An Aldi Christmas Feast

You can totally feast on food that costs a total of under $40. Don't believe me?  We made it happen this year by shopping at Aldi. It was totally yummy! I'm saving all of my recipes so that we can repeat this again next year.


1st Course (Brunch- 10:30)
Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Casserole
Hashbrown Casserole

Mid-day Snack (1pm)
Upside Down Pecan Cinnamon Rolls
Egg nog

2nd Course (Dinner- 6pm)
Cornish Game Hen
Leftover Hashbrown Casserole

End the day with egg nog and Christmas goodies

To make...

Sausage Egg and Cheese Casserole

1 lb sausage
6 eggs
1 tsp. onion
2 c. milk
1 tsp. salt and pepper
1 c. cheese
4 slices bread (or croutons)

grease pan. beat eggs, add ingredients.
pour into greased pan
Let it sit 20 min.
Bake on 350 for 30-40 min.

Hashbrown Casserole

1 large pkg. hashbrowns, thawed
1/2 c. onion*
2 c. cheese
1 container lite sour cream
1 1/2 c. roux (with butter, flour, milk, and salt)
1 c. crushed corn flakes
1/2 c. butter melted

grease pan. bake on 350 for 45 min.
at the end, add crushed corn flakes and pour 1/2 c. melted butter over top.
continue baking last 10-15 min.

Cornish Game Hen

I made one and it fed two people.  This was fine- the kids actually didn't eat it this year. Next year, I should probably buy 2-3 game hens, as they are pretty small (almost 3/4 the size of a roast chicken).

Coat with butter and salt and pepper.
Roast at 375 for about 45 minutes.

Sticky buns~ my Mom's recipe!
