It may seem like the main course is the star of the Christmas table, but that’s about to change thanks to supermarket Aldi’s huge range of delicious and innovative side dishes.
From Loaded Yorkshire Puddings to Honey & Mustard Parsnips, when it comes to sides and trimmings this Christmas, Aldi has everything you’ll ever need and they’re in store now!
NEW for 2019, the Loaded Yorkshire Puddings (£2.99, 396g) created exclusively for supermarket Aldi. These individual mini Yorkshire puddings, topped with a British pork, sage & onion stuffing ball and finished with a pig in blanket is Christmas dinner in just one mouthful!
They are perfect as a Christmas side dish or canape and are sure to ‘wow’ your guests. What’s more, the Loaded Yorkshire Puddings are Red Tractor approved, so you can rest easy knowing you and your dinner guests are getting the best quality meat, but at the everyday amazing Aldi prices we all love.
For another stuffing treat and also Red Tractor approved, try Aldi’s Specially Selected Stuffing Baubles with Barber’s Cheddar Cheese & Chutney or Caramelised Onion (£2.49, 300g). These bitesize mouthfuls are made with British pork and blended with a choice of either traditional Barber’s Cheddar Cheese & Chutney or a sweet sensation of caramelised onion.
Enjoy a luxurious twist on a festive favourite with Aldi’s Specially Selected Truffled Cauliflower Cheese (£2.19, 450g). Tender cauliflower florets in a rich and creamy Wyke Farm cheddar cheese sauce and hand garnished with crispy, golden breadcrumbs and Taw Valley mature cheddar – this side is a perfect addition for a cheese lover.
For a fresh and zesty addition, add Aldi’s Specially Selected Red Cabbage (£1.99, 500g) to your Christmas table. It’s made with British red cabbage and braised in red wine vinegar and sweet Christmassy spices – finish at home by adding orange rind for a sharp colour and a zingy taste.
Brussel Sprouts are notorious for splitting the nation, but Aldi’s Specially Selected Brussels Sprout Gratin (£2.19, 450g) is guaranteed to convert even the most skeptical sprout nay-sayer. Made with a rich cheddar cheese sauce infused with mascarpone, its hand garnished with ciabatta and pesto breadcrumbs and topped with chestnut pieces. This side is a Christmas dinner must have.
Another Christmas table staple with a twist, Aldi’s Specially Selected Honey and Mustard Roast Parsnips (£1.99, 600g) are made with a blend of Wholegrain, Dijon and English Mustard with Blossom Honey – ensuring the perfect sticky and sweet finish. What’s more, prepared for your convenience, these come in a ready to cook tray to ensure perfectly roasted parsnips.
Also available in a ready to cook tray are Aldi’s Specially Selected Roast Potatoes with Goose Fat (£1.65, 800g), which emerge from the oven as the perfect roast potatoes. These British Golden Maris Piper potatoes are beautifully crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, and finished with a nice meaty hint thanks to the premium goose fat they’re cooked in.
Pair your sides with a selection of sauces such as Aldi’s Specially Selected Fresh Bread Sauce (£1.39, 300g) which is enriched with butter and double cream, and delicately flavoured with nutmeg.
Why not try the Specially Selected Cranberry Sauce Port & Cinnamon (£1.39, 300g) this year instead of the traditional cranberry sauce? The delicious aroma of port flavoured with cinnamon spices provides a good balance of sweetness and tartness, while the bitter taste of the ruby-coloured cranberries add a slight sharpness to it.
