Hippity Hoppity

Hm. I think there's a holiday coming up.... sometime soon...

Could it be EASTER? My goodness, so it is.

And yes, Kelly, it's time to make lots of yummy things for Easter dinner, including stuff with pimentos:

It wouldn't be an Easter Ham-O-Rama dinner around here without two things: one being two dueling smoked ham glazes (I let John and Son handle this exclusively) and the second being Gramma's Cheesy Potatoes. This is not what I would consider health food, but it's definitely comfort food around our house.

Mom O's Cheesy Potatoes

10 cooked potatoes cooled, peeled, and cut into one inch cubes
1 medium onion chopped
1 small jar minced pimentos
dried parsley to taste
6 slices white or sourdough bread cut into one inch cubes
8 ounces Velveeta process cheese cut into one inch cubes
salt and pepper to taste

Combine above and place in a 9 x 13 baking dish.

1 cup milk
1 cup butter

Melt butter and milk in a small saucepan and pour evenly over the potato mixture. Cover pan with aluminum foil.

Bake at 325 degrees f for thirty minutes, then remove foil and bake for another thirty minutes. Serves 10 - 12

*wistful* Those are so good. I still haven't managed an edible lactose-free version. The milk and butter are easy; it's the Velveeta cheese that's hard (impossible) to substitute for. Alas.

Those potatoes are TDF, no doubt about it, I can tell just from reading the recipe. Guess it was the low-carb lifestyle that made guess the pimientos were for deviled eggs...which are good but your Cheesy Potatoes recipe blows poor ol' deviled eggs out of the Easter grass! So glad you have the energy to decorate and cook for Easter. Enjoy!
