Spinach and Artichoke Tzatziki, Aldi

Normally I would be the first to say, make the spinach and artichoke tzatziki from scratch. Since this hasn’t been a normal year, let’s make an exception and go the convenience route. Aldi has some really good ready made dips and tzatziki sauce. Our favorites are spinach and artichoke tzatziki and cucumber dill tzatziki.  When trying out new dips, you might need to buy a few too weed out the ones you like and don’t like but don’t you have to do that regardless of where you shop? We’ve served Spinach and Artichoke tzatziki sold at Aldi many times before with crackers. The Cucumber Dill Tzatziki is delicious with fish and served with gyros. I think the name brand is Park Street Deli.

My hubby and I have both recently rediscovered stuffed mushrooms and we can’t seem to get enough of them. I thought, why not stuff cremini mushrooms with our favorite dip or tzatziki? Fast, easy and inexpensive too. Two-8 oz. pkgs. of mushrooms cost $5.00, 1-1o oz. container of spinach and artichoke tzatziki was $2.49. I had the panko bread crumbs, black pepper Parmesan cheese and sunflower oil from a previous batch of stuffed mushrooms. For under $10.00 we were able to enjoy a delicious first course.

Portobello Mushroom Caps

The next mushroom I’m going to stuff will be the large, portobello mushroom cap. I’ve used them many times as a bun for grilled hamburgers, in place of the usual hamburger bun. The most important thing to remember when stuffing the caps is to completely remove the stem and to remove part if not all of the gills. Portobello mushroom caps make a great low carb or vegetarian option. They’re meaty, very filling and dang tasty.

Spinach and Artichoke Dip Stuffed Mushrooms

A ready made dip from Aldi is used to stuff mushroom caps and then topped with panko bread crumbs and parmesan cheese.
