Taking a moment away from the decadence!
So, I have a bit of time on my hands until the next meal (late dinner) is due on the table.
I made a potato casserole for today's brunch, and even my non-potato-loving daughter liked it. So, why don't I share it with you? It takes only minutes to put together, doesn't cost much, and feeds a BUNCH of people.
Cheesy Potato Casserole
1 medium onion, minced (about 1 cup)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 bag (1 lb 14 oz) frozen shredded potatoes
1 can cream of mushroom soup*
1 cup low-fat or non-fat sour cream
3 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup french fried onions (i.e. Durkee) (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Saute onion in olive oil over medium heat until softened. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl stir together potatoes, soup, sour cream, cheese, and reserved sauted onions. Pour into a well-greased 13x9-inch baking dish. Top with french fried onions.
Bake for 70 minutes.
*instead of cream of mushroom, you could substitute cream of chicken, celery, or onion.
