If you thought your Easter Sunday roast couldn’t get any better, just wait until you see what Aldi has in store for you. Guaranteed to make a show stopping side dish for any Easter spread, the budget supermarket has come up with Hot Cross Stuffing Balls – your classic meaty side but with an Easter-inspired twist.
Part of the supermarket’s Specially Selected range, the stuffing balls are made of mouthwatering British outdoor bred pork mixed with dried fruit, Bramley apple, black pepper and cinnamon but the crowning glory is the pastry cross sitting atop each stuffing ball, making them reminiscent of a hot cross bun.
Selling for £2.29 for a 300g pack and available to nab from stores nationwide from 9 April, keen Aldi shoppers will recognise these Easter-inspired stuffing balls from last year’s seasonal offering from the German supermarket chain, when they were dubbed as ‘hot cross bun flavoured stuffing balls’.
The release of the moreish hot cross stuffing balls swiftly follows a deluge of recent Easter-themed foodie releases from Aldi, including a slew of fantastical Easter egg creations, from giant dragon and ostrich eggs to prosecco- and gin-infused chocolate creations.
Also on the sweet side of things is an Oozy Egg Trifle, which certainly gives the humble traditional trifle a run for its money – this £1.99 Easter-themed version combines a smooth and creamy chocolate mousse, chocolate sponge centre and a layer of fresh cream, topped off with an egg-stra special fondant topping. The trifle comes under the Everyday Amazing range will be available from 6 April.
Can’t decide between another hot cross bun or bread and butter pudding? You don’t have to with Aldi’s Specially Selected Hot Cross Bun Pudding, available in stores from 4 April. For £1.99, this sweet dish uses Aldi’s award winning Specially Selected Luxury Hot Cross Buns as the bread for this delicious Easter-themed take on a family favourite, bread and butter pudding.
And finally, back by popular demand are Aldi’s Bunny Crumpets. Already available to pick up in store, these novelty crumpets come in packs of four and are guaranteed to put a smile on anyone’s face.
