Southern Cookin' Makes You Good Lookin'

Random Rantings about Food and Such

Crack Potatoes

on 10/20/2011

Wish you could have seen the Supervisor a few minutes ago.  Ninja likes to “inspect” my work when i’m cleaning.  Dusting is one of his priorities but nothing and i mean nothing is more important to him than powder room cleanliness, to put it nicely.  In particular, the toilet bowl.  This kitteh developed a fascination with the potty after observing Persi’s fascination with the ol’ flusheroo.  She’s moved on to bigger and better things (running water in the sink) but he’s still stuck on the porcelain throne.  When i was cleaning the half-bath, there was the Super, patiently watching me wipe and scrub and waiting for the magic to happen.  Ah, flush!  Up on the rim he goes with his kitty rear-end in the air and his head way down in the bowl.  He inspected for a full minute (not sure if i passed or not.)  Wish i’d gotten a picture of it, though.  If he’d been a human, we’d all be sayin’ “By cracky!”… if you know what i mean.

Speaking of crack (how was that for one of my most loony segues yet?), here’s an easy, non-dietetic,  luscious recipe for you.  Saw it on Plain Chicken‘s website and knew it just had to be good.  It is!  One of those recipes that, after you’ve had a helping, you end up needing just a spoonful more.  Well, not THAT small a spoonful.  Yeah, that’s good.  Thank you.

Crack Potatoes

2–16 oz containers sour cream

2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

2–3 oz. packages of real bacon bits (not the fake-o Baco’s)

2 packages of Ranch dip mix

1 large (28–30 oz) bag of frozen, shredded hash browns

Combine first four ingredients.  Mix in hash browns.  Spread in a 9 x 13″ pan that’s been lightly greased.

Bake at 400 degrees for 45–60 minutes.
