So a lot of my fellow homeschool moms like to pass around recipes and surprise their families with some mmm, mmm good meals. Me, I'm more of a dollar menu kind of gal, lol...actually I love to cook, but health issues usually prevent it. So when I do cook up a big meal I like to go all out. Here are some of my favorite recipes for you to try on your family this month. Let me know how it turns out!
Fully loaded potato casserole...loaded with yummy goodness (and tons of fat and calories...but it's so worth it):
8 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
1/2 cup cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (optional)
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
8 slices bacon, cooked, chopped, divided
1/2 bunch green onions, sliced
Place potatoes in saucepan, and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over med-high heat. Cook until tender, then drain well.
Preheat oven to 375° degrees F.
Transfer potatoes back to the saucepan. Masher with a potato masher until almost smooth. Add cream cheese, sour cream, butter, milk, salt and pepper. Continue mashing until smooth. Stir in 1 cup of the cheese and half the bacon. Spoon mixture evenly into a lightly oiled 3-quart casserole dish. Use a spatula or fork to make an irregular surface
Bake for 20 minutes. Top with remaining cheese, bacon and green onions. Bake for 5 more minutes to melt cheese. Serve immediately.
Easy Yeast Rolls (can't have a meal without yeast rolls):
1 pack yeast

Do you have any favorite recipes you'd like to share? I'm hoping to make this a monthly post...recipe swapping. Perhaps by the end of summer we can have an awesome recipe scrapbook put together in time for the holidays, so get a notepad and pencil and start copying down your favorites!
