Stouffer's Spinach Souffle

I have always liked Stouffer's Spinach Souffle, but then I've always liked spinach. If you're buying frozen sides, what do you like? I don't really care much for their mac and cheese, as I'd rather make my own or velvetta shells or good old Kraft, but what frozen sides from the grocery do you find palatable?

    I typically make mine but I like the McCain Cracked Black Pepper French fries. I will buy frozen veggies though but just plain frozen veggies,not the sauced ones. Being single, it's easier to keep a bag of frozen cauliflower or peas on hand than buying a head and having it go to waste.

    I like the spinach souffle, also, but try this: Partially thaw spinach, stir in a little (or a lot of) Tabasco, stuff into mushrooms, sprinkle with parmesan and bake until spinach is done. Really good! Oh, I pour a little white wine in the bottom of the pan.

    Frozen breaded okra, cajun french fries, and all kinds of other frozen veggies. That dish sounds good Mb!

    Green Giant makes 10 oz boxes of cauliflower or broccoli with cheese sauce. Nuke one, dump it on a baked tater with a salad makes a quick meal.

    Their creamed chipped beef isn't bad in a pinch. Boil it right in the bag and serve on those frozen biscuts from Pillsbury. Not home made but, it works when your lazy and by yourself. Chow Jim

    I used to love those Stoffer's soufles. . . haven't had one in years(decades) though.
    You've got to be careful not to burn the top.

    I think that Stouffers has about the best tasting frozen sides you can buy, IMHO.
    I always did like the spinach souffle and the mac n cheese, and the SOS too.
    I have mentioned the SOS on another thread, my weary mind thinks.

    Stouffers has always been a bit better than others, IMO, yet even THEIR
    quality has declined over the years. I first noticed this when they switched from their aluminum containers to the ones that you can nuke. They have also D/Ced a bunch of my old favorites.

    I CAN turn a Stouffer's French Bread Pizza into a masterpiece, though.

    My mother used to buy Stouffer's Spinach Souffle and also their corn souffle when I was a kid and I always liked them. Haven't had it in years and years. There was a Stouffer's Restaurant around the corner when I worked in Pittsburgh in the mid-70's, I used to have lunch there almost every day, it was very good.

    I love their French Bread Pizza--many have tried to duplicate it in frozen form, yet none has succeeded....I too doctor up ones that I buy...

    I really like the Stouffer's spinach souffle but I don't think I've had it in years. My Yankee upbringing will only permit me to buy it when it's at least half-off price, and then I just can't justify turning the oven on for 45 minutes for a side dish. Isn't it great what you learn from your parents.

    The Birds Eye creamed spinach is okay and it nukes just fine. I like a pinch of white pepper and a touch of grated parmesan to build out the flavor. The other frozen treat we like is their green beans with spaetzle and bacon. Nothing like real spaetzle and bacon, but for 3 minutes in the wave it's something different.

    For a mac & cheese side dish we're happy enough with Annie's (the white cheddar variety), on sale, of course. Seems a little fresher tasting than most. Of course I prepare it with milk and butter, and sometimes a shake of parm.

    Only other packaged side dishes we use are the Near East pilafs. They don't seem to be quite as salty as other rice mixes. There's an almond one we sometimes like with a piece of baked fish, and the lentil pilaf is pretty hearty with a piece of meat.

    Hello All,
    Stouffer's had a great chili, but I think they discontinued it within the last year.
    It really was good. And their French Bread Pizza is quick, easy, and good.
    Take Care,

    I like Souffers spincach souffle, also the s.o.s. is pretty good.

    But Trader Joe's has come out with a green chile enchilada with sour cream, that while being frozen is still very very good. Also T.J.'s frozen Italian Pizza's(from Italy),they also have an Allsatian type pizza thats great, and Eggplant cutlets.

    I usually like my food fresh, but when I'm in a hurry or don't feel like cooking some frozens come in handy.
