Giveaway: Progresso Broth


It seems that I’ve been in the kitchen a lot more than usual. Perhaps you have, too, now that “the holidays” have officially begun. This is my first holiday to have a stockpile in my pantry, so I’ve had the opportunity to try new things in my holiday cooking. One new product that I recently tried was Progresso Broth. It was quite good in the gravy I made last week.

Prepared broth is so handy. I use it in Mexican rice, rice pilaf, gravy, chicken pot pie, soups and stews. I’ll also be using it in the tamales I make later this week.

Yes, I often make stock from scratch, but opening a can or box can be so much easier than waiting for my frozen tubs to thaw. You can make use of this great coupon for savings on your next purchase of Progresso Broth. Lately, it’s been on sale in a number of my local stores, making it a great item to stockpile. I say you can never have too much broth in the cupboard.

And so I am very pleased to offer a Progresso giveaway this week.

According to their spokespeople,

Progresso is making it easier to create your favorite holiday recipes with the introduction of all-natural Progresso Chicken, Reduced Sodium Chicken and Beef-flavored broths. Progresso’s broths are 99% fat free and contain no preservatives, artificial flavors, or MSG*! They even come in convenient, re-sealable 32oz cartons.

I have three gift baskets, similar to the one pictured, to give away. Each one includes a free coupon for Progresso Broth, a recipe card holder, recipe box and wicker basket, as well as a set of serving spoons and a spoon rest. Very cool, indeed. And very timely as well.

For a chance to win, simply share in the comments section your favorite use for broth. Contest is open until 10 pm PST on Saturday, December 6. Winners will be announced Monday morning.

(And if you win, please contact me within 48 hours or I will have to choose a new winner. I have a hard enough time finding my kids’ shoes, so I can’t go hunting for you, too.)

    I love cooking my mashed potatoes in chicken broth, and then using the reserved liquid to mash them. Add a little cream cheese, and you have potatoes so tasty you hardly need butter. Skinny mashed potatoes!

  2. I use chicken broth to make my broccoli cheese soup. I just puree the steamed broccoli in chicken broth. Heat it up and add the shredded cheese. Yummy!

  3. I use broth in my mashed potatoes and rice. Recently, I’ve loved using leftover chicken broth to make homemade chicken noodle soup.

  4. Zimms Zoo says:

    We mostly use it in soups. It makes everything taste better. I also use it in rice.

  5. Innocent Observer says:

    My favorite thing to use beef broth for is to take a mess of onions and make French onion soup. Mmmmm.

    I love using chicking broth in my chicken pot pie recipe.

  7. The Things We Do says:

    Count me in, Fishmama! I love to use it for a lot of things like you listed but I think my favorite is for a soup starter when I’m in a hurry. I add water to it and I’m ready to start throwing stuff in my soup pot. =0)

  8. I use stock instead of water in rice mixes and mashed potatoes (boil the potatoes with stock and then smash with butter and cream). My favorite use is the mashed potatoes though. Great blog, I love reading your posts and find them very inspirational! :-) Regina

  10. Jeremy and Michele says:

    I use broth in my black bean soup, which comes together in ten minutes from start to finish.

    I mostly use my chicken broth in soups. My sister just told me she used it in the brussel sprouts she made for T-giving and I would love to try that myself. They were super yummy.

  12. Mrs. Querido says:

    I use broth to make really yummy rice! My mom taught me to use chicken bouillon to add some flavor, but sometimes broth is just easier!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  13. JessieLeigh says:

    I think I use the most broth making Hot & Sour Peanut Noodles simply because that's a fave of the whole fam. I must confess I usually use bouillon (because I don't like the fattiness of my own stock and it's cheaper than broth :))…

    Thanks!
