There are SO many fun food memes on Tuesdays! Check out Tasty Tuesday @ Balancing Beauty and Bedlam, Tuesdays at the Table @ All the Small Stuff, and Tempt My Tummy Tuesday @ Blessed with Grace. I'm linking up to all three today. I could probably spend a couple of hours browsing through all the yummy recipes!
I'm sharing a recipe here that is currently cooking away in my kitchen. It's a family favorite, and so easy! We'll be having ours tonight with this new-to-us recipe for Delicious Drumsticks and English peas. This is a pretty frugal meal, too-- I got the drumsticks on clearance for $1.24 (package of 6), the salad dressing on sale for $1/ bottle (won't use the whole bottle), and the other ingredients are all pantry staples. I'm not good at tracking those exact costs, but all together, I think this meal will come in well under $5 to feed the four of us.
4-6 baking potatoes, sliced
1 large onion, diced
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 small bottle ranch salad dressing
Place potatoes and onion slices in a large pot, cover with water, and boil until tender. Drain water. In a round glass casserole dish layer about half of the potatoes/onions, cover with a thin layer of ranch dressing, then a layer of cheese. Repeat layers, ending with cheese. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Sometimes I also garnish the top with dried chives.
I am attempting to post daily in January for NaBloPoMo's theme of "Best".
