The new issue The Ozarks Mountaineer Magazine has arrived! I may not be ready for winter, but the articles in here are sure to get me in the mood.
My Ozarks Cookery Column this issue (page 36 & 37) features recipes geared for large gatherings. I’m all for doing it easy, and the Bacon-Cheddar Pinwheels and Sausage & Cheese Dip definitely fit the bill! The Broccoli-Cranberry Salad makes a colorful presentation, and I’m always a sucker for Sweet Potatoes…this time in a Sweet-Sweet Potato Casserole!
There’s much more to be found in this collection of recipes, but be sure to refer to the “Guest-imate” Portions Guide (how much soup DO you need for 12 people?), so you can purchase enough ingredients for whatever size group you plan to host, and have a fun, delicious event!
As a bonus on my blog, here’s one of my favorite crowd-pleasing recipes (not found in the article – it’s a family favorite!)…
Potatoes for a Crowd
1 pkg. frozen Hashbrowns, thawed
1 – 8 oz. container sour cream
1 can cream of potato soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Parmesan cheese and/or seasoned bread crumbs for garnish
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients. Place mixture in a shallow baking pan, top with garnish if desired. Bake at 400 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve hot!
Have a wonderful family-filled winter season, and be sure to pick up the latest Ozarks Mountaineer Magazine!
