Cheesy Potato Casserole with Ore-Ida® Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes

This post brought to you by Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine.

Now that spring is here, Easter is not very far away. I can’t wait to get prepared for easter brunch with the family! Brunch is not something that we get to enjoy very often, so I jump at my chances when they pop up. Since my cravings can’t wait until a brunch opportunity pops up, it doesn’t stop me from making my own ‘brunch’ dishes for my family at home. Since having a child, I always make Sunday breakfast complete with eggs, sausage, hash browns with the works.

A really good brunch dish is this Cheesy Potato Casserole recipe that’s made with Ore-Ida® Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes. I decided to try it when I discovered it on the Walmart website. Who knew Walmart.com was a good resource for easy recipes to prepare?

With so many recipes to choose from, I decided to try the Cheesy Potato Casserole, and it turned out excellent! Not only was it delicious, but it was also easy to prepare so you don’t have to be a kitchen ninja to do this right.

With a greased pan and lots of love, I made my own best version of this dish. As you can see, it goes really well with eggs and toast! The Cheesy Potato Casserole got the most requests for second helpings from both JP and his daddy.. That’s when I know a recipe is a keeper – no leftovers!

Be sure to give it a try for your easter brunches – you won’t be disapointed!

If you ever wanted to have quick, flaky pastries in under 20 minutes – here’s how! This has got to be the simplest of baking ideas I’ve ever had, and boy is it amazing.  I came across these little Milky Way® bites the last time I was shopping at Walmart, so I bought them thinking they would make a nice ‘I love you’ treat in JP’s lunch.

I’ve been craving a good flaky pastry for a while now, so I thought I’d use my frozen pasty cups and fill them with the Milky Way® bites and bake to see how it turned out. On my first try,  I baked each bite on top of the frozen dough as shown above.. If you decide to do this, be sure to bake the cups almost completely before you pop the bites in each one or they will turn out like these. Not everything I make actually turns out right!

So I decided to give it another shot, and this time bake the dough until it was almost done, and then pressed the Milky Way® bites into each shell and continue baking for another few minutes. This way turned out wayyy better!

If there’s anything I really love, it’s an easy weeknight dinner that’s a crowd pleaser for the whole family. This week, after returning home from a long day, the last thing I felt like doing was making something elaborate. I thought this would make the perfect opportunity to break out my Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips and make some fun baskets with a side of Zesty Chili Sauce.

One of the things I noticed when I visited my local Sam’s Club to purchase my Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips was a set of these adorable red baskets. I thought they would be fun to serve up my Chicken Strips with Zesty Chili Sauce. I used some coffee filters to line it, and it worked perfectly – I love that it made a frilly edge!

So what’s this Zesty Chili Sauce all about? It’s super-simple and I made it to pair next to the cajun mustard that I made as well. All it is made of is sour cream mixed with Tone’s Chili Powder.
