Here's a great scalloped potato recipe that's so easy and absolutely delicious. The leftovers are just as good, maybe even better, the next day. This is one of my favorite and most prepared recipes, from my 1971 Florence Junior Welfare League cookbook.
My family loves this and I make it on regular rotation, it's so easy to make just mix everything in one large bowl then bake, you may prepare the complete casserole and refrigerate until ready to bake, which makes this a perfect potluck dish! --- I have even made this using frozen french fries that I cut up into small pieces when I had no hash browns on hand and can also be made using cooked cubed potatoes --- cream of chicken soup may be used in place of mushroom soup, you may even throw in some chopped cooked ham or chicken also, I most always increase this by using two cans of soup, 1-1/2 cups sour cream and using half a 5-pound bag of hash browns --- you will love this! :)
To save some time cook the green beans ahead, place in a zippered plastic bag and refrigerate until ready to use. Make certain to pat the green beans dry using a paper towel before sautéing them. If you like spicy like my family does add in 1-2 teaspoons dried chili flakes when sautéing the garlic. Just to let you know, I tried this recipe using Green Giant brand frozen whole beans and it was not as successful as using the fresh beans. Prep time does not include boiling the beans. This is a really great recipe for fresh summer green beans!
These are FANTASTIC! This recipe was revised from an old family favorite! My southern roots come through on this one! Either way the beans end up melting in your mouth and the cooked bacon adds more flavor! REALLY tasty! Good for cookouts or to compliment any meal!
This is an awesome low-carb version of loaded baked potatoes, and tastes far better than any version of mock potatoes that I have tried. In fact, this dish is soooo good, you will not believe it! I do not remember where I got this recipe, but it is a fabulous side to any low-carb meal. You will be pleased, I promise! Yum! Yum!
One of my most popular vegetarian recipes at "Auberge de la Fontaine" and also great served as a starter too. There is something very theraputic about making this dish - choosing the plump red peppers & fresh fennel bulbs - then selecting a fine Chevre - goat's cheese! It is delicious served warm or at room temperature with the garlicky Balsamic vinegar & olive oil dressing they are roasted in, drizzled over the top. Mop up the juices with crusty fresh French bread and serve with a simple tossed salad. These also make a very colourful accompaniment for most main courses.
A traditional Greek vegetarian dish. Delicious and easy. Great to do when you have a bumper crop of zucchini on hand. Olive oil adds a great flavour element to the dish, and also adds extra calories as Briami is considered a 'main dish' here in Greece. If you choose to serve it as a side, you can cut back some on the olive oil. The servings specified are considering it as a vegetarian main dish. If you're having it as a side, either cut back, or plan on getting more servings out of it.
Since I'm from Tennessee and since I love green tomatoes that's how the recipe got it's name. If you want to change the amounts of the seasonings, go right ahead. When turning over, use a pancake turner so coating won't come off. Submitted to "ZAAR" on August 5th, 2007.
My sister-in-law served this at a family function and it's been a hit ever since. No Cheese Whiz, just real cheddar cheese. Delicious, and kid-friendly. My now-grown son would request this when he came home from college. This recipe is very adaptable as well - add crushed Ritz crackers or panko crumbs on top during the last 5 minutes of cooking for a crunchy topping. Add bacon bits to the mixture for some extra flavor, or add a couple teaspoons of hot sauce for some heat. I also have used brown rice successfully with this recipe, and frozen broccoli cuts instead of chopped.
This is a rich, sumptuous side dish that I whipped up once on a whim when I was on a low-carb diet. Bien sur, these are decadent enough to conjure up visions of Louis XIV's elaborate feasts at Versailles. Eating these was blissful ecstasy - you'll feel like a head of state (as long as you don't think about the fat content or the expense of truffle oil!). I hope that you'll agree that this recipe is sure to impress monarchs accustomed to living in the lap of luxury. Bon appetit!
This a German recipe that I adapted from Schoener Essen magazine, directly from the German. This three bean salad is served slightly warm and calls for fresh from the garden beans rather than canned. It is a nice change of pace if you enjoy 3-bean salads and want to try something new. Simply click on the "convert recipe to US" to swtich from metric to US measurements. Enjoy!
This is a recipe I got in epicurious. It is one of those 'perfect' things you so rarely come across - nothing can be improved upon. Epicurious says it feeds 10. My husband and I say 'HA!!!' (it sometimes never makes it to the table and is eaten directly out of the pan).
