For the past several weeks I’ve been singing the praises of our local grocery store, ALDI. They’re a great fit for our family because they believe that high-quality food should be easy and affordable, and as a busy mother of three I can definitely use all of the help I can get when it comes to saving time and money! With the help of ALDI, we held a dinner party last week with a menu that was completely inspired by the fresh selection of foods that ALDI has to offer.
It’s easy to be inspired with a store like this because they focus on the things that families truly want without all of the bells and whistles. That means you don’t have to choose between a million different brands that are all selling the same thing. In fact, almost 90% of their products are ALDI-exclusive brands. And all of them are free from added MSG, certified synthetic colors and hydrogenated oils.
Since you’re not shopping aisles and aisles of the same things, it makes it much easier to get what you need quickly, giving you more time to do other things you need to do; like cook yummy foods for your friends and family!
These Meatball Crostinis were a big hit at our dinner party and there was enough left over for the rest of us to snack on all week long. And it all started with a few fresh ingredients, like SimplyNature Organic Gras-Fed Groud Beef. We grabbed some Specially Selected Artisan French Baguette from the bakery aisle at ALDI. Then from the fresh produce, we used the SimplyNature Organic Baby Arugula and SimplyNature Organic Spinach, fresh onions, garlic and red bell peppers. From the pantry aisle we used bread crumbs, flour, SimplyNature Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and balsamic vinegar and whole grain mustard.
I can’t help myself, I’m just a sucker for adding fresh veggies to everything!
Form the meat into balls and roll them with your hands, then dip in flour, eggs, and finally breadcrumbs.
Fry each one until cooked throughout.
Then put the meatballs on top of your toasted baguette along with all of the other toppings (the full recipe is listed below, convenient for you to print if you need to!)
The great prices and selection at ALDI make it a literal one-stop shop for our busy lives, whether it’s feeding our family or serving dinner guests. Comment below about your own great ALDI experience for a chance to win a $250 Gift Card to ALDI!
