I’m going to go out on a limb, and say that I’m pretty sure Tina Fey is singing about
Hormel® Cure 81® ham. I mean, c’mon…it’s delicious!

One of my family traditions is to have ham on both Easter and Christmas. My Dad ALWAYS requests a Cure 81 ham….and I totally understand why. It is SO good! (I make mine by mixing brown sugar and mustard together to a toothpaste-like consistency, and smearing it all over the top. Then I bake, and enjoy!)

Right now is the perfect time to start experimenting with Cure 81 ham, because there is a recipe contest going on! Now through October 18th, you can enter the Hormel® Cure 81® “Up the Steaks” Recipe Contest and “Ham-stakes”Sweepstakes!

Hormel® Cure 81® ham steaks come in four different single-serving varieties – Classic, Brown Sugar, Peppered, and Honey Cured. Since they are already fully cooked, they are an awesome lean protein to have on hand! Grill them, bake them, or eat them straight out of the package. These ham steaks are crazy versatile, and can be used in a variety of dishes.

I don’t know about you, but I tend to cook and bake more often in the fall. Well, Hormel wants YOU to get into the kitchen and raise the stakes on your cooking and grilling with a recipe contest.
