20 Minute Potatoes Au Gratin

I probably make my 20 minute Potatoes Au Gratin once a week because I usually have the ingredients on hand and they are fast and super delicious. Who doesn’t love a spoonful of cheesy, savory potatoes as a side to almost anything? And I use cheddar and monterey jack cheeses but I’ve been known to use whatever is in my cheese drawer at any given moment. By the way…

Bacon, Tomato & Cheese Stuffing

My Bacon, Tomato & Cheese Stuffing recipe has sort of evolved over time because I love to make turkey breast throughout the year and I love stuffing. I was trying to come up with a stuffing recipe that tasted more like something that I could serve during the summer with my BBQ turkey breast and cold salads.
