Creamy Recovery Potatoes
My husband had minor surgery yesterday. I didn't think, he would be particularly hungry and asked what he wanted, for dinner. I was expecting him to say, " soup or salad" but no, he chose a creamy potato dish. I asked what that meant to him.
"You know," he said, "something cheesy and creamy - soft."
"Will you leave it up to me?" I asked. He, of course agreed because that is what he does, when it comes to food.
I put together comfort food even though I did not mash the potatoes. Yep, mashed potatoes are the ultimate in comfort food. For a change, I left out the onions and only added sour cream to the wedged potatoes. I topped this with a Mexican cheese combination and it was delicious.
Hubby loved it and I am going to keep this in mind for grumpy or under-the-weather days.
3 large potatoes
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup Mexican cheese mixture (shredded)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Boil water in a 2 quart pot.
Peel and chunk potatoes.
Drop into boiling water. Lower heat and cook for 15 minutes until cooked through.
Spray a baking dish with cooking oil (I use olive) and place potatoes in dish. Add sour cream and gently mix together.
Top with shredded cheese.
Bake covered for 15 - 20 minutes until heated through.
Removed cover (aluminum foil) and cook for another five minutes. I chose not to brown mine but if you prefer it, that way, leave the casserole in, a few more minutes until golden.
If you want to feel good, try this and be happy.
|Mexican cheese is made up of four cheese which is why you see yellow and white.|
