It’s almost here, Christmas is lurking around the corner and my little guy is going absolutely nuts with joy….or sugar.  It’s hard to determine the source of the energy but it’s so much fun getting to plan the day with him.  We host a holiday brunch every year for my family on Christmas morning and a breakfast casserole is always on the menu. Each year I try to come up with something new like last year’s Monte Cristo Casserole which is, still, a huge hit! So, for this year…I wanted to come up with something equally amazing with tons of flavor but a little less work.

  1. The best thing about shopping at ALDI is the product variety/selection, especially when it comes to their high quality gluten-free foods section.

  2. I love Aldi!! I buy my oatmeal and pantry staples there because you just can’t beat their prices. Also.. their chocolates are AMAZING!

  3. I love my local ALDI! 🙂 We have found that we actually like the taste & quality of most of their store brand equivalents to many of our favorite national brand foods & snacks. And the produce can’t be beat! So much cheaper than the national chains. 🙂

  4. In my quiet part of rural northwest Wisconsin , I’ve met people who have driven one hour each way to shop at ALDI. The prices and quality are well worth the trip, so good, in fact, that I drove one half hour each way to buy ingredients for a slow cooked vegetarian meal , and it more than paid for my gas.

  5. I do like my local ALDI too. Their canned veggies have great flavor and their wines are good also. I have not found anything that I bought there to be inferior to large chain grocery stores. Their produce is very good too. Their products are more reasonable priced and a bargain in my book. This Casserole sound great, can’t wait to try it.

  6. i love shopping at aldi (and they are actually opening one up near me in the spring…can’t wait! right now i have to drive a little ways). i love that they don’t have a million choices – it’s nice to just have ONE type of ___ to purchase instead of choosing from 596302 brands. also, i love their seasonal products – they always have interesting cheese/spreads/dips etc.

  7. I love ALDI’s frozen fruit and chocolate selections.

  8. I go to Aldi to buy frozen shrimp. It is a lot less expensive than at other stores.

  9. Thanks for the recipe. Since I do 90% of the cooking, every tip is helpful

  10. I live in Georgia, so happy we have several Aldi stores to shop at. My most favorite item is their Sourdough bread can never get enough of it.

  11. In my area Aldi has the cheapest milk and bread in town. I also like going in to find unadvertised deals, likely because they have overstock. Two times in the last month they had eggs for $.29. I felt like I was stealing them!!

  12. I love Aldi so much! My favorites are the Fit & Active 45 calorie bread and Fit & Active String Cheese. I swear these helped me so much losing weight and the prices for them are phenomenal compared to other brands. But there are so, so, so many other products that I love: Kirkwood stuffed chicken breasts, hummus, the single serve dark roast coffee, all of their great holiday goodies, wonderful cheap produce, and the list just goes on and on! I have a lot of Aldi feels, lol!! Thank you for the chance!

  13. I loooooove their GF bread! It’s the closest to real bread I’ve gotten!

  14. I’m looking for “the night before” recipes I can prep on Christmas Eve!

  15. My favorite Aldi’s product is their dairy products eggs butter cream cheese cheeses everything is great quality & such better prices than the regular stores

  16. Oh we just had our first Aldi open here just before Thanksgiving! I was so excited! For Thanksgiving we tried the Gluten free stuffing and gluten free french fried onions for the green bean casserole. Oh…it was sooo good! I have celiac disease, but the rest of the family gets to eat normal. I was so excited to have some stuffing and green bean casserole just for me! So glad they carry gluten free options!

  17. the best thing about aldi’s is the selection of wine at affordable prices

  18. We just got an Aldi near where I live (San Diego) and i LOVE it! It reminds me of shopping in Europe, especially with the chocolates. Mostly I love how affordable it is! Even though it’s a little out of the way, it’s totally my new go to grocery store.

  19. My favorite thing about Aldi’s is their wonderful prices on great quality foods like crackers and cereal.

  20. That looks and sounds so delicious. I have always been a huge fan of Aldi’s. Although I am in Georgia I have a few Aldi’s located near which I love. My staple products include their almond milk, their steak seasoning and of course all of the fruits and veggies!

  21. I love Ald’s chocolate and frozen fruit.

  22. I love Aldi’S gnocchi! It really is my favorite grocery store.

  23. I love the prices and international goods at Aldi.

  24. I love the cheaper produce at Aldi…still good quality but less expensive.

  25. I love their cookies and desserts!

  26. I love shopping at Aldi’s because they have great prices and now organic foods!
