Sausage Balls

Easy Au Gratin Potatoes

As I was going through my review copy of the new Unofficial ALDI Cookbook, I knew pretty quickly that I wanted to make these Easy Au Gratin Potatoes. I’ve never made au gratin potatoes before—it always sounded like a lot of work…peeling the potatoes, boiling them, and then slicing them. Well, as this cookbook says, “This recipe bypasses the peeling and the boiling by using ALDI’s canned potatoes, and your family and your guests will be none the wiser.” That sounded good to me! 🙂

So I’m sharing the recipe with you in this post, but first I’ll tell you a little more about the book! The Unofficial ALDI Cookbook (softcover, Ulysses Press) has 75 recipes you can make with budget-friendly ALDI products. Not an ALDI shopper? No problem—you can substitute products from your favorite grocery store. There are full-color photos of the recipes too and they all look delicious! The five chapters include recipes for Beverages; Sides, Appetizers, and Soups; Breakfasts; Entrees; and Desserts. Some that I’d like to try in the future include:

This Easy Savory Cornbread starts off with some corn muffin mix and gets its’ savory flavor from a can of diced tomatoes and green chilies, along with a cup of cheddar cheese mixed into the batter. Pretty easy, right?

I had been wanting to make a really cheesy, creamy broccoli casserole for some time, and finally had the chance to create one! I love how super-creamy and cheesy it is—and the buttery cracker topping is pretty wonderful too! 🙂

There’s lots of shredded cheddar cheese in this (4 cups!), along with some rotisserie chicken, a little onion and garlic, chopped green bell pepper, black olives, and some cream of mushroom soup and sour cream to make it nice and creamy!
