Potato Casseroles


Potatoes are among the most versatile of all the vegetables. They can be boiled, mashed, fried, roasted, baked, French-fried and used in a variety of casseroles. Potatoes can easily be used to make hearty side dishes as I demonstrated in the following hubs:

Baked Ham and Scalloped Potatoes

Salmon Patties with Cheesy Potatoes


They can also be combined with various meats to make complete and hearty one-dish meals. You can combine them with ham, ground beef, hot dogs or a large variety of other sausages. They can be baked in a béchamel sauce, a tomato sauce or even in leftover or freshly made gravy. They combine well with other vegetables like peppers, onions, broccoli, asparagus, carrots or cabbage. You can even add a blend of spices and serve them as a curry.


The first casserole contains alternate layers of sliced potatoes, ground beef and boiled eggs in a cream of mushroom soup sauce and topped with grated Swiss cheese. The second one alternates red skin potatoes with sausage slices, onions, green peppers and mozzarella cheese in a seasoned tomato sauce.

      Potatoes are a weekly staple for feeding my family of seven so I'm always looking for more ways to cook 'em. I'm putting this one in the rotation. Thanks!
