Trendy Holiday Meals with Schwan's Home Service

I am a bit competitive when it comes to holiday entertaining. I try to find the trendiest recipes and serve meals that my guests will rave about. It's nice when friends tell me that they tried to recreate meals or desserts that I made for them.  I never want to be caught off guard. My freezer is always stocked with essentials so that I am able to quickly prepare trendy meals and desserts for guests. In particular, let me share a few trendy items from Schwan's Home Service that can be kept in your freezer and pulled out for quick and easy holiday entertaining! Thanks to a freezer full of Schwan's trendy foods, I am always able to put together a trendy meal on the spot.

We are fans of Schwan's because they have the best chefs that come up with fantastic items that can liven up mealtime. For instance, here is a trendy Schwan's meal  that we recently enjoyed. The meal includes:


This meal was easy to prepare as the chefs at Schwan's had already figured out the perfect combinations of ingredients. All that we had to do was defrost and/or heat up each item. For instance, the Sliced Ham was already trimmed, glazed, cooked, and sliced. We simply heated slices in a cast iron skillet and then served with side items.
This ham was so good that we looked forward to leftovers the next day. Here is a ham and brie sandwich that we made with leftovers! (Don't you love the feeling of craving really good leftovers?!)

The Petite Brussels Sprouts were already seasoned with virgin olive oil, sea salt, and cracked black pepper. The seasoning was so amazing that even my 3 year old couldn't get enough of these trendy little brussels sprouts!  They were easy to prepare as we simply heated them in a pan.  (These are a limited edition, so you will want to stock up once you taste them!)
The Roasted Sweet Potatoes were my personal favorite in this meal. These hearty sweet potato chunks are buttery-sweet and the touch of sugar really adds a special touch.  We prepared these  a couple of different ways.  We baked some on a cookie sheet in the oven and then we pan fried some in a skillet.  Both ways were fantastic! Baking them on a cookie sheet was nice when I happened to already have the oven on and had a little more time to wait.
 
On the other hand, my husband was craving these the following day and wanted them quickly, so I poured the remainder of the bag into a cast iron skillet to prepare them faster!  (These really are crave-worthy!)
Finally, the Red Velvet & Cheesecake is the ultimate dessert!  This is one of Schwan's best sellers and is a seasonal offering. The chefs at Schwan's perfected this decadent dessert with rich layers that include red velvet cake that is made from scratch and embedded with rich chocolate chips, light and fluffy white chocolate cheesecake that is incredibly creamy, and then frosting that made with real cream cheese. Each of these layers could be a dessert on their own, but the combination is amazing! Of course, the chefs at Schwan's added an extra touch by hand decorating this cake with white and dark chocolate shavings.
This cake is sure to please guests throughout the holiday season. I love that it's easy to freeze and that you can defrost the entire cake or pull out individual slices.  Each piece is carefully separated by wax paper so that it is easy to pull out individual slices as needed.
 
This is just one of the many holiday meals that you can order from Schwan's. They have many one-of-a-kind hors d’oeuvres, sides, main courses, and desserts that are sure to stand out to your guests this holiday season!   Check out their great holiday options!

Do you see anything on the Schwan's website that looks perfect for the upcoming holidays?
