Grilled Three Cheese Potatoes

I originally discovered these grilled three cheese potatoes in a Taste of Home list of easy grill meals.

After briefly scanning the ingredients and directions, I knew I had to try it, and it was love at first bite.

Creamy, cheesy, bacon-y…what better elements to build a mouth-watering side-dish for any meal? 

These potatoes are delicious, and equally easy to prepare and cook. We love having them any evening we grill out.

They’re great for just our family’s dinner, or I can easily double the recipe, making a second batch, to feed a larger crowd. I’ve also found that these make a great, easy side-dish for camping meals.

Even better, use this recipe as a guideline and get creative in your kitchen, or backyard.

These potatoes have plenty of potential possibilities. Try adding broccoli. We also make, and love, a sweet potato version based off of this recipe.

Whether you decide to stick to the original, or spice your potato packet up a little, you can’t go wrong with these cheese potatoes.

Honey Garlic Chicken Kabobs

Grilling season, yes it IS a season, is my favorite time of the year. For those precious few months, I get to sit back at dinner time and take a break from cooking the family meal. Instead, my loving husband gets to slave away over the grill. It’s wonderful. So wonderful, in fact, that I’ve never bothered to learn how to operate the grill myself. I’m sure I could figure it out, but that might prove self-destructive to my seasonal dinner breaks. This recipe is incredibly simple, but the marinade gives the chicken an out-of-this-world flavor. The sun is shining, so pull out some chicken breasts, fire up that grill, and give these kabobs a try!

Cheeseburger & Tater Tot Casserole

I don’t know why, but I’ve been on a ‘cheeseburger’ kick lately. Soup, macaroni, meatloaf, and now a casserole. You name it- I’ve been making it.

I just crave that meaty, cheesy combo, and for whatever reason recently I’ve been going to new, experimental lengths to get my fix.

This cheeseburger & tater tot casserole is what evolved from a lunch for the boys on a day they were home from school that was incredibly cold, when I had pulled hamburger meat out for, you guessed it, hamburgers for lunch and then realized I had no buns or sandwich bread.

In theory I could’ve introduced them all to the square hamburger bun from the pack of Wonder bread. The kind my Mom always served us kids growing up. 

Looking back, maybe I should’ve welcomed back my old friend- but it didn’t occur to me at the time! Thankfully, because this casserole is definitely a new family favorite.

It was the perfect comfort food to warm us all up and put a smile on everyone’s face. There were no leftovers.
