Game Day Party Planning with HoneyBaked Ham & $25 HoneyBaked Ham Gift Certificate Giveaway


By on 1/20/2014 12:36:00 PM

This post is brought to you by HoneyBaked Ham as part of their #HoneyBakedGameDay campaign.  All opinions and experiences are our own.

It's almost time for the Super Bowl--and, if you are like many of us, hosting an annual Super Bowl party or gathering is rapidly moving its way up your to-do list.  It's time to plan, shop, prepare and serve a buffet of food!  Are you ready?  We usually find a tip or two to share around Super Bowl time every year.  Last year, we shared a few of our favorite dip recipes that always find their way onto our party menu.  This year--we had the opportunity to give HoneyBakedforYou, the catering service offered by The Honeybaked Ham Co., a try--and we even have a $25 gift certificate to share with one of our readers!  You could use some help with your Super Bowl party, right?

Have you tried HoneyBakedForYou.com?  Many of us have probably ordered (or have been served) a honeybaked ham for Easter or Christmas.  I didn't know that the company also offers a quick and easy catering and party planning menu too!  I have used catering services from local restaurants for parts of my party menu in the past--so how did HoneyBakedForYou stand up to the test for our latest game day gathering?

Ordering at HoneyBakedForYou.com is almost too easy.  While you can certainly phone into the HoneyBaked Ham store and place your catering order with a live person--I found the online ordering  extremely user friendly.  All of the serving sizes are listed on the various trays and side dishes--and they were really true to those estimates.  I was able to read through all of the product descriptions and easily placed my order for a small party of 10 in no time online. 

The HoneyBaked Ham pick up process was quick and easy.  I am something of a worrier--especially when I'm hosting a party!  My order was ready on time--and it even included serving utensils, plates, cutlery, and napkins for 10 (a little detail that I completely forgot to note when I placed my order).  The trays for my order were packed into a sturdy box with handles for carrying and a large bag held the side dish containers.

How was the food from HoneyBakedforYou?  Let me show you--we ordered an assortment of items from the store for our gathering!

 The Super Sandwich (Ham)

We chose a medium sized Super Sandwich--and it was plenty for our party!  It was loaded with thick slices of HoneyBaked ham and cheese along with lettuce and tomato on even thicker slices of rustic pan bread.  The younger girls (and even the ladies) found it a little tough to take a lady-like bite of these "super-sized" sandwich slices!  These sandwiches are also available in roast beef or turkey too--and our girls have already put in a request for roast beef in the future.

Loaded Baked Potato Salad

The HoneyBaked Ham Loaded Baked Potato Salad was a huge hit with everyone--even those who aren't always fans of the dish.  I have a feeling I'll be ordering this more often for gatherings--it is a lot easier than making my homemade version!

Broccoli Bliss and Baked Beans


Both the Broccoli Bliss salad and the Baked Beans were well received.  One of the little ones who never eats baked beans actually ate these!

A Dessert Sampler Tray

 The dessert sampler was wonderful!  The sampler tray held four types of cheesecake, three types of cookies and thick slices of cinnamon coffee cake.  It was so nice to offer so many dessert options without having tons of diet-blowing leftovers after the party!

In all honesty--every item was a hit with our guests!  I would certainly place another catering order with HoneyBaked Ham.   Planning and ordering the menu was so easy--the food was a hit with the group--and I wasn't stuck in the kitchen while everyone else was enjoying the day.
