Sweeten the Holidays with Mrs. Butterworths: Review and Giveaway

Weekend breakfasts are a tradition that my father started.  Every weekend, my mom,  brothers, and I would look forward to my Dad in the kitchen, cooking up biscuits, bacon, eggs, grits, you name it.  One of our favorites was when he would make his Banana Pancakes, made famous in the family first by my Grandpa.   No matter the breakfast, one thing was constant:  Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup.

Mrs. Butterworth’s iconic bottle is getting a Holiday makeover.  Now, for a limited time, you can choose from one of three holiday designs to put some cheer into your holiday breakfast table.  The syrup is the same: thick, rich, and as delicious as you remember.  Did you know Mrs. Butterworth’s has been around since 1961?  For today’s diets, Mrs. Butterworth’s comes in original, lite, and sugar free varieties, all of which deliver the same buttery taste you remember.    Check out Mrs. Butterworth online for fun games and contests for the kids as well!

Incredible recipes from Mrs. Butterworth’s! Giveaway

My husband and I both work full time outside the home, so I will admit that breakfast needs to be fast and easy.  Yogurt, granola bars, raisins, toast or orange juice is generally in the rotation.  But, on weekend, we like to break the boredom by cooking up something fun.

Celebrity Chef Kevin Roberts (aka The Food Dude and host of the new show on TLC, BBQ Pitmasters) created several recipes that are fun AND easy.  I thought I would share my favorite with you:

Hawaiian Style French Toast

INGREDIENTS:

1 tablespoon, Butter

2 EGGS, beaten

1 teaspoon, Cinnamon

4-8, Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, cut in half

1/2 cup, Mrs. Butterworth’s Sugar Free Syrup, warm

THE STEPS:

1: Heat butter in a large pan over medium-high heat.

2: In a large bowl mix eggs and cinnamon.

3: Dunk rolls into mixture and coat thoroughly.

4: Cook bread until golden brown on both sides about 3-5 minutes each side.

5: Warm your syrup in the microwave and pour over toast.

While we weren’t quite as adventurous at breakfast this morning, we decided to try the traditional pancake (which we rarely have).  Admittedly, I do not usually buy Mrs. Butterworth’s but I am not married to the brand I currently buy.  A little about Mrs. Butterworth’s:

Mrs. Butterworth’s® distinctive shaped bottle has been making kids smile for over 40 years. Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup can be found in Original flavor, Sugar Free or Lite—all of which deliver that distinct thick, rich and buttery taste. In addition to syrup, Mrs. Butterworth’s also offers Complete Pancake and Waffle Mix, available in Buttermilk and Home-style flavors.

We opened up the syrup this morning and my kids were immediately enamored with the bottle (who can resist Mrs. Butterworth, right?).  I was impressed with the consistency of the syrup (definitely thicker than my current brand).  We tried the “lite” syrup and I could not tell that it was lite at all.  Very yummy and the perfect topping to our warm pancake breakfast.
