Birds Eye is helping families include the goodness of vegetables in the holidays. They make holiday cooking easy enough for the kids to join in the meal prep and provides recipes so good you’ll want to make them together every year! You can spend more time with family, and less time in the kitchen with quick, easy, delicious recipes with Birds Eye vegetables. Frozen veggies provide as much nutrition as fresh, with added convenience and lower costs. They make it easy to include multiple vegetable options on your holiday table without any stress. Here are a few of my favorite recipes.
