Awesome and easy potatoes

As I have mentioned before, our Sunday School class eats lunch together once a month. For July I made an easy potato recipe that was a sure hit. In fact, I was not able to get a picture because they went so fast.

Maggie B’s Potatoes

10-12 red potatoes, boiled

Drain. You may leave the skin on or peel it off.

1/2-1 stick oleo or butter
1 pt. ranch dressing
6-8 green onions, chopped
1 lb cooked bacon, crumbled
8-12 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients and pour over diced (chunky) potatoes. Reheat at 350 degrees until the cheese melts and the Ranch dressing is warm. I used a 9×13 pan.

Everyone agreed that these were the perfect potatoes for a church potluck (or any potluck for that matter). I definitely will be making them again!

One of those go-to recipes

Our Sunday School class takes turns bringing breakfast every week. Due to our class size, I only end up having to take a turn every 2 1/2 to 3 months. I always envision myself making a new and exciting breakfast that will impress all my classmates and be the envy of those less skilled in the kitchen. But let’s get real here- I usually end up getting busy on Saturday, practically forgetting that tomorrow is my turn, and what do I do? I go to the stand-by- Easy Sausage and Hash Brown Casserole from Southern Living Busy Moms Weeknight Favorites. It is easy and quick and has been a real crowd pleaser every time I have made it. I am not sure if I should post the recipe here or not due to the evil Copyright Police (you know what I mean, Mary), so if you are interested in the recipe, I will be happy to email it to you. I do have to say that I recommend this cookbook because I have made several recipes from it and they all have passed the test so far.

Coming soon- Upside Down Pizza Casserole (also from the same SL cookbook) and Fish Tacos so please check back for more recipe reviews and menu ideas!

Photos coming soon

I know you can’t very well have a food blog if you can’t show pictures of your food. I have been out of batteries for my camera (putting of a trip to the dread Wal-mart) but last night I was able to find my rechargeable batteries. Hopefully next time I cook I will be able to show off what we made. There is no cooking as Casa de Insanity tonight as the kind ladies at church will be preparing our meal. Having Wednesday night dinner at church is a good night off for me as well as a fun time to get to visit with friends. Tomorrow night though, it is back to the stove.
