Blooming Prairie Ground Beef Sliders
Small-scale, local, sustainable
Ground beef sliders are small and perfect for potlucks, so there’s room to sample everything on the table. Use Blooming Prairie beef to support Minnesota beef farmers that raise cattle without growth hormones, antibiotics, or steroids for excellent flavor.
Whole Grain Milling Nachos
Great nachos start with great chips, and Whole Grain Milling chips are just that! These locally made chips possess a rich corn flavor and are sturdy enough to hold up to piling on all of your favorite toppings. Not into nachos? They are great for dipping, too.
Seward-Made Sausage Chili
Small-scale, local, cooperative, sustainable
Few things are better on a cold winter day than homemade chili. Take yours to the next level when you choose local, cooperatively made sausage as a base for your spicy stew. Remove the casings from pork, lamb, or chicken sausages for extra flavor, or mix them in with ground beef.
Equal Exchange Guacamole
Small-scale, cooperative, inclusive
Nothing says game day like dips, and guacamole is a classic favorite for any gathering. Make your own with Equal Exchange avocados. Their fair trade, small-scale farmer program ensures Mexican farmers who raise and harvest the avocados have access to resources that provide a better quality of life and more sustainable agricultural practices.
Kadejan Chicken Wings
Wings are a delicious and customizable treat. Toss them in a dry rub or sauce them as spicy as you and your guests like. Choose delicious Kadejan wings to support local farmers who raise free-range poultry without vaccines or antibiotics.
