 There are great recipes at the end of each chapter.  The Sausage and Cheddar Potatoes grabbed my attention.  It was quick, easy and a big hit with the family. 
*Sausage & Cheddar Potatoes
5 cups diced potatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoon green onions, chopped
2 Tablespoons cooked bacon bits
1 pound smoked sausage or kielbasa, sliced
1  cup shredded cheddar cheese
Layer two pieces of tinfoil about 18 inches long each criss cross over each other. Place potatoes in the middle of the top layer of foil.  Cover with the remained ingredients in the order given. 
  Wrap first layer and tightly seal. 
Bring the other layer over top and tightly seal again.
You could freeze at this point if you want.  Otherwise
bake ate 375 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
*I adapted it just a bit.
used: 1/2 cup diced onions
1 pound bacon cooked and chopped
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese
1/2 cup lemon lime soda (I used diet)

  1. The potatoes sound good Tiffanee and that looks like a nice book:@)

  2. Oh my gosh.... yummy! Those look so good. I really need to go eat my breakfast before I come to visit your blog.

  3. Another great winter comfort food recipe, something us northerners need during those looooong, cold, dark months!

  4. I absolutely agree. Dinner time is so important for families. Way too many people don't sit down together as a family anymore and it's such a shame.

    Your meal looks (and sounds) mouth watering!!!

  5. That looks so delicious and easy. The book looks really good as well!
