Holiday Helpers from Hamilton Beach #GIVEAWAY #HBSocialKitchen

The holidays can be a time full of stress if you let them. Shopping, cooking, wrapping, and rushing from place to place in order to see everyone and get everything thing done can leave you little time to enjoy the smaller joys of the season. It’s the little things like the feeling of a freshly fallen flake being caught on the tongue, the crisp smell in the air as you walk in the cold, and all the wonderful food that is to be found that make this time of year so special though. I have been working hard on simplifying this year, even as I add more to my to do list. Hamilton Beach has been key in keeping me sane.

Getting through the average day is made so much easier with the addition of Hamilton Beach small appliances. From the coffee I enjoy each morning, to the blender and breakfast sandwich makers that allow my kids to make their own breakfasts, and onto the rice cooker and slow cooker that help prepare dinner for me, each step of my day is made a little bit less stressful. All of these products have stood the test of time, and pretty much everything my family has thrown in them.

This season I am adding a new small appliance to my entertaining arsenal – the Hamilton Beach Breakfast Wrap Maker. Not only will we be able to enjoy delicious breakfast wraps, but by getting a little creative we can use this handy small appliance when we are entertaining. With the Breakfast Wrap Maker and a little bit of creativity you can make delightful treats that everyone will enjoy.

For the breakfast crowd toss in a mixture of egg, cheese, red pepper pieces, chopped leeks and turkey in the top tray, and a tortilla in the lower one for the perfect breakfast wrap to fuel your day. If you are expecting guests use it to serve up delicious appetizers like pizza quesadillas. If you need recipes there are a number of fabulous ones in the book. I plan on using my Breakfast Wrap Maker in a DIY crêpe bar for my family to enjoy over the holiday season. All the fun, but none of the work for me. I count that as a holiday win!

Breakfast wrap-1

To make a DIY crêpe bar set out a variety of stuffings and toppings things like:

  • maple syrup
  • fresh fruit
  • grated cheese (sharp cheeses are great for savoury crepes)
  • chocolate spread
  • powdered sugar
  • crêpe batter (recipe is in the booklet that comes with the Breakfast Wrap Maker) in a clean ketchup bottle for easy and mess free dispensing.
  • And of course the Breakfast Wrap Maker.

Set up plates at one end and utensils and napkins at the other end and have your family and guests help themselves.

We have used the Breakfast Wrap Maker every day since it’s unpacking. It’s super easy to use and clean and would make the perfect gift for just about everyone on your list! Since I love you all so much you made my list and now have a chance to win your very own Breakfast Wrap Maker!

137 opinions on “Holiday Helpers from Hamilton Beach #GIVEAWAY #HBSocialKitchen”

  1. I learned that you should be using half the amount of water when the recipe is switched from the oven to the slow cooker. Unless it is rice pasta or quinoa

  2. I learned and found very interesting that a small slow cooker uses approximately the same power as one and a half 100 watt light bulbs

  3. I learnt that when using my recipes in a slow cooker I need to reduce the amount of liquid to about half the amount called for in my recipe.

  4. I learned that a small slow cooker uses about the same power as one and a half 100 watt light bulbs, so definitely an economical way to cook.

  5. I learned that slow cooking in a slow cooker is similar to cooking with a Dutch oven on a stove. Like on a stove, the pot is heated from the bottom, heat rises up the sides & heats the food within.

  6. I learned that it is energy efficient. I have never really thought about that aspect of slow cooking before, so it’s just another reason to love it.

  7. I’ve been using my slowcooker going on 30 years and am only now learning how to convert the recipes…wish I would have known this soon lol….thanks for the info 🙂

  8. I learned that liquids do not evaporate in a slow cooker so I should add less water if adapting a conventional stovetop recipe

  9. I did not know that a small slow cooker uses approximately the same power as one and a half 100 watt light bulbs. I learned that it uses less energy because it cooks with contained heat.

  10. I learned that Liquids do not evaporate in a slow cooker. Unless you are cooking rice, pasta, or beans, reduce the amount of liquid to about half the amount called for in your recipe.

  11. I learned that I could use regular recipes if they recipe call for cooking something “low and slow,” the slow cooker will work excellently.

  12. Never thought about it before but definitely noticed it the other day when I added water when cooking my chicken:

    “Liquids do not evaporate in a slow cooker. Unless you are cooking rice, pasta, or beans, reduce the amount of liquid to about half the amount called for in your recipe.”

  13. I learned that there’s a gap between the liner and the outer area (wrap?) that prevents over heating. I’ve wondered about newer slow cookers and this, and was interesting.

  14. I learned: Liquids do not evaporate in a slow cooker. Unless you are cooking rice, pasta, or beans, reduce the amount of liquid to about half the amount called for in your recipe.

  15. I just learned that ground beef should be browned and drained before slow cooking to remove grease. An extra step that will surely make a big difference in any beef recipe. Thanks for the info.

  16. I learned how to convert recipes to the slow cooker. The tips make sense and will be easy to remember when picking meals to throw into the slow cooker. I love our slow cooker it’s such a time saver and everything turns out so delicious.

  17. I learnt lots about converting recipes to slow cooking such as liquids do not evaporate in a slow cooker so we must reduce the amount of liquid to about half the amount called for in your recipe (unless you are cooking rice, pasta, or beans).

  18. I learned that liquids do not evaporate. I mean I guess it makes sense, but I never really thought about it until I read it!

  19. I learned that dairy ingredients need to be added at the end of cooking, recipes can be converted to slow cooking and that liquids do not evaporate in a slow cooker

  20. I learned that I can convert my favorite recipes to slow cooker recipes if I keep in mind important differences in respect to liquid & cook time

  21. I learned that seafood should only be added in the last 15-30 minutes, which I did not realize. Although, I guess you wouldn’t want to slow-cook fish anyway (stinky!)

  22. you can convert any of your favorite recipes to a slow cooker adding less water and putting tender foods like rice in at the last hour then dairy products after that

  23. I learned that liquids do not evaporate in a slow cooker so use only half the liquid in a recipe unless you are cooking rice, pasta, or beans

  24. I learned why my attempt at baked beans in a borrowed slow cooker didn’t go as planned – liquids don’t evaporate! Proves that it’s worth the while to read up more when attempting new recipes in a slowcooker. Would love a Hamilton Beach cooker of my own to try lots of new recipes in!

  25. I learned to reduce my liquids which makes complete sense. I also learned how you can convert recipes to a slow cooker…:)

  26. I learned that a small slow cooker uses approximately the same power as one and a half 100 watt light bulbs. Because it cooks with contained heat, it uses less energy.
