Two Exceptional Christmas Recipes

Updated on December 13, 2010

Cheesy Potato Casserole Holiday Recipe

I have two exceptional recipes that will be spectacular additions to your family gatherings at Christmastime this year.  One is a Cheesy Potato Casserole and the other a no bake peppermint cheesecake.  Here is the recipe for the Cheesy Potato Casserole.

Cheesy Potato Casserole

6 Potatoes cut and cubed 

1/2 Lb cooked bacon

3/4 cube of Velveeta cheese

1/4 cup chopped onions

1 cup sour cream

salt and pepper

Boil potatoes until soft, drain

chop velveeta cheese into cubes, mix into hot cubed potatoes along with sour cream 

Add onions and crisp bacon and salt and pepper

Put into casserole dish

Bake at 350 degrees until hot through.

These are delicious and ingredients may be adjusted to taste, sometimes I add a little milk or a little of the bacon grease to make more creamy.

Peppermint No-Bake Cheesecake

Peppermint Dessert

11/2 Cups Chocholate cookie crumbs

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup butter or margerine

8 oz cream cheese

1 can(14) oz sweetened condensed milk

1 cup hard peppermint candy crushed

3 drops red food coloring

2 cups heavy cream whipped

Combine the cookie crumbs with 1/4 cup of the crushed peppermint candy, sugar and butter or margerine in a 9" springform pan to form the crust

Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese til fluffy

Add condensed milk and peppermint candy mix on high speed

Mix in Whipped cream and use spatula to fold in

Garnish with whole peppermint candies

      Wow! Everything I wanted from a ruitsc cottage B & B in the McLaren. So quiet & relaxing, magnificent outlook over the vines, great hospitality. I can not recommend Peppermint Farm Cottage more highly!

      They both sound delicious, but a picture of that Peppermint No-Bake Cheesecake would be awesome! Maybe the next time to make it, you can take a picture for us.
