Mashed potatoes were one of my absolute favorite foods growing up. Donuts were a close second, but that’s another story! Creamy homemade mashed potatoes, perfectly seasoned, thinned a bit with whole milk and dripping with butter. I never realized just how much time my mom spent baking, mashing and seasoning the potatoes, and it makes me appreciate them even more. It also makes me appreciate Instant Pot potato recipes even more too!

Super Bowl is coming! And with it, the most important part – the food, of course.
I’m not a huge football fan, but I do love food. When ALDI asked me to create a recipe that would be perfect for Super Bowl parties, Buffalo Chicken popped into my mind.
I love using the slow cooker, and that works great for cooking the chicken and keeping it hot during the party. Grab a second slow cooker for the baked potatoes, if you’ve got one handy.
Using small sized potatoes keeps this dish appetizer sized. That’s great for parties, because you’ll still have plenty of room to try all the other foods being served.
But this recipe also makes a great weeknight dinner. Use large, baking potatoes. Serve it with a big green salad and roasted broccoli. It’s a great twist on a plain Tuesday night.
Here’s what you’ll need to make Buffalo Chicken Loaded Baked Potatoes. All of the ingredients can be found at ALDI, so you know you’ll get them for a good price too. [Read more…] about Buffalo Chicken Loaded Baked Potatoes – Perfect for Super Bowl
Last week I was really in the mood for Chicken Potpie. But I was also in a hurry, and I didn’t have any pie crusts on hand. It’s not hard to make pie crust, but I didn’t have the time.
What I did have was a bag of baking potatoes that needed to be used. So I decided to bake the potatoes and then make a quick chicken and vegetable topping for them. The topping is a lot like chicken potpie filling.
The result was great and it only took a few minutes of hands on prep.
Instead of adding onions to the topping, I decided to add onion slices to a few of the potatoes (leaving the picky people’s potatoes plain).
This is easy to do. If you like onions, you really should try it. Just cut the potatoes most of the way through, using the knife to pry the halves apart a little bit. Stuff onion slices and pats of butter inside. Season with salt and pepper and wrap in foil. Bake the same way you do baked potatoes – 350 degrees for about 2 hours.
Here’s what you’ll need for the chicken and vegetable topping:
