I found this recipe in TOH's 2004 "Best of Country Cooking". It was submitted by Dolores Nemec. I changed a couple of things to make this more for mine and my SO's personal tastes. The cooking time includes both baked times, and the prep time includes the cooling time before slicing the top off of potatoes. Submitted on May 23, 2006.
Got this out of quick cooking years ago and it is a really easy, fast tasting meal. Tastes like a pot pie :) Also you can sub turkey for chicken and I use already cooked cubed chicken and it's great on game days..
This is a great side dish for any kind of meal! Elegant, Easy, Special Occasion or just to go with Steak, Fish or just about anything. This recipe came from my neighbor. Her father was in Love with this recipe so whenever any of us made this we just called it "Alvin's Potatoes". You can adjust to # of people and tweak with just about anything. If you want to go "really" easy - sprinkle a package of potato toppers over sour cream and pop into the oven for the full baking time. You can also adjust baking temp. & time if you want to bake along with your meat.
We had these yummy potatoes for Easter after hearing the recipe on the radio. It comes from Nigella's book "Feast: Food to Celebrate Life". We were all afraid they would be overpowering because the whole house smelled like garlic, but they were wonderful - crispy and brown with a lovely roasted garlic flavor!
The combination of orange juice with sweet potatoes is outstandingly delicious! My mother was a great cook. Her dishes always had plenty of exciting flavors. I'm passing on one of her favorites which we enjoyed.
I got this from her magazine and let me tell you that these are amazing!! They were made by a firefighting chef, Mike Wathen, where she visited in Alabama. Here are the adjustments I made: red potaotes, light sour cream, light cheddar cheese, and turkey bacon. I actually just fried up the bacon and then crumbled it. Hubby and kids were raving about how these were the best mashed potatoes they have ever had!
A great brunch or side dish idea. I would characterize this dish as elegant, easy to prepare, pleasing in flavor and CHEAP! You could expand the recipe and serve these potatoes to a bunch of guys for a SUPER BOWL or poker party. My wife really loved this version of the venerable and versatile sweet potato.
This is a simple and good recipe from bettycrocker.com. NOTE: This recipe is even better if you double the cheese and bread crumbs. Or, if you would like to cut the calories down, toss the potatoes with some seasonings (we like garlic salt and pepper), the breadcrumbs and a drizzle of olive oil, and omit the butter and cheese.
A very simple recipe without cheeses or bacon, but still quite tasty, and potentially quite lowfat. Sorry about the lack of amounts but it is a pretty loosey goosey affair. This recipe freezes well if you freeze it before the second baking and then just pop it in the oven straight from the freezer.
