I know you are busy..that just a given in life. My day begins at 4:30 am and, with luck, I may be in bed before 12:00 am. With 6 year old twins and a 10 year, all boys, it’s a non-stop, ever fun and on the go life in our household. Kraft Recipe Makers are a great way to make easy meals and lend that helping hand in the kitchen so many of us need.
Kraft makes deciding what to make for dinner tonight an easy choice. Each of the 9 Kraft Recipe Makers include two sauces, a simmer sauce to use while cooking and a finishing sauce, to add even more amazing flavor at the end.
I decided to make Kraft BBQ Beef Recipe Maker meal kit since we love and use Kraft BBQ Sauce often. I picked up a chuck roast listed on the box and put it in the crock pot as soon as I got home. Topped it with the Brown Sugar Cider Vinegar Simmer Sauce and finished it with Hickory BBQ Sauce for the best easy meal! It was a hit stuffed inside pretzel buns and rolls!
We ate them while watching a movie with crock pot sweet potatoes and baked beans. I have several crock pots which are great for easy family meals. These Hickory BBQ Beef Stuffed Pretzel Buns are perfect to make ahead for picnics or lunches as ready-made meals. You can keep in the refrigerator for 2 days or in the freezer for a couple of weeks. They do not have the same appearance as freshly baked, however, they do have the same amazing taste.
Let’s make these wonderful Kraft Recipe Makers Hickory BBQ Beef Stuffed Pretzel Buns!
