Did someone say BACON?

This time of the year we are all looking for creative and unique gift ideas for our family, friends and loved ones.  Do you hate shopping for the person who has everything?  Do you try to think of something unusual, that shows you really put some thought into the gift?  

Look what I have here! This is a Petit Jean Bacon & Ham Gift Box that will knock their socks off! As many of you know, Petit Jean is an Arkansas based company that offers many excellent products from bacon, to hams and sausages.   

And YOU could WIN one of these unique food baskets right here on my blog!  This particular package is specially branded with the Dallas Cowboys team logo.  If you want to see this, and other Dallas Cowboys branded products, you can click HERE.  This would make a perfect gift for the Dallas Cowboys fan in your life. And, if you aren't a fan? Doesn't matter! The delicious ham and bacon is reason enough to enter this giveaway.

This gift package includes:  (1) package of Sliced Smoked Ham
                                          (1) package of Sliced Peppered Ham
                                         (1) package of Hickory Smoked Bacon
                                          (1) package of Hickory Smoked Peppered Bacon

I have been thinking of what you might do with this gift box, and here's my list--
  • A teacher gift. Trust me, they get enough candles and apple trinkets to last a lifetime.
  • Great for a family member who doesn't live in Arkansas; introduce them to the goodness of Petit Jean Meats.
  • Makes an excellent hostess gift during your holiday travel.
  • Perfect for a holiday gift for your boss.
  • Or just keep it for YOURSELF!  
My family tried out this very same gift box around Thanksgiving. I was so thankful to have something besides leftover turkey to eat! We had ham sandwiches for lunch and bacon for breakfast for several days.  I personally love the peppered bacon, but the kids preferred the plain hickory smoked variety; the little ones couldn't handle the spicy flavor from the pepper.  

HOW TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY:  You must leave a comment on this post.  Tell me what food is a must-have at your holiday dinner table.  Also remember to leave me your name and email address so I can contact you if you win! Deadline to enter is 9:00am on Saturday, December 8th.  Winner will be chosen at random from all comments left on this post.

My opinions are my own and honest reflections of how I feel. I was given product for this giveaway, so that I could also give away the gift box on my blog.


  1. Baked potato casserole is our must-have dish for holidays. It is always topped with crumbled Petit Jean bacon, too! I love the Dallas Cowboys packaging on this give-away! Being from the Dallas area, this would make a great gift for family back home!

    1. Lana, I knew you'd like the Cowboys package too!

  2. I insist on corn casserole. Which would be great with bacon in it, come to think of it. :)

  3. We have to have ham! The kids devour it and wouldn't care if that was the only thing served! Besides ham, we also have to have a cheesy hashbrown casserole!

  4. I'm trying to figure out how we went all day playing catch up and didnt talk about bacon! I'm not the biggest fan of typical holiday foods. I love the year we go with mexican, italian or 50s diner foods! But, my uncle makes these peanut butter and ritz cracker sandwiches dipped in chocolate that he knows he better notshow up without...or my sis and I will fight.

  5. Well......I made a post on here yesterday, but I see it didn't "take", so here goes AGAIN.

    You know we have to have HAM for our family Christmas celebration! With that said, my personal favorite is anything made with bacon and adding cheese makes it that much better. I'm just sorry that I'm not there to help you eat some of that yummy Petit Jean ham and bacon. Don't burn your taste buds out on the ham, we'll be having it later this month. Can't wait to see all of you!

    Love to all...

  6. One of our favorite things are green bean bundles for Christmas dinner. Green beans wrapped in BACON - what more do you need to know?!

  7. It's all about the dessert for me! I demand a cherry or pumpkin pie for Christmas dinner. It doesn't seem like Christmas if there isn't a gorgeous pie!

  8. Green bean casserole & jellied cranberry sauce-yum

  9. I love the fried turkey my FIL prepares...Delicious! -Lara
    PS... Thanks for the box of boy clothes!

  10. We always have my red-hot apple pie. Its bright, festive, and super cinnamony! We've also planned to cook a ham this year too!

  11. HAM! My kids won't agree on much, but we all love ham!

  12. Tamales! Yes the most labor intensive meat pockets ever!
