Celebrate the Holidays with Augason Farms

The holiday season is upon us again which also means gift giving and food will be in the spotlight all month long. While the holidays are practically synonymous with gift giving, they just wouldn’t be the same without all the scrumptious food that goes along with it! This year, Augason Farms is helping make your gift giving, baking, and food prep a bit easier with some exciting in-store savings.

Save on Emergency Pails: Do you ever struggle finding a gift for that person who seems to have everything already? Or maybe you’re the type that prefers to give gifts that are actually useful. Either way, our Augason Farms Emergency Pails make fantastic gift ideas for the holidays and this month you can save up to $10 on them. After all, what better gift can you give than peace of mind?

Save on Bacon: Throughout December, when you buy any two Augason Farms egg items, you’ll also get $2 off a package of Western Family bacon. If you’ll be hosting family or friends during the holidays, this is a great way to stock up on breakfast essentials. But our egg items aren’t just for breakfast. You can use them in your holiday baking, too!

Potato Shreds Casserole

  • 5 cups water
  • 2 cups Augason Farms Dehydrated Potato Shreds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons Augason Farms Dehydrated Chopped Onions
  • 1/4 cup Augason Farms Dehydrated Diced Red & Green Bell Peppers
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup Augason Farms Whole Eggs
  • ¼ cup Bacon bits cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • Ketchup

In a 2-quart saucepan, add 4 cups water, potato shreds, salt, onions, and peppers. Let simmer 10-15 minutes (until onions are rehydrated). Drain well. In frying pan, melt butter, and then add drained potato shreds mixture. Cook until browned and crisp (about 15 minutes). While potato shreds are cooking, mix egg powder with 1 cup water. Blend until smooth, add bacon bits. Pour over browned potatoes and cook until egg mixture is set. Melt cheese over mixture and serve with ketchup.

Whether you’re baking for big family gatherings or making sweets and baked goods to take to friends and neighbors, you’ll be spending a lot of time in the kitchen.
