One of my family’s favorite winter activities is getting together for a fun family movie night! Of course a movie night needs food, and in my family “breakfast for dinner” is always a huge hit. Now Tyson Foods is combining dinner and a movie with their #TysonFreeMovieNight Promotion. With this deal you can get Redbox promo codes for a free movie night when you buy participating Tyson, Jimmy DeanÂ®, or State FairÂ® products at Walmart.
I think movie night is the perfect time to try pancakes on a stick, so I picked up two boxes of the participating products, the Jimmy Dean 12 count Pancakes and Sausage on a stick in both regular and Blueberry flavor and made a quick Blueberry Dipping Sauce to go with them for a fun, low effort family movie night dinner.
These pancakes are fun because they are a sausage on a stick with a pancake wrapped around it for a cute kid friendly meal. I love pancakes, but I much prefer a fruity blueberry syrup to a maple flavored one. This blueberry dipping sauce is easy to make, and takes just a few minutes on the stove to put together.
- 1 c. fresh or frozen blueberries
- ⅓ c. orange juice or water
- ¼ c. sugar
- 1 T cornstarch
- 1 T cold water
- Mix the blueberries, orange juice or water and sugar in a small sauce pan.
- Heat until boiling and then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring gently so the blueberries don't get all broken apart.
- Mix the cold water and cornstarch in a small bowl, then stir into the blueberry mixture and stir for another minute.
The recipe is a simple combination of fresh or frozen blueberries, mixed with sugar and orange juice and thickened with a little bit of cornstarch. And if there is any blueberry sauce leftover after dinner you can always spoon it over ice cream for dessert!
The extra blueberry flavor made the blueberry pancakes even better! I also included a bowl of maple syrup for dipping, since my husband is not as enthusiastic about blueberries as the kids and I are.
