Ketogenic Party Menu for the Big Game

This is a sponsored post in partnership with ALDI.

Family-friendly keto party food ideas - livingmividaloca.com

The big game is just around the corner! With the Hubster being on the keto diet I wanted to make sure that I hosted a fabulous brunch that was keto-friendly AND budget-friendly. And yes, I did it!!! In partnership with ALDI, I created an amazing brunch menu that was great for our large crowd, and also under $40.

So here’s the thing with the keto diet – it’s low carb, high protein. Oh, and did I tell you that I’m doing the vegetarian version of it too? So it had to be something that I would also be able to consume (at least a portion of it).

Cheddar Bacon dip topped with real bacon bits and veggies for dipping

I prepared the dip according to the packaging instructions, but added some real bacon bits to the top. The dip is a bit strong, so it’s best served with cauliflower and celery.

Berry salad (strawberries and blueberries) and whipped cream topping

Quarter strawberries and alternate layers between strawberries and blueberries. I also placed whipped cream topping in a stainless steel wine cooler for people to top their dessert.

Preheat over to 400 degrees.

Cut jalapeños in half and deseed. Fill with cheese mix.

Slice boiled eggs in half. Remove egg yolk.

We had a great spread, and I still had some in the kitchen to refill. Best of all – under $40!!! Of course, we had to make sure we were getting the best deal – so we did a bit of price comparisons:

    • Chicken drumsticks – ALDI ($5.00), Other ($9.21)
    • 1 pound of strawberries – ALDI ($1.45), Other ($2.99)
    • Center cut bacon – ALDI ($3.89), Other ($5.99)
    • Blueberries – ALDI ($.75), Other ($2.99)
    • Frank’s Hot Sauce – ALDI ($2.49), Other ($3.99)
    • Organic celery hearts – ALDI ($1.45), Other ($2.29)

We did it all under budget because ALDI supermarkets offers the best quality foods at the lowest possible prices, with exclusive brands that are as good, or even better, than the best known brands in the market. Shoppers can save up to 50% any day of the year, compared to what we would spend at a leading competitor.

I mean… I always feel like I’m getting a bargain when I shop at ALDI, but seeing it in black and white is eye-opening. It’s true what they say, “ALDI-exclusive brands saves you up to 50% over national brands on the things you buy the most.” We’ve been shopping at ALDI since they first came to California back in 2016.
