Cheesy Potato Casserole

Rating: 3 stars 99
This potato gratin is a classic comfort food. The thinly-sliced, shingled potatoes are meltingly tender, and while there’s certainly plenty of rich and creamy cheese sauce, it’s not so much that it drowns the potatoes. Uncovering the casserole for the final 30 minutes of baking yields a crunchy, cheesy, salty top layer that’s incredibly addictive. Using two types of cheese is also key to this dish: the sharp Cheddar cheese compliments the saltiness of the Parmesan. Serve this casserole as a holiday side dish, or enjoy some with dinner tonight, and eat leftovers for breakfast, topped with a fried egg.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Rating: 3.5 stars 100
If there were an award for the most magical kitchen appliance, the slow cooker would win hands down. For this intensely flavorful soup, all you have to do is combine the main ingredients, turn it on, and voila! Taco soup. Tongs will give extra stability when you pull the hot chicken out of the soup. Once they’re on the cutting board, switch to two forks to shred into bite-sized pieces. If you don’t have black beans on hand, pinto would work well. When you’re ready to serve, top each bowl with cheese, sour cream, cilantro, and—if you really want to go wild—tortilla chips.

How To Make a Classic Amaretto Sour
Rating: Unrated 322
We’ve all been there: You buy a large quantity of an ingredient for one recipe, and then you’re stuck not knowing what to do with the rest of it. A common culprit? Amaretto liqueur, which is often used in almond-flavored butter cookies. But after you’ve added one tablespoon to the batter, you’re left with a bottle full of almond-flavored liqueur. Well, now’s the time to try your hand at a new cocktail: a deliciously refreshing Amaretto sour. The “sour” element comes from two types of citrus, freshly-squeezed lemon juice and a slice of orange. Garnish with a cherry for a pretty presentation.Watch the video above to find out how to make an Amaretto sour, and read on for the easy recipe instructions and five ingredients.

Potato Tot Breakfast Casserole
Rating: 4 stars 29

This comfort food casserole is breakfast food deluxe. You’ve got the normal suspects, like sausage, eggs, cheese, and potatoes. But wait, they aren’t just any old potatoes like hashbrowns or home fries. They’re potato tots! For heat-lovers, go with spicy sausage, or for something more family-friendly, a mild breakfast sausage. It’s true that this is pretty cheesy, rich, and filling, so if you want to lighten it up, serve with a side salad. Prep tip: To combine eggs quickly with a whisk, poke each yolk with the whisk so it mixes faster with the whites.
