Family Features

The holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year, but savvy hosts and hostesses have many tips and tricks they use to help ease the pressure in the kitchen and ensure they have more time with friends and family.

Versatile ingredients save time

Choosing ingredients that can be used in a wide range of dishes is a quick and easy way to shorten shopping lists and save time without sacrificing creativity or flavor.

You can save time and still make your favorite recipes party-ready by using King’s Hawaiian bread and rolls in a number of ways.

Unique holiday dishes

Hosts and hostesses have utilized the versatility of King’s Hawaiian brand products for more than 50 years, as it both complements their holiday meals and transforms appetizers, entrees and desserts into one-of-a-kind dishes.

For example, adding this delicious bread to a holiday breakfast casserole can enrich the flavors of savory sausage, eggs and cheeses with a hint of sweetness.

Spreads, stuffings, salads and more

King’s Hawaiian Round Bread pulls double duty as an elegant appetizer that also acts as a centerpiece.

By just cutting the top off and carving out the center, it becomes an edible container for your favorite dips and spreads.

To save even more time and money, cube the extra bread pieces and toast them for homemade croutons or breadcrumbs perfect for stuffings, salads and dressings.

From bread pudding to pies and even donuts, Kings Hawaiian products can be used in a wide range of desserts that are an easy and delicious addition to your holiday table this season.
