Kikkoman House Party!

*I was sent the party pack from House Party on the behalf of Kikkoman for the sole purpose of sharing the word on brining, breading and using Kikkoman products for the upcoming holidays. I was not paid for my comments. They are my honest opinions. The items sent were shared with family and friends.* 

Thanksgiving is around the corner. And that means it is time to consider your menu. House Party is working with Kikkoman to get the word out on some yummy options you might want to consider adding to your spread. 

Have you considered a turkey brine instead of roasting it? When done right (and not like I did last year in a hurry), it brings out the moist, juicy flavors you and your guests crave. Or how about adding some crunch? There are recipes around the world that include Panko to coat a dish and add the munchiness (making up words here) to your table. 

I absolutely love the Kikkoman brand. They have so much more than just Panko or Soy Sauce.
I've been using the soy sauce to make my favorite dish, Korean Beef. But I have been eying other recipes that use their products. Like the Teriyaki sauce to make Teriyaki Meatballs. Mmm I don't always stick with traditional Thanksgiving dishes. I like to branch out and make other things. This year, Thanksgiving will be a little different. We are having it the weekend before the actual Thanksgiving Day. For starters, my three oldest kids will be with their dad for this years celebration week. In addition to that, my mother and sister in laws are flying to have Thanksgiving Day with my brother-in-law in California since he is a Marine and won't make it home this year. So instead of having a huge party, we had a dinner night with my mom and sister in law.
I made Koren Beef. We made mini egg rolls, mini cream cheese rangoons, postickers and rice. It was fun to be cooking together and then to dive in. 
After coming back home, I made some of the meatballs I mentioned.
The recipe had come with my party pack.
It was a huge hit! 2/3 kids fell in love with them. They actually begged me to make them again the next night.
They had tried it with fried rice, now they wanted them with spaghetti. Unfortunately, I had steaks cooking in the crock pot for the next nights dinner so they would have to wait another night. Who knew that teriyaki would be such a hit?! 
Here is the recipe I used:
Teriyaki Meatballs 
I handed out the party favors to friends and family. We LOVED the cute bottles of soy sauce with Hello Kitty pink designs on them.
I think that was definitely a big attraction. They pour so easy too! I went to the store for the Panko breadcrumbs. Normally, our store brand is cheaper. However, I found that Kikkoman was cheaper by a good .20!
On top of that, they come in resealable bags. This is great when you want the freshness to last a while longer. 
Overall, I love the Kikkoman products. They are easy to use, taste great, are a great price and found locally, and they know how to throw a great party! What would be your favorite part? What product would you like to try? Or have you tried?
