A Gift for You

Boy it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas — if not outside (um, hello sixty-degree December day in New York?!) then at least here on Dinner: A Love Story. Because today, I’m so happy to present to you this nice big gift to unwrap: A Christmas Brunch Kit from my longtime partner Applegate. If you head over to their site, you’ll read the story and the recipe behind the Sausage-Kale Tart you see above, but if you come back here, you can be eligible to win a whole bunch of things that will make any holiday brunch — Christmas, New Year’s, Boxing Day?? — that much merrier. Including:

**A generous supply of Applegate Natural Breakfast Sausages (both patties and links): Chicken and Apple, Chicken and Maple, Chicken and Sage, and (Abby’s favorite) Classic Pork
**A copy of both Dinner, A Love Story and Dinner: The Playbook (woo hoo!)
**A casserole dish (not shown above, but trust me, it’s prettttty)
**And some awesome Applegate swag: magnets, a travel cup, a spiral notepad, a chico foldable bag and more.

Not bad, right?? All you have to do be eligible to win is comment below. One winner will be chosen at random on Monday, December 21 at 12:00 PM ET. Good luck everyone and THANK YOU APPLEGATE!

Update: The winner has been notified. Congrats Angela, and thanks to everyone who played!

I was just thinking about Christmas morning brunch. We’ll be with my in-laws the the only thing they ever eat on Christmas Day morning is monkey bread. I’m really sensitive to sugar so even though I love cinnamony monkey bread I can only have a couple bites before nearly passing out from the sugar overload in my system. The rest of the family can survive on it just fine until dinner at 5:00, but not me. So, it’s become my responsibility to ensure that there is something else to eat so that I don’t spend my Christmas Day in a hangry rage. This looks like just right recipe. Thanks for sharing!

This would be so nice. I was planning on making a breakfast dish similar to this for Christmas brunch.

I have never experienced applegate products. But would love to try some. And of course your cooking book is an awesome bonus.

What a perfect holiday-time giveaway! Doesn’t feel much like winter (weather-wise) up in Montreal either. Hope this is open to Canadian residents! Fingers crossed :)

Perfect timing! This is the gift I needed; just thinking today that I had to figure out what we were eating between the opening of the presents and the big dinner and that I did not need one more thing to do this week. And no, for the love of all things Christmas, no waffles this year! Recipe sounds perfect, cannot wait to try it next week!

You just inspired me to propose a New Year’s Day open house brunch to my husband… I’m not sure we can pull it off, but I like the idea. :)

Dear Jenny, Thank you for your blog, your cookbooks, and your ability to instill confidence in outside-the-house-but-still-work-in-the-house-never-enough-time-small-kids-growing-to-bigger-kids cooks like me. I love Applegate (chicken apple sausages? yum!), but really I’m rooting for the casserole dish. You have such good taste! Happy holidays!

Christmas breakfast is one of my favorite parts of the holiday! Such a good recipe to add to the mix.

Me! My daughter, who is overall a great eater, has decreed that she no longer eats sandwiches (??). She takes “cracker stackers” for lunch instead – crackers, cheese, and Applegate salami.

I’d love to win this! I find holiday breakfasts hard sometimes – isn’t the nice dinner enough? I always forget about it and then have to scrounge something together with random ingredients. ;)

I discovered the Applegate breakfast sausages just two weeks ago. I tend to buy fresh sausages and they were out and pointed me towards the frozen section. I had no idea they were so good! New weekend breakfast staple in our house!

My children have the chicken and apple sausages almost every morning. They are delicious! The tart/quiche looks delicious!

What an excellent, and timely, giveaway! I am a huge fan of breakfast tarts, frittatas and casseroles. Would love to give this recipe a try.

Happy holidays!

Sausage and kale – Always a winning combo in my book! We made a soup with sausage, kale and white beans last night.

We usually make eggs Benny for brunch, but this looks like a great contender to change things up!

It looks like a good recipe — I love sausage, but I don’t love kale; can I sub spinace or collards?

Great giveaway idea!! Our holiday brunch tradition involves scrapple (a Pennsylvania Dutch tradition), but we always add sausage for the faint of heart. Thanks, Applegate!

Thank you! It certainly doesn’t feel like the holidays with the recent warm weather in NY but I’ll take this over last year’s polar vortex. Happy Holidays to you, your family and everyone at Applegate!

We usually do a strata on Christmas morning because I can assemble it the night before, but eggs in a pastry crust sounds very tempting…

Applegate Farms is hands down our favorite bacon, so fingers crossed on this one. We haven’t yet tried the sausage.

Christmas is starting to feel like Christmas (both the weather here in MN brrrrrr and the sheer panic that its less than a week away)! The thing I want to win most off this list is your Playbook since I already have your fabulous cookbook :)

I agree that post-gift-opening brunch is a great meal. I haven’t tried Kale in a recipe, but would love to try this one, especially since I can make it ahead. Thanks!

Mmm.. those sausages would be a perfect addition to our #30days30dinners. We’re loving our new, more organized family dinners, thanks to the advice in Dinner: The Playbook.

I actually LOVE Applegate Farm products!! I regularly use their Sunday Bacon, and love their Chicken and Apple breakfast sausage. It would be pretty great to win a asst of their products, and Dinner, the Playbook. I regularly use the DALS book and would love to win a copy of Playbook. Have a wonderful Holiday!!

This looks great. It is always a challenge to find the right thing for Christmas breakfast, special but not something that takes a lot of time or effort.

I love chicken and sage sausage! I add it in to the butternut squash/ricotta/penne recipe from Time for Dinner – it’s one of my absolute favorite fall and winter recipes. Thanks for the giveaway (and for that recipe)!

This sounds delicious. How does it work when you make it in advance? Do you fill the pie shell in advance, or add the filling just before cooking?

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, for the opportunity to overindulge without feeling too bad about it (ya have the whole day ahead to exercise that off!) … Remember when your kids were little and a luxurious breakfast happened 3 X a year– once when grandma had the kids overnight, once for a sleepover-there birthday party, and finally at Christmas morning when the husband, as much a kid as the kid, entertained the little one with the first carefully selected gift?
As I get older, I need to limit my overindulgence, but Christmas will always include a rich egg dish and meat on the side– but the only exercise to combat that is lifting cup after cup of egg-nog-laced coffee…
