Parmesan Potato Rounds.

After yesterday's post, I was looking for another recipe to make for dinner. I skimmed through the same cookbook to find another recipe. At the time, I was looking for meatless, since I had used all my chicken the day before and I had no beef thawed. I wasn't keen on any of the veggie mains, but this side talked to me, so I decided to go for it.

Parmesan Potato Rounds.

4 medium red potatoes, thinly sliced.
1 small onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings.
3 Tbsp butter, melted.
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese.
1/34 tsp salt.
1/8 tsp pepper.
1/8 tsp garlic powder.

Place half of the potatoes in  greased 2 quart baking dish. Layer with onions and remaining potatoes. Drizzle with butter. Sprinkle with cheese, pepper, salt and garlic powder. Bake uncovered at 425 F for 20 to 30 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.

This turned out much better than the chicken recipe from the day before. So well, in fact, that I am making another recipe from the book fro today's dinner. I baked them at only 400 F, because my oven tends to run hot, and I found some stir fry pork chop bits in my freezer to go with it. I just drizzled them in some spicy Thai sauce and baked it alongside the potatoes.

These are absolutely delicious! The best thing is that it can easily be expanded. I found them a bit greasy from the butter (i used Becel), but otherwise great! This would make a great potluck recipe to, it reheated very nicely.

The week is almost over, this weekend is Thanksgiving here. My Mom has asked me to make pumpkin pie and stuffing. We usually use the store bought stuffing, but this year we seem to have a few more people who prefer home made, so i am going to give it a go! I am even thinking of making the bread! Although, when I was at the store for ingredients for today's meal, I saw a loaf of 'turkey stuffing' bread, it was a loaf of pre-spiced bread! I have never seen that before.

Hope everyone is having a great week!
