Main St. Bistro Classic Baked Sides from Reser’s Fine Foods

“Just Add Turkey”


Reser’s Main Street Bistro Baked Sides

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and soon families across the country will be sitting down to a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. My husband and I both enjoy cooking & baking for this event, but let’s face it… it can be a bit overwhelming. There’s the turkey that needs a lot of preparation and roasting time, plus salads, side dishes, desserts…the list goes on and on! Whether you enjoy cooking or don’t, you should check out the Main Street Bistro Classic Baked Sides made by Reser’s Fine Foods. You could save yourself a ton of time on your Thanksgiving dinner using these side dishes.

From Reser’s Fine Foods web page: Our refrigerated–never–frozen sides come fully baked with a golden brown cheese topping and taste fresh from the oven. Dig into these comfort food classics tonight!

Reser’s is a family owned and operated company that has been making delicious meals since 1950. Their products can be found in most local grocery stores. They offer a large variety of dinners and side dishes as well as with salads, dips, spreads and more. They are a very good tasting and inexpensive way to add to your family’s meal in a hurry.

Here’s what we received:

Available all year

  • Baked Scalloped Potatoes (very good!)
  • Baked Macaroni & Cheese (nice and cheesy…almost as good as my Grandma’s)

Limited Edition – Available for holiday season only

  • Mashed Sweet Potato Bake (Check out their recipe for sweet potato pie)
  • Baked Homestyle Stuffing (I made this in the microwave. Taste was very good but texture would be better if it were baked in the oven)
  • Baked Green Bean Casserole (Another Thanksgiving classic – YUM!)
  • Baked Spiced Apple Cranberry Bake (We thought this was good but would like to have it over vanilla ice cream or maybe in a pie crust).

You can either microwave (5-10 minutes depending on item) or bake in the oven (18-25 minutes depending on item). I tried some items in the microwave and some in the oven and although there isn’t a huge difference between the two, I think the oven does produce better results. The microwave is of course, much faster, so if time is an issue that would be your best bet. Either way you can cook them right in their own container (remove outer packaging and plastic wrap first).  Of course, you could transfer them into casserole dishes and make them look even more home made!

Baked Scalloped Potatoes Spiced Apple Cranberry BakeTo preserve the best product quality, Reser’s does not recommend freezing their refrigerated items. However, if you do freeze them they recommend that you thaw them in the refrigerator rather than at room temperature.

On the downside, these are not exactly diet-friendly items (that’s pretty normal for comfort foods).
