Bryan Foods Review, and a Giveaway!

Giveaway Closed--stay tuned for the winners!

I was contacted recently and asked if I'd like to sample some of the products available from Bryan Foods, and offer a giveaway for my readers. (That's YOU!) They make a variety of meat products, from smoked sausage and breakfast sausage to cocktail wieners, hot dogs, corn dogs, hams, and lunch meats. You can see more about their products at their website, I love their slogan, "Bryan Foods, the Flavor of the South"!

Being a southern gal, myself, I'm already familiar with some of their products, and I know they're good, so I jumped at the chance.

I received a package with an insulated bag and ice packs with two from their line-up, smoked sausage and beef cocktail wieners, along with this cute apron.

Here's a better shot of the apron, it's an over-the-head apron with big pockets along the bottom (you can click the picture to see it up close, then hit your back arrow to return to the post) and the neck area is adjustable, too. Ladies, this would be a good apron for us, or even a good bbq apron for our honeys.

Being the frugal gal that I am, I wanted to try everything in as many different ways as I could. I ended up making three different cocktail sausage recipes, and two with the smoked sausage.

Meanwhile, Bryan Foods is going to furnish prize packages for TWO of my lucky readers identical to the one I received!

All you have to do to enter is leave your name and email address in my giveaway form--the information will go straight into a spreadsheet that's for my eyes only, and will not be used for any purpose other than this giveaway. The winners will be chosen at random, and notified by email. Once you receive your notification, you'll need to reply with your name and address, which will be passed to a Bryan Foods representative for the sole purpose of shipping you your prize package.

Would you like to have more than one chance to win?
  1. For entry number one, just leave your name, email address, and a comment telling me which recipe you'd like to try, or what you think you might like to make with your prize package goodies.
  2. For an additional entry, follow, or subscribe either by email or in a reader; then leave an additional entry telling me so in the comment section. If you already follow or subscribe, just tell me that in the 2nd entry comment.
  3. Tweet about or mention this giveaway on your blog for a third entry--just be sure to leave a comment (on the form) telling me so.

This giveaway will be open until 6:00 pm Friday, December 11th. I've decided to extend this until Sunday night, December 13th, at 6:00 pm. Looking around the "blogosphere", most giveaways seem to run Mon-Sun, so I'm going to go with the flow on that.

Are you ready?
