This just in: If you miss Ukrop’s White House Rolls, chocolate tarts and other products, you may be able to find them at Kroger. Say whaaaaaat? At least, that’s what I said.
Yep, it appears as if Ukrop’s is selling some of its signature bakery products under the brand name Good Meadow Homemades. This includes pies, tarts, rolls, cornbread, their Rainbow Cookies and assorted danishes and pastries. According to the website, the name comes from Ukrop family ancestry – they originally came from the then-Czechoslovakian village of Dobra Niva, which means “Good Meadow.”
Also according to the Good Meadow website, the products are available at just about every Kroger in the Roanoke and New River valleys, including Christiansburg, Blacksburg, Salem and Vinton. For a full list, go here and click on “view retailers in a larger map.”
So, Ukrop’s is baaaaaaack. Who would’ve thought? In honor of the occasion, I will share another recipe from the cookbook “Celebrating with Ukrop’s Great Food.” This one’s for Redskin Potato Casserole. It’s a cheesy, lasagna-esque layering of potato slices, ricotta cheese mixture and Swiss cheese. Click the link to see and print the recipe.
