You can get free sausage-scented wrapping paper from Jimmy Dean

Where does sausage fall on your list of favorite foods? If you love it enough to say, decorate your tree with sausage ornaments or wrap your holiday presents in sausage wrapping paper, Jimmy Dean has some pretty interesting gifts you can win this holiday season.

The sausage company is once again giving fans a sausage-themed gift of their choice in exchange for cooking a recipe using Jimmy Dean premium pork sausage. What kind of gifts? We’re talking sausage-flavored candy canes, sausage Christmas ornaments and, back this year by popular demand, sausage-scented wrapping paper!

All you have to do to get your hands on a gift of your choice is cook up a meal in your kitchen using Jimmy Dean fresh roll sausage, then submit a picture of your dish to Jimmy Dean’s website. Then, simply pick your gift, wait for confirmation via email, fill out your info and your sausage-themed present will be on the way to your house!

The Jimmy Dean Recipe Gift Exchange included socks, cowboy slipper boots and Sweet n’ Savory lip balm when it began early last week, but those gifts are already all gone. The remaining gifts could also go quickly, so although the gift exchange goes through Dec. 17 at 11:59 p.m. ET, you’ll want to make sure you’re cooking up a recipe and submitting it soon.

Jimmy Dean says they will do their best to give you the gift you prefer, but you may get a different one if your favorite is no longer available. There is a limit of one gift per person and you must be 18 years old or older to participate. Gifts will be mailed within 6-8 weeks. In total, the company is giving away 2,450 free items.

If you’re feeling creative, come up with a brand new, from-scratch recipe for this exchange. If not, simply use the sausage to make something like meatballs for spaghetti. As long as you are using the fresh roll sausage and follow the rules, you’re qualified!

You can read the official rules on Jimmy Dean’s website. What recipe will you be making?
