Give Yourself a Break during the Holidays with Hormel! Plus giveaway! #homegatherings

Disclosure: I received free product. Opinions are 100% my own. 


The holidays are always stressful. As I get older, I am getting more relaxed about putting out the perfect spread. I figured out that I can still offer my guests wonderful nibbles and food without all the work.

This Thanksgiving, I ordered an entire Turkey dinner from a local grocery store. It was amazing! No muss, no fuss and we ate really well. I also have learned that as long as you have good friends and good food, it doesn't mater if you slaved over it.

That's why I love the new Hormel Gatherings Party Trays! They are pre-made party trays ready with everything you need to feed your hungry guests. You buy them, open them and serve them! Easy Peasy!


Hormel Gathering Party Trays come with crackers, two types of cheese and two types of proteins. YUM! I chose the Honey ham and Turkey platter. It comes with cheddar and Colby jack cheese. The other platter includes hard salami and pepperoni with cheddar and Colby jack cheese. Both include cracker rounds.

I love these because not only are they easy to serve but are delicious. I find that these platters are really great for cocktail parties, game day parties or work parties. I always have a cheese plate at every party. Sometimes my cheese plates are super fancy but. most of the time, they are filled with foods that people love.


If you want your guests to be impressed create a cheese platter. It's easy. You need a few things. I always have crackers. I have semi-soft cheeses like the Colby jack and cheddar. I also love adding a spreadable cheese like goat cheese. I love having mustard and olives. I also add the meats. One thing I love having as well is honey or preserves. And fruit. I usually use grapes but they aren't in season so I decided on a apple.

This holiday season make it easy on you and grab these platter. You can serve them at home or take them to potlucks or a friend's house.


You can find Hormel Gatherings Party Trays at Walmart or click here to find out if there is a location close to you.
