Loaded Baked Potato Dip- Taste of Home Tuesday


I have to admit, I've never been a big "dip" person.   I'm trying to branch out more, and the very first recipe that I pinned out of my new Simple & Delicious cookbook was this Loaded Baked Potato Dip.   I slightly varied the ingredients- I used Mexican blend cheese, dried chives and sriracha.   So easy to put together while the waffle fries are cooking.   It would also be fantastic with a nice sturdy potato chip.  I'll definitely be making this one often.   Thanks so much to Betsy K for sharing the recipe!

This is the 125th recipe that I've reviewed from the Taste of Home family of publications.  I've been a fan since the 90s, and a Volunteer Field Editor (VFE) since 2015.    I'm so happy for the opportunity to be a part of Taste of Home Tuesday with Red Cottage Chronicles and other VFEs.    Thank you Maureen for hosting every week!

Copycat Olive Garden Fried Lasagna

On a recent trip to Olive Garden, I tried the Lasagna Fritta.   Fried pasta and cheeses, with two fantastic sauces.    Few chain restaurant dishes stick with me, but I had a hard time getting this one out of my mind.   I decided I wanted to recreate it at home, but instead of an appetizer portion, I wanted dinner size.    It's a little fidgety, but once you get an assembly line process going, it's pretty smooth.   I used pre-shredded/grated cheeses, you are more than welcome to shred your own.   I also used store bought marinara and alfredo, but it would be over-the-top fantastic with from-scratch sauces. This was a huge hit here.   While it's not something that I'd make weekly, it was a fun way to present lasagna to my picky eater, who doesn't like a lot of red sauce.  Since there are only 3 of us, I froze the remaining fried bundles in single serve portions.   They can be heated from frozen, or defrosted in the fridge overnight.    Enjoy!

Southern Fried Chicken Strips

  Sometimes I defrost something with a specific meal in mind, and then the weather completely makes me crave something else.   We had a nice sunny warm stretch of weather here in New Hampshire over the weekend.   It was easy to ignore my menu plan of a heavy, creamy chicken and pasta dish for some crispy, golden brown fried chicken. I chose this recipe , and made very minor changes- first, I used Penzey's Roasted Garlic instead of regular garlic powder.   Second, I held the salt out of the flour mixture, I prefer to salt fried foods as they come out of the oil instead.   I also omitted the parmesan cheese, it didn't need it. I don't fry often, so I'm always glad when the recipe turns out to be worth it.  Using tenderloins made for a quick fry, and the crunchy outside stayed put when you cut them with a fork.    There was just the right amount of seasoning for the guys, though I admit I'd have like to have swapped out the paprika for some cayenne pepper.   I l

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast Sandwich

I'm one of those people that preparedness makes all of the difference.  If I have easy snack and meal choices ready to go, then I can resist the call of the drive through.  I've been enjoying baked eggs for a while now, usually with sauteed peppers and onion, on top of a whole grain English muffin.  When Dunkin Donuts came out with their new Power Breakfast Sandwich I immediately thought, I can make that at home! I started with the same base baked eggs recipe that I've been using.  I do normally use whole eggs, but for this version to keep it true to the Dunkin Donuts one, I just used the whites.  I sauteed diced bell pepper and onion until they were soft, then let them cool.  I chopped up some baby spinach, discarding the stems.  I had lots of eggs on hand, so I separated them myself, but you could definitely use the store bought egg whites. I beat the egg whites, added a bit of salt and pepper, the veggies, and then poured them into a sprayed muffin top pan .  Bake
