I recently tried out some of the Limited Edition Baked Sides from Reser’s Main St. Bistro Line and I was pleasantly surprised. Honestly, most ready-made foods that boast a “homemade” taste or quality rarely live up to those standards; however, these tasty side dishes left my family asking for more!
On the packaging, it states that these sides can be “ready in 6 minutes” which is great for busy moms on the go who need something wholesome to add to a quick dinner. You can make them in the microwave or the oven, and I actually tried both just to see how they tasted depending on the preparation and they were delicious both ways! I was impressed!
My personal favorites were the Scalloped Potato Bake and the Homestyle Stuffing, while my two kiddos who are ages one and three loved the Macaroni and Cheese, and the hubby loved the Spiced Apple Bake. Each of these truly had a homemade taste and texture. They do this cool thing called “Top Bake” which give it that “my mommy just made this fresh for me” kinda feel instead of just some ready-made stuff off the shelf. These are also well-seasoned which is great because so many prepared foods need to be “babied” a bit to make them taste decent and these didn’t even need any salt or pepper!
These were so good that I honestly caught myself creeping back into the kitchen late at night when the kids were all in bed to snack on some more of those potatoes. 😉 Of course, being a mom, I obviously didn’t eat much at dinner trying to make sure everyone else had eaten! Ha!
Truthfully, I think that you could easily pass these for homemade if they were plated up at any holiday gathering and nobody would know the difference. I am serious! I am a self-proclaimed “foodie” so that means a lot coming from my picky palate!
