Easy Butternut Squash Skillet – My New Favorite Side Dish

butternut squash skillet

 

I could eat and eat and eat this butternut squash skillet.  It is so good!

Our church had a potluck dinner before Christmas where someone brought a sweet potato dish that was out of this world.  I searched for the cook and finally found that the very talented Lisa had brought it.  She emailed me the recipe she used as inspiration.

I took the ideas and decided to use butternut squash instead of sweet potatoes.  I also made mine a one-dish recipe by using an oven proof skillet.

Here’s what you’ll need to make it:   [Read more...]

Garlic Cream Cheese Smashed Potatoes – 2 Ingredients!

I’ve made these potatoes twice now.  They are so simple, but they taste like you’ve really put in a lot of effort.  I love a good cheat!

This is more method than recipe, but I’ll add it in Ziplist below.  I’ve made this with about 1 lb. of potatoes and half a container of Philly Cooking Creme.  I thought that was a perfect amount of creaminess.  I’ve also made it with 3 lbs. potatoes and a whole container of Cooking Creme.  I thought that was a little dry, but Jim liked it better that way.

So, do what suits you and your family.  If you want to up the creaminess, but don’t want to use more cream cheese just add a splash of milk.

Loaded Cheesy Potato Casserole

The credit for this recipe goes entirely to my sister.  She knows how to kick things up a notch or three.

This variation on Hashbrown Casserole includes peppers, bacon, extra sour cream and french fried onions on top.  It may not win any nutrition awards, but I guarantee if you take it to a potluck your dish will come home empty.

Here’s what you’ll need (add a container of french fried onion topping that didn’t make it into the photo):   [Read more...]

Skillet Apple Crisp – Done in 20 Minutes!

We were driving home from church on Sunday and I was thinking about the egg and ham sandwiches I’d planned to make when I realized that Apple Crisp would be an excellent side dish.

I know Apple Crisp is considered a dessert, but if you eat it with your meal instead of after, it’s a side dish.  A sweet, cinnamon spiced side dish.

The only problem is that Apple Crisp takes a while to bake.  But you can speed the whole process up by cooking the apples on the stove top.   [Read more...]

Honey Glazed Carrots in the Slow Cooker

These may be the best carrots I’ve ever eaten.  They were perfectly cooked in the slow cooker and the butter and honey glaze made them taste scrumptious.

I love the idea of these as a Thanksgiving side dish.  They can be cleaned and cut the day before.  Then it’s just a matter of popping them in the slow cooker and turning it on.

I made 1 pound of carrots and it fed 5-6 people.  It would be easy to double or even triple the amount.

Here’s what you’ll need:  [Read more...]

Roasted Beets

True confession – Until very recently, I had never so much as touched a beet, much less bought, cooked or eaten one.

Well, that’s not entirely true.  I used to work at a cafeteria as the “veg girl” (great title, huh?) and I served Harvard Beets.  They smell funny.  And have that thick, purple sauce.

But roasted beets are an entirely different veggie.  [Read more...]
