‘Tis the Season

Oh, Christmas!

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Jack Frost nipping at your nose. Yuletide carols being sung by a choir. And folks…clamoring for some traditional Christmas ham?

So it doesn’t rhyme. But it’s true! Christmas ham is an American tradition. Sure, every region does things a little differently, but a staple of an American Christmas – like the trees and the presents – is a sweet, glazed, succulent ham.

Mmm. Our mouth is starting to water just thinking about it! And everyone knows that the best hams, while recipes might vary from family to family, they all have one thing in common: pineapple.

Last Minute Thanksgiving Dish

As you’re reading this, today, Monday, November 23, I can bet that you are either one of two people:

“Person A”: You have EVERYTHING set for Thanksgiving. Whether you’re hosting the entire affair or you’re a generous family member bringing a dish, you’ve got it covered. Ingredients were bought a few days ago and you can’t wait to get in the kitchen and get to work. Or…

“Person B”: You came here looking for a miracle, because you haven’t even given a thought to what you’re supposed to bring to your mother’s house come Thursday.

If you’re Person A , we’re sure you whipped up something both delicious and ambitious like a….Pineapple Casserole for example.

If you’re Person B, don’t worry. We’ve got something just for you!

Baked in AZ swears this is the best cheese ball they’ve ever had. (Tasty? Check!) And it seems pretty easy to make. (A quick run to the store and 30 minutes at home? Check!) Plus, it’s a real tried and true homemade recipe that features PINEAPPLES. (Mom will love it and so do we. Double Check!).

Here’s what you’ll need:

PINEAPPLE & PECAN CHEESE BALL
INGREDIENTS
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained

  • 2 Tablespoons green onions, chopped
  • ⅓ cup chopped pecans

Bite-Sized, Savory Sliders

The summer cook-out – everyone’s got one to go to. Whether it’s thrown by the neighbors down the block, your kids’ teammates or a pair of friends who just got a new grill, we’re sure there’s at least one of these you have to attend this summer.

And as the polite guest that you are, you’ll probably “bring something” to add to the traditional line-up of good eats like beefy hamburgers and juicy drumsticks by choosing from one of three categories: dips, casseroles or salads (that last one being used very loosely).

Sure, they’re all good choices, but not so fast! There is actually a happy medium between “grilled” and “prepared” that can have everyone raving. This week’s recipe does just the trick!

The Teriyaki Pineapple Sliders recipe, courtesy of House of Yumm, not only has just a few simple steps, but also does an incredible job at pleasing both the meat-eater and the fresh fruit fanatic with both savory, slow-cooked seasoning and Perfect Pineapple® piquancy. We couldn’t ask for a better combo!

TERIYAKI PINEAPPLE SLIDERS

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 pounds beef chuck roast, or pork shoulder roast
  • Perfect Pineapple, about 6 to 8 round slices
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 3/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1/2 large onion chopped
  • Mixed salad toppings, your choice

Check out House of Yumm’s recipe page here for directions and more details.

Enjoy,

Dr. Lloyd
