Gooseberry Patch blessed us with another book, 101 Cozy Casseroles, and this time I decided to do the review! That’s right. I sneaked this away from Rachel who had done the past three reviews. I couldn’t help myself, I saw bacon.
After musing over the recipe book for an awfully long time with my tot (who really loves to say casserole), we decided on two recipes: The Fabulous Baked Potato Casserole and the Scalloped Potatoes (which also has bacon!). Finally my tot decided we were doing the Baked Potato because he likes to say casserole and it had the word Casserole in it. Yes, we have serious skills of deduction!
Here we gathered up our materials.
- Potatoes – Check
- Bacon – Check
- The Other Important Things – Check
Of course I had to do all the peeling. Judah had some excuse about being 3 and unable to use sharp utensils so he just kind of danced around singing some made up song while I had to do all the work.
Did I mention Bacon?????
Mixing up all the ingredients was fun! We have Bacon, Mayonnaise, Sour Cream and Cheese; all the good stuff!
And yes I was also secretly checking out what was going on on Facebook. Ssshhh..
Now it was time to put it in the oven. Thankfully it only takes 20 minutes to cook because I was getting really hungry and Judah wouldn’t stop saying Casserole.
This beautiful dish came out in 20 minutes, ready to go on the table. It’s supposed to be a side-dish but I kind of cheated and just ate it by itself.
I am completely sold on 101 Cozy Casseroles for the rest of my life! I’m going to make those Scalloped Potatoes next because I bought 10lbs of potatoes just to make some of these delicious recipes! Some other recipes in the book are:
- Zucchini Boats
- Easy Cheesy Ratatouille
- Taco Filled Pasta Shells
- Sloppy Joe Casserole
- Potato Puff Casserole
- Easy Chicken Pot Pie
This is one of the better cookbooks I own and I have cookbooks dating back to the 50s. The recipes are simple, mostly using ingredients already in our cupboards and really warm and hearty; like home.
Purchase: You can purchase 101 Cozy Casseroles on Amazon for $13.45. They also have a recipe sneak peek in there for Quick Beefy Bean & Biscuit Make!
