Beaverton, Ore. – May 3, 2011 – Reser’s new line of fully baked side dishes are packed with cheese, flavor and convenience. Reser’s Main St. Bistro™ Baked Scalloped Potatoes, Baked Mac & Cheese and Baked Hash Brown Casserole offer a delicious short-cut to making casseroles from scratch.

“The average American family spends less than 30 minutes making dinner,” states John McCarthy, category manager. And nearly 80 percent of Americans have no idea what they’re going to have for dinner as late as 4:00 pm according to The Richards Research Group. For those caught in the “What’s for Dinner?” dilemma, Reser’s fully baked side dishes offer a tasty and easy short cut.

Why Baked is Better

What’s the secret? Each baked side dish has a light, crunchy, golden brown Top Bake ™ cheddar cheese crust that delivers home-baked taste right from the microwave. “Frozen entrees can take an hour to cook or lack that satisfying crunch of a homemade dish,” states McCarthy. “Reser’s refrigerated baked sides can be prepared in the either microwave or oven and offer a fresh, out-of-the-oven taste.”
