Bird's Eye

The other day I received my frozen ice box of Birds Eye Chef’s packages. There were 4 different kinds:
– Lightly Sauced Primavera Vegetable Risotto
– Lightly Sauced Creamed Spinach
– Lightly Sauced Roasted Red Potatoes & Green Beans
– Lightly Sauced Mushroom & Green Bean Risotto

The one you see above it the Roasted Red Potatoes & Green Beans. I’ll be upfront and say my family and I are not usually fans of this type of frozen veggie concoction. I baked some chicken breast and mixed in with it and it was pretty good. The light cheesy sauce was nice and I did appreciate that the veggies were not soggy. The green beans really did seem fresh and not from frozen. The potatoes were still firm and not mushy. Most of the time with frozen foods similar to these the sodium is very high and this seemed much more reasonable.
