Bury Them Deep: Funeral Potatoes
I've been having fun making up menus for each day of the week, something I've never had time to do consistently in the past. It is a challenge because both Mr. DOA and I are are picky picky picky.
One thing I thought would always be an instant win would be any variation on potatoes. We both love them.
Today's menu was simple: Ham, Cheesy Potatoes and Corn. I didn't realize till too late in the day the recipe I had for Cheesy Potatoes was meant for a nice 8 hours in the Crock Pot. I began combing the web for a quicker alternative and came across the term "Funeral Potatoes". Apparently next time you're being served from a funeral food line, you should keep a sharp eye out for these crowd pleasers.
I looked at a few recipes, checked my ingredients and went for this recipe from Our Best Bites.
Mine looked just like theirs (this is theirs, mine is in the trash):
Mr. DOA ate two helpings but he requested that it never appear again. I liked them somewhat but the sour cream oddly enough seemed overpowering as a flavor in the center of the potatoes. Onward we go. I only have one other recipe in this week's plan which Mr. DOA could reject (there were two last week ::sob::), he has had the rest.
