November 23, 2012 | By | Comments (0)

It’s that time of year again! The holidays are quickly approaching, and to help you prepare for hosting a hungry crowd of family and friends, ALDI is here to share recipes for success.

SAVE TIME IN THE KITCHEN: Combine traditional homemade recipes with pre-made items for a holiday spread that is sure to please—and will allow you to spend more time with loved ones. ALDI offers a variety of seasonal products and great holiday recipes developed by the ALDI Test Kitchen, which are perfect for any occasion.

GO EASY ON THE APPS: By serving a few tasty, no-fuss starters, you’ll keep guests’ appetites at bay without adding more to your cooking list. Pick up some ready-to-eat items at ALDI, like Clancy’s Honey Nut Party Mix, Southern Grove Peanut Trio Bowl, Sea Queen Jumbo Cooked Shrimp and Burman’s All Natural Cocktail Sauce. ALDI also offers a variety of seasonal gourmet cheeses including Specially Selected Smoked Gouda, Goat Cheese and Brie.ALL EYES ON THE ENTRÉES: Holiday meals center around the main event, so serve a few options to please eaters of all ages and taste preferences. Need some delicious inspiration? Try this savory Roasted Turkey Breast with Pumpkin Sage Gravy recipe or give into the sweet-tart flavor of Cranberry Cornbread Stuffed Turkey Roulade. To stray from typical turkey, spice up an Appleton Farms Spiral Sliced 1/2 Ham with an apple cider and balsamic glaze. These and other seasonal recipes from the ALDI Test Kitchen are available in the ALDI online holiday recipe book.DRESS UP DESSERT: For a fun twist on tradition, place bite size portions of ALDI L’oven Fresh pies and Belmont cheesecakes into mini martini glasses for a chic table display. Or add a new sweet treat to your dessert spread this year, like these delightful Honey Almond Spice Cookies—a fresh take on classic gingerbread with a zesty splash of lemon.REMEMBER TO RELAX AND ENJOY: The most important thing to keep in mind when hosting the holidays is to simply have fun! Don’t let perfection get in the way of enjoying time with the people you love.

And to make things as easy and convenient as possible, count on ALDI for all your holiday cooking and baking needs. From award-winning wines and culinary essentials to gifts and all the trimmings for your celebration dinner, ALDI has everything you need for holiday entertaining at prices up to 50 percent* less than traditional grocers.
