Saving during the holidays can seem almost impossible, so when we find a good deal we have to share them. We’re already thankful for Aldi for halving prices this Thanksgiving and this year’s holiday food lineup with loads of Aldi Finds under $10. Now, we have another reason to be grateful for our favorite grocery store. One of Aldi's fan-favorite frozen casseroles is back for a limited time to help you feed hungry holidays guests without spending too much time or money.

Aldi Season’s Choice Sweet Potato Casserole Is Back

Each year, Aldi releases its popular Sweet Potato Casserole with Praline Topping from its Season’s Choice brand, and right now it’s back on shelves just in time for the holiday season.

This frozen dish is a no-brainer for the holidays. It serves up to five and comes premade, so all you need to do is heat and serve. You can pop it in the oven to bake for a little over an hour or heat it in the microwave in under 15 minutes. The casserole features a sweet potato base and praline topping made of pecans and oats, so it has the perfect balance of creamy and crunchy, savory and sweet.

Last year, Instagram user @aldiforpresident posted about the sweet potato casserole, which was going for $5 at the time, and many fans were eager to comment. One said they “bought 5” while another agreed that this casserole was perfect to “stock the freezer.” One commenter even went so far as to say that these potatoes are "literally better than homemade.”

This year, the price will be around the same, or possibly a bit higher depending on your location. We found it for the same low price of $5 in New York, but in a recent Reddit thread, one user picked it up at their local Aldi in Illinois for just $3.79.

In another Reddit thread, fans have been anxiously awaiting the return of the sweet potato casserole since October. One fan chimed in, saying they “buy a few every year, they are SOOO delicious,” and another writing, “I literally cannot wait until they stock these.”

Well now the wait is finally over, so if you see this casserole at your local Aldi store, you better act fast. It’s a popular item, and once it’s gone, you probably won’t see it until next fall.

If you’re looking for other quick and easy holiday food finds at Aldi that won’t break the bank, there’s plenty to choose from right now. Personally, we love the instant Brioche Stuffing Mix Garlic and Rosemary flavor, which is only $1.79 per box, and the ready-to-bake Pillsbury holiday sugar cookies that cost just $3.49 and can complete any holiday meal in a pinch.
