Links to Freezer Day Recipes

I am one of those a little of this, a little of that “chefs”, so I have a hard time following recipes.  That is why I DONT bake anything without the help of a Betty Crocker box.  Baking is too precise…I dont remember the last time I used a measuring cup.  So I followed this same practice when making all of my freezer day items, but here are the recipes that I used for inspiration.

Link to Sausage Foil Packets  http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Potato-Sausage-Foil-Packs  I halved the recipe and only used green peppers

Link to Spinach Twice Baked Potatoes  http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/twice-baked-spinach-potatoes-10000000223775/  I had some extra sour cream so I used that instead of cream cheese

“Loaded” Mashed Potatoes

This is an easy dish that can be frozen and cooked at a later date.  The recipe is for my freezer cooking day, so the quanities are large but you can scale it down.

5 lbs Potatoes: cubed but not peeled

1/2 cup ranch dressing

1 cup sour cream or more to your taste

1/2 cup real bacon bits (not those fake crunchy kind)

1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

salt and pepper to taste

Boil potatoes until tender, drain.  Mash potatoes and remainder of ingredients.  Divided into casserole dishes or into freezer bags.

Let potatoes thaw overnight in fridge.  Transfer potatoes, if in freezer bags, into a casserole dish and bake for 30-45 minutes at 375 degrees.

During last 10 minutes you can sprinkle top with more cheese and bake if you would like.
