...time to bring out the casserole dishes!
We just got back from a Potluck with Chuck's high school friends. It is an annual affair and I am always trying to decide what to take. Someone always brings fried chicken so I will chose corn, potato or green bean casserole. The potato and green bean casseroles are old standards, but the corn dish is a little different. It is always a hit and I thank Angela for sharing it with me.
My recipes for the old standards:
Sweet potatoes with Marshmallows ... standard fare for me to bring to our family get-together at Thanksgiving. We all congregate at my sister-in-law's home...about 20 in all. What a great tradition! At Christmas we all go our separate ways so this time with our family is special
Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows
3 or 4 medium size sweet potatoes
1 stick of butter
Sugar or Splenda to taste
Cinnamon to taste
Marshmallows for top
Peel and cut potatoes into small pieces. (This is the hardest part of this recipe...I actually get the muscles of the house to cut them up for me.) Boil until soft. Mash until all lumps are gone. (This is actually the easiest part. I use an old fashioned masher-no electricity required.) Add other ingredients to taste. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Top with marshmallows and continue baking until they are brown. Serve hot.
