Recipes, Etc.

All of us enjoy potatoes, be it whipped, fried, casserole, etc. Here are some favorite potato recipes that Alice Michalski has shared with me.

Potatoes Ala Alice 6-8 potatoes, peeled, cubed and cooked 1/2 c. sour cream 1 cup ranch dressing 1/4 cup fried and drained crumbled bacon 2 T. parsley 1 cup shredded cheese with some extra for topping (cheese to your own liking- I used cheddar)

Cook potatoes until only tender; drain and set aside. Combine sour cream, dressing, bacon, parsley and cheese. Combine all ingredients. Toss lightly with potatoes; place in buttered 9 x 13” baking pan. Sprinkle with additional cheese. Bake 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.

Etc. — Another recipe from Alice is cook 6-8 potatoes and shred or use thawed and cooked hash brown potatoes and set aside until cool. Combine 1 cup melted butter, 1 T. garlic, 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, 1 T. Mrs. Dash, 2/3 cup chopped sauteed onion, 2 T. parsley flakes, 2 cups of sour cream, 4 cups of shredded cheese, S&P. Add the above to your cooled potatoes. Mix well. Let stand for 40 minutes or place in refrigerator overnight. Bake in 375 degree oven for 45 minutes.

Whichever recipe you choose, your potato dish will be a highlight to your entree. And as Alice said to me, “there’s nothing left after you serve.” Thank you, Alice.
