This may come as a surprise to you, but up until a year-ish ago I had no clue what Trader Joe’s was! It wasn’t until I needed everything but the bagel seasoning for a bagel recipe did I find this glorious store. And while our love affair has been short, I’m pretty sure it’s a love that will stand the test of time. With me loving Trader Joe’s so much, I thought it may be fun to share my 5 favorite items. These 5 items are staples in our Trader Joe’s cart and number three is on our dinner menus at least once a week!
Greg will completely disagree with me, especially after I made him eat this three nights in a row, but I LOVE this dish! Put a fried egg and some everything but the bagel seasoning on it and you have the perfect lunch or dinner!
I could probably eat this straight from the carton, but for the sake of appearances will use crackers or carrots. This dip has great flavor and surprisingly doesn’t taste like kale or Greek yogurt! It’s a great dip to replace less healthy options.
All the yummy goodness of takeout, but from a bag and made by Greg. Unlike some bagged frozen food, this chicken actually crisps up and gets a great crunch. It’s sure to satisfy any orange chicken craving you may get.
I love this stuff! I put it on eggs, on avocado toast, in tuna. It’s such a great seasoning! It also comes in handy when I make my own Greek yogurt bagels.
I’m not a huge cracker fan, but these taste so good—especially with spinach and kale dip!
Right about now you may be asking why there is no wine on the list… well friends here in Colorado not every store can sell wine and I have yet to find the store that does. But my favorite is the peach sparkling wine in the pink can!
Did I miss an amazing product? Tell me in the comments what I need to pick up next time I’m there!
