Make Memorable Moments. ALDI Makes it Easy.
Easter is a special day and it’s all about creating delicious and memorable moments with those we care about most.
Whether you’re hosting an Easter brunch, lunch or dinner, I have a few delicious dishes that will make your Easter meal memorable without breaking the bank.
Shopping at ALDI is an easy way to add that special touch to your meals while saving you enough to double the guest count. You can save up to 50% compared to other grocery stores* on everything from fresh produce, olive oils, and organic and gluten-free options.
*Based upon a price comparison of comparable products sold at leading national retail grocery stores.
Watch me share these ideas in a TV segment on Let’s Talk Live D.C.
Sweet and Savory Easter Ham
It’s not Easter without a ham! This is an Apple Cider and Balsamic Glazed Spiraled Ham, to add a delicious sweet and savory twist to your typical holiday ham. I baked apples and onions with the ham, and while that’s baking, combine the vinegars with brown sugar to form a glaze. Glaze the ham, then pop it back in the oven until a nice caramelized crust forms.
If you have leftover ham you can make easy ham sliders, great with lettuce and tomato and honey mustard – or cook it up for breakfast with eggs and fruit.
If you shop on Wednesdays, ALDI offers Weekly Fresh Meat Specials where you can find extra-low prices on the best cuts of meats.
Side Dishes to Decorate Your Table with Color
For nice grill marks, brush baguette slices with olive oil, and grill for 2 minutes on each side. (This is worth the step!) Add a layer of creamy spread, followed by the glazed carrots.
To finish it, I used Southern Grove sliced almonds in this bruschetta for a crunchy garnish, along with parsley.
You can find several varieties of Southern Grove nuts, including walnuts and pecans at an ALDI near you.
This snap pea salad with deviled egg vinaigrette tastes like spring in a bowl! The salad is loaded with vibrant sweetness and crunch from the veggies with a creamy vinaigrette dressing made with ALDI SimplyNature apple cider vinegar for a crowd-pleasing, colorful springtime salad at your Easter table.
ALDI SimplyNature features nearly 200 everyday products. All SimplyNature products are free of 125 artificial ingredients and are either organic or verified by the Non-GMO Project.
ALDI-fy Your Easter Basket
Aren’t these darling? You can find everything for this Easter basket at ALDI for a limited time while supplies last and it will cost you less than $15!
Aside from the candy we all know kids love, you can fill eggs with Southern Grove Yogurt Covered Raisins and even baby carrots and grapes for little kids to enjoy with the Easter Bunny.
I also like to give my kids experiences as gifts so filling eggs with activities like movie tickets, planting a garden together or a loving note from mom and dad, these types of gifts make everyone happy.
