Aldi Easter brunch

Do you have your Easter menu planned yet? Whether you’re celebrating during breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner on that Sunday, Aldi sells everything you need to make a fantastic Easter meal without having to shop anywhere else.

Below, we’re sharing links to our reviews of some of our personal favorites that you might want to showcase on your Easter table this year. Most of these are products you can find at Aldi all year, while a few such as the ham and bone-in turkey breast are Seasonal Favorites that are available during the holiday season.

Breakfast or Brunch:

Pastries:

Main courses:

  • Ham — Aldi sells several types of ham during the Easter season. Some of our more recent favorites include Appleton Farms Spiral Sliced Hickory Smoked Honey Ham and Never Any! Applewood Smoked Uncured Spiral Ham. Spiral-sliced hams at Aldi are usually Seasonal Favorites that show up during the holidays but are not sold year round.
  • Maple Leaf Farms Roast Half Duck — This comes with an orange glaze/sauce and is a fun change if you’re tired of traditional ham or turkey. This is usually only at Aldi during holidays and not all year.
  • Kirkwood Bone-In Turkey Breast — If you like turkey for the holidays but aren’t feeding a crowd, this is a great option. It roasts nicely in the oven and the skin comes out brown and crisp. This is another item that’s at Aldi during holidays only, not year round.
  • Mediterranean Herb Atlantic Salmon — Salmon can be a nice lighter option for an Easter meal, and you’d have a hard time finding some with more flavorful seasoning than this one.
  • Bremer Cheese Lasagna Rolls — These are found in the Regular Buy freezer section and make a great base for a delicious meal. You’ll need to add your own sauce (we like the Aldi Simply Nature Organic Marinara Pasta Sauce) and some shredded cheese for the top, so don’t forget to pick those up while you’re at the store.
  • Reggano Oven Ready Lasagna Noodles — If you prefer to make lasagna from scratch, Aldi has noodles to help you with that. The directions on the current box can be confusing, so we recommend following the recipe in our post, which used to be printed on an older package design for these noodles. You can’t go wrong using this recipe, and you’ll get plenty of complements when you serve it.
  • Kirkwood Cornish Game Hen — If you’re not serving a lot of people, or if you want to give each person their own personal bird, these little hens are a fun main course.
  • Boneless Pork Butt Roast — A bit nontraditional for Easter, but this is good in the slow cooker and makes delicious pulled pork for sandwiches, nachos, loaded baked potatoes, or whatever you fancy.

Appetizers and Sides:

Dessert:

  • Specially Selected Macarons — Found in the Regular Buy freezer section, these delectable little sandwich cookies from Belgium are not to be missed. They’ll also look great on a fancy Easter table display.
  • My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream — These are small balls of ice cream covered with Japanese mochi (pounded sticky rice), which is a sweet, soft dough. Flavors can vary, but they usually include standard favorites such as chocolate and strawberry, along with the more novel mango. They make a nice light, sweet finish to any special meal.
  • Belmont Cheesecake — These are sold year round in packs containing two slices, with a choice of New York Style, Strawberry Swirl, and Turtle flavors. You’ll also find limited-time whole cheesecakes in various flavors in the Aldi Find freezer section during the Easter season.
  • Belmont Deep Dish Pie Crust — If homemade pie is more your thing, Aldi sells these in the freezer section, and you can fill them with whatever you want.
  • Baker’s Corner Cherry Pie Filling — If you need easy canned filling for your pie crusts, Aldi’s got it. It’s also great as an ice cream topping.
  • Belmont Ice Cream — And if you prefer your pie à la mode, Aldi has several ice cream options to satisfy. We highly recommend these. Or if you’re an ice cream purist, you might like Aldi’s Specially Selected Super Premium Ice Cream that contains only whole ingredients such as milk, cream, and vanilla.
  • Friendly Farms Whipped Dairy Topping — If you’d rather top your pie with whipped cream, Aldi’s got that, too. This is the fun stuff in the can that you can spray.

Candy for Baskets:

  • Knoppers Milk Hazelnut Wafers — A treat from Germany, these are like a cross between a wafer cookie and a candy bar, with a creamy hazelnut filling. Try them. We think you’ll like them.
  • Choceur Chocolate Surprise Egg — These are large chocolate eggs filled with smaller truffles or assorted European Chocolates, making them a unique treat for the Easter basket or the dessert table. These are only available during the Easter season at Aldi.
  • Choceur Chocolate Crème Eggs with Spoon (Chocolate Dip Eggs) — These are new to Aldi this year. They’re small chocolate eggs containing a milk crème or cookies and crème filling. They’re packaged in cute little Styrofoam cartons and come with plastic spoons for eating the egg filling.
