Game Day Casserole
For some people, the Super Bowl is a major event. I'm no different. Well, I'm a little different. For me, it's all about the food. I've heard there's some kind of sportsing event happening then, too! But really, when the day gives you an opportunity to combine foods we all love, there really is something to celebrate - football fan or not:
Wedges of potatoes (skins on, skins always on) are covered in ham, bacon, onions, peppers, cheese, and eventually sour cream. It's like those loaded baked potato skins decided to stop pussy-footing around and just become a casserole, which is exactly what happened:
What I love most about this casserole is that most everything about it that takes time is wrapped up in the oven doing its work. What does that mean? It means you have time to make more goodies or mix your favorite drinks. Like I said, football or no football, there's definitely a lot to love about Super Bowl Sunday!
- 1 package (30 oz.) frozen potato wedges
- 1 c. chopped fully cooked ham
- 6 slices thick-cut bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
- 4-6 sweet mini-peppers, sliced into rings
- 1/2 c. thinly sliced green onions
- 1 c. grated cheese - choose your favorite variety
- 1/2 c. sour cream, for serving
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray 13x9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Arrange the potato wedges in the baking dish; bake for 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes are thawed and beginning to brown. Top with half each of the ham, bacon, pepper rings, and green onions. Sprinkle the cheese on top. Sprinkle with the remaining ham, bacon, and pepper rings.
Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the potatoes are tender. Top with dollops of sour cream and the remaining green onions when serving.
