  • Green chilies give this creamy, cheesy breakfast casserole a Southwestern twist.
  • With bananas, chocolate and peanut butter, these delicious muffins are worth waking up for!
  • Waldorf Salad gets a makeover with creamy AE Lowfat Yogurt, sweet-tart Craisins and crunchy pecans.
  • As festive as it is delicious! Egg Nog and sour cream make for semi-homemade holiday deliciousness.
  • “Tres leches” means “three milks” in Spanish, and this vanilla cake soaked in a three-milk syrup and chilled overnight, is a holiday tradition in many Latin American countries. Our rendition features AE Horchata, and is something really special. Frosted with whipped cream and served with a winter fruit compote, it just might become a holiday tradition in your house too!
  • Classic comfort food, this shepherd’s pie has all the hearty goodness you remember from your childhood, but even better with AE real sour cream dip. Use ground turkey or a frozen veggie combo of your choice to put your own signature spin on the dish.
  • Bread pudding never tasted so good! Enjoy this simple dessert during the holiday season when AE Egg Nog is readily available.
  • The texture and mild flavor of this cousin to the common cabbage gets a tasty makeover with the addition of garlic and the creamy tanginess of sour cream.
  • Using a rotisserie chicken, this satisfying soup balances the boldness of southwest flavors in a creamy chicken stock.
  • This classic dessert gets a makeover with Greek yogurt for extra creaminess and the ultimate in chocolate satisfaction.
  • AE Egg Nog adds richer flavor and texture to this American holiday classic. You should probably bake an extra one!
  • This cross between an oatmeal cookie and a muffin is anything but boring. Serve warm with milk for an extra hearty start to the day.
  • The flavors of pumpkin, sugar and spice combine with sour cream and milk for crisp, yet tender waffles that are drizzled with a homemade buttermilk caramel syrup. Breakfast or dessert?!
  • A cross between a muffin and a crustless quiche, these are tasty protein fuel made with AE Cottage Cheese for a "Grab and Go" breakfast or sit-down brunch. The fresh tomato relish makes them company worthy and using a blend of roasted corn and peppers adds a delicious flavor layer.
  • Creamy rice pudding is a holiday tradition in Scandinavian homes, but this one gets a flavor twist with AE Horchata and a delicious fruit sauce. This is a great dessert for entertaining because everything can be made a day or two ahead and chilled.
  • Buttermilk is a natural meat tenderizer, and this classic favorite includes marinating time as well as drying time to set the coating. The result is a perfect blend of moist, flavorful chicken in a light, crisp cover.
  • A homemade version of the popular candy bar with the irresistible combo of caramel and chocolate.
  • This soup is a delicious addition to game-day gatherings and potluck suppers. Serve it with a fresh green salad and warm, crusty bread.
  • Potatoes get the royal treatment with dairy creaminess from four of our AE favorites, including Dip and Cottage Cheese
  • AE Cottage Cheese and Greek Yogurt add flavor and creamy texture in this spin on a pub classic. It’s delicious with pita crisps or fresh veggies for dipping, but we also love it as a topper on baked potatoes!
  • Egg Nog in a frozen state is the perfect accompaniment to holiday cakes and pies. Imagine this on a piece of pecan pie… Outrageous!
  • French Toast made delicious and easy (the night before) with its own caramel syrup.
  • AE Ranch Dip punches up this “low-bake” appetizer with bold flavor and creaminess. Think of it as a crudité platter on a pizza crust! Outstanding!
  • Ah, pumpkin—the official flavor of Fall! A hint of AE Orange Juice and fresh orange peel give these delightfully old-fashioned cookies a touch of sophistication.
  • These fudgy brownies with a touch of AE Sour Cream are the ultimate chocolate rush! The instant coffee granules help amp up the flavor of the chocolate. You can also add walnuts or pecans to the batter to give the brownies another flavor dimension.
  • This hearty soup, made with AE Milk and Cheddar French Onion Dip captures all the flavors of a cheeseburger. A winner at tailgating parties and Fall gatherings! The lettuce, tomato, and pickle garnishes add to the flavor—and the fun!
