance to indulge in all your favourite dip cravings: Pour a few tablespoons of a variety of dips into different bowls — don’t be afraid to experiment! — to make wing night even more fun. Remember your veggies by serving some celery and carrot sticks on the side.
As a great pre-outing snack, nibble on some warm, gooey Mozzarella Sticks paired with our zesty Mozza Marinara Dip. Or heat things up by matching them up with our Thai Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce.
Our all-in Skillet Kits are basically made for the busy holiday season (and hectic weeknights). They’re perfectly prepped and portioned, and ready in less than 20 minutes. From Beef Stroganoff to Chicken Korma, there’s a wonderful world of flavour to explore, and you can accept loads of compliments while investing minimal (but valuable) stirring time at the stove.
Chilies and stews are also pure comfort on a frigid day. Whether you’re digging into Classic Beef Stew, made with braised beef and roasted red potatoes in a rich homestyle gravy, or our famous Classic Chicken Stew, there’s nothing like curling up with a bowlful by the fire.
If you’re up for a taste of adventure, try hacking some of our faves. You can smother Original Breaded Chicken Breasts in zesty Mozza Marinara Dip and melted cheese for a simple-but-decadent chicken Parm. Or easily shred Apple Butter Pork Tenderloin to make quick-as-a-flash pulled pork sandwiches — with extra Apple Butter BBQ Sauce and squishy buns, of course. And our Gourmet Stuffed Potatoes (gluten-free!), Bean & Carrot Medley and Homestyle Mashed Potatoes are always ready to round out a homey meal.
Cheers to getting things done and enjoying the ride!
