M&M Meat Shops, Your Holiday Helper

MMM Meat Shops review giveaway holiday gift guideIf you recall from my 2010 Holiday Gift Guide feature on M&M Meat Shops, it’s tradition for us to host our annual Christmas Eve Appetizer Party. For us, it’s a fun time to relax, enjoy the company of loved ones and sample really good eats {with as little chaos as possible}! A few of the appetizers served are home made, yet most are bought from M&M Meat Shops {greatest selection ever!}. It’s always nice to get that little break right between the craze of prepping for the holidays and the grand feast on Christmas Day. M&M Meat Shops is like my own little holiday helper each year!

Since our Christmas Eve centers around appetizers and then desserts, I’ll share a few of the new {and yummy} items found at M&M Meat Shops.

{ Appetizers } 

  1. MM Meat Shops Appetizers Holiday gift guideAdd a touch of elegance with new M&M Meat Shops Fig & Brie Phyllo Cups. These ready-to-bake phyllo cups are filled with a creamy brie and cream cheese filling and topped with a gourmet fig jam. An exquisite, upscale appetizer, just heat and serve these mouth-watering treats at your next cocktail party and enjoy the compliments from your guests!
  2. M&M Meat Shops’ new Mini Chicken Pub Pies capture the delicious flavours of a traditional chicken pot pie, in just one bite! These tender, flaky, short-crust pastry cups are filled with a creamy, all-white chicken and vegetable filling and topped with perfectly toasted, crunchy bread crumbs.
  3. Kids of all ages will love the new M&M Meat Shops Pizza Tarts. These fully-cooked, bite- sized pasty cups are filled with pizza sauce, sliced pepperoni and mozzarella cheese – perfect for parties and snacks!
  4. M&M Meat Shops’ Oriental Party Pak is a time-tested party favourite {we have served it each year!}. This collection of heat and serve finger foods includes mini Potstickers, mini Vegetable Spring Rolls, bite-size pieces of Breaded Chicken Breast, and bite-size pieces of Breaded, Boneless Pork Loin.

**Note: We adore the Bacon Wrapped Scallops, you’ll have to try this if you have the chance!

{ Desserts }

  1. desserts MM meat shops holidaysComplete your dessert platter with delectable two-bite Mini Éclairs, filled with a heavenly blend of sweet whipped cream and dairy custard topped with real bittersweet chocolate and Mini Cream Puffs, made with rich pastry dough filled with sweet vanilla-flavoured whipping cream that melts in your mouth. No baking necessary! Just thaw, serve and enjoy the sweet company of your guests.
  2. New M&M Meat Shops Lemonicious Lemon Squares feature a tangy lemon filling, sandwiched between a real, all-butter shortbread bottom crust and a white and yellow chocolate ganache topping. Best served cold, this refined dessert is sure to be a hit!
  3. For fruit fans, top your favourite M&M Meat Shops ice cream, custard or cheesecake with new M&M Meat Shops Freestone Peach Slices, Dark Sweet Cherries or Ida Red Apple Slices. Bake these pre-sliced, ready-to-eat fruits into your favourite pie or crumble recipe and shave precious kitchen prep-time from your day, so that you can spend more time with those who matter most.
  4. TOO TALL® White Chocolate Raspberry Cake {My fave!}: This magnificent cake of white chocolate whipped cream icing, soft shortcake, a sweetly tart raspberry filling, and red and white chocolatey drizzles reaches its height of flavour when served slightly chilled.

For a gifting idea or a stocking stuffer, treat someone to the yummy convenience of a M&M Meat Shops Gift Card. And, if you are attending or hosting a Holiday Party this year, don’t forget to check out what they have to offer. The holidays are busy enough, get yourself a holiday helper! 😉
