When I first visited the H.B.H. locations this past Spring, I was beyond surprised with their in depth menu variety they had available for everyday eating. I had an extensive menu to choose from.which included a variety of poultry, pork, seafood, and beef as well as sides, appetizers, desserts, and condiments. They are a perfect place for large scale entertaining, daily family meals, catered professional lunches, and a quick bite to eat for any individual. Each time I arrive, I am overwhelmed and have no idea what to get since I want it all.
This time around the same gentleman that helped me a ton last time was working again but unfortunately in the back prepping a little more. Unfortunately, the staff member who helped me this time wasn't quite as enthusiastic but at least I knew what I had in mind for the family holiday meal. As I mentioned last time, I've always felt the pricing at Honey Baked Ham was too high, when that honestly is NOT the case.
For my Thanksgiving visit, I purchased a half spiral boneless ham, a sliced smoked turkey breast, and two 1 lb. packs of stacked/sliced bacon, and two sides of coleslaw for a total of $95. Without even factoring in the quality, when you think about the amount of meat this is with the number of people I can feed, plus the fact that I don't have to spend hours preparing Thanksgiving Dinner, you're really looking at a cheap gourmet meal. I am thinking probably less than $5 per person.
I was also excited to find out that "over 40 years ago, Harry J. Hoenselaar began a special tradition when he opened his first The HoneyBaked Ham Company store in Michigan. He'd select the finest quality bone-in ham. Cure it in his secret marinade, and then for tenderness, he'd smoke the ham for hours over a unique blend of hardwood chips. He even found a way to slice the ham into perfectly even slices. He invented and patented a unique machine that slices a ham in a single, continuous spiral. The rest is history." Yeah for Michigan local brands!!
I love that all I need to do is prepare the sides (that I did not purchase from H.B.H.), get myself and the kids dressed, and I am good to go for Thanksgiving Dinner this year. This is especially important to me since this year will be our first hosting dinner in our new home. As if I won't be stressed enough about all the cleaning and everything being perfect for each of my families first visit here, now I will have less to worry about in preparation for everyone's arrival. I could even have my husband help with the cooking without fear of a complete disaster, LOL.
