“I love spending time in the kitchen with my family,” Ms. Drummond said. “While I always would love to make every single meal from scratch, with our hectic schedules, it’s not always possible. My new line of frozen breakfasts, sides and appetizers is perfect for families like ours who want flavorful options they feel good about serving and eating, without having to do all the prep work.”
Earlier this year, Kraft Heinz teamed with Ms. Drummond to launch a line of ranch dressings and dips, barbecue sauces and pasta sauces. The products debuted in April.
