Cheesy and creamy!

>>>See all my recipes here!<<<

Cheesy Baked Potatoes - (Main Dishes, Potato)

Ingredients:

12 medium potatoes
8 ounces Philadelphia cream cheese
16 ounces sour cream
1 stick of butter
2 teaspoons garlic salt
2-3 cups shredded cheese (save 1 cup to top)

Directions:

Peel and cook the potatoes until tender. Drain the water from the potatoes and mash them. Add the cream cheese, sour cream, butter, garlic salt, and 1/2 of the shredded cheese. Mix together well. Put the potato mix into a 13x9 greased pan, and refrigerate overnight. Add the remaining shredded cheese to the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Thoughts On Cheesy Potatoes:

If you have a craving for potatoes this recipe is the one! The potatoes are so creamy and cheesy, you will love them. I grew up in the midwest and mashed potatoes were always a part of a meal. We almost always had white or brown gravy with potatoes but when I first tried cheesy baked potatoes I could eat that as a main dish. There is something about letting the potato mix set in the refrigerator overnight that makes this recipe work so well. Chilling the potato mix allows everything in the recipe to settle and absorb with the potatoes to give it a creamy taste. It is delicious!

More Information For You:

Baked potatoes in general have a very interesting history. Did you know that in the United Kingdom, a baked potato is called a "jacket potato"? They were a very popular street food and were sold to common poor people. You can find more interesting facts about the baked potato by visiting the Happy Cow.

My Thoughts For The Day:

Funny food meme a friend shared.

A friend shared this funny food meme and I had to share it with you. Have you tried cow tongue? When I was around 12 years old I tried cow tongue. My dad worked for a fence company in East Texas. He had a Hispanic coworker and we were invited to come over to eat and visit. It was a fun time and the aroma in the air of food cooking smelled wonderful. I remember being served cow tongue and at first I thought I didn't want to try it because it was a tongue. After a little convincing, I decided to taste my serving. I did like it but I haven't tried beef tongue since then. I have eaten many eggs though.

Keep on cooking!

My Thoughts For The Day:

Happy Gardens Facebook Food Meme

Here is another food meme I found on Facebook. It's a little coincidental because a friend of mine I work with brought some homemade bacon her father cooked. Honestly, some of the best foods are homemade in my opinion. The bacon had the best-smoked bacon flavor I have tasted. I am a huge bacon fan and like bacon with my bacon. I am not sure what business posted this sign but I am willing to say they serve some kind of bacon food.

Keep on cooking!
