If You Buy One Thing from Aldi This Week, Let It Be This “Delicious” $7 Gourmet Dinner Find
Can you believe Super Bowl Sunday is already almost here? With the big game this weekend, it’s crucial to have some of the best comfort snacks on hand to snack on while the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers duel it out on our screens. (Not to mention, there will be a stellar Usher performance at halftime.) If you’ve already picked up Clancy’s Hint of Lime Tortilla Chips and a tub of the viral Toom Garlic Dip, you still may be searching for a couple more items to add to your spread of pizza and chicken wings.
Luckily, Aldi always has us covered — and with amazing prices, no less. According to Instagram, the grocer is currently selling Specially Selected Bacon Wrapped Sea Scallops. While seafood isn’t typically associated with game day, the salty finger food may be just the thing you need to keep your appetizer table interesting.
“Clear your schedule, cancel plans, and tell your boss you’ve got a sudden case of ‘I must buy all the #ALDIFinds’ syndrome,’” wrote @aldiusa. “It’s a legit emergency.”
To prepare the scallops, preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, remove the packaging, and line up the bacon-wrapped seafood on your favorite baking tray. After 25 to 30 minutes of cooking in the oven, they should be good to go — just make sure to flip them halfway through. You can also use toothpicks so your guests can add some to their plate without worrying about greasy fingers.
You can find a five-ounce box in the frozen section of Aldi for $6.99. The box only serves two, though, so you may want to pick up a couple. Seafood can get pretty pricey, so you truly can’t beat a deal like this one.
