Hey there! I’ve skipped a few days of blogging but here is some of what you’ve missed –
- my mom is coming tonight (yay!)
- early tomorrow morning my mom and I are setting off for Ohio for a weekend with my grandparents; we’ll be back Monday afternoon
- this afternoon I had coffee with blog reader Jessica; she is looking into Dietetics programs and I told her a little bit about my experience at BSC
- the assignment I’ve been putting off all semester – writing a business plan summary – is finally complete!
- a serious amount of chocolate was eating during the completion of the aforementioned assignment
- my baking bad luck streak is finally broken
That is a Buttered Rum Raisin Cookie and it was fabulous. I’m sharing the recipe on Monday but I’ve already eaten 10 since yesterday afternoon so I can promise that it’s a winner.
All I have to share from today is dinner, but it was definitely worth sharing.
Roasted green beans,
a small pile of shredded chicken with Stubbs bbq sauce,
and a serving of my newest creation worth sharing – Loaded Baked Potato Casserole.
Omg guys, that casserole is so flipping good! I was setting out to make a light version of Party Potatoes but I think I ended up with something even better. They are seriously like a loaded baked potato, but extra creamy and cheesy and good. And the dish isn’t too too heavy so you can have a nice big serving.
Loaded Baked Potato Casserole, serves 4
- 3 medium potatoes, roughly cut into 1-inch pieces
- 4 green onions, thinly sliced
- 3 slices cooked turkey bacon, roughly chopped
- 5 oz extra-sharp cheddar, shredded
- 1 cup 0% plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup panko-style breadcrumbs
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Farenheit. Prepare a cookie sheet and an 8 x 8 inch casserole dish with baking spray.
- Place chopped potatoes on prepared sheet and season with salt. Bake 40 minutes. Place roasted potatoes in a large mixing bowl.
- Set aside approximately 1 Tbsp each bacon, cheese, and green onions.
- Add Greek yogurt and remaining bacon, cheese, and green onions to the potatoes. Stir to combine.
- Pour potatoes into the prepared casserole dish. Top evenly with panko breadcrumbs and reserved bacon, cheese, and green onions.
- Bake for 20 minutes.
