Cheesy Taters

This is a yummy comfort food recipe from a cookbook I reviewed some years ago, The Meatloaf Bakery Cookbook. It was written by Cynthia Kallile, founder of a bakery in Chicago that specialized in making meatloaf in creative ways (meatloaf cupcakes, little loafies, even meatloaf pastries!). I had tried this Cheesy Taters recipe from the book when I did my review and they were really good! I probably should have made a meatloaf recipe, but I was just in the mood for potatoes at the time, and these Cheesy Taters were calling my name! 🙂

And then some mushrooms, onion, cheese, and chopped turkey are added into the mix to create a delicious meal that bakes up in just over a half hour!

Easy Cheesy Lasagna

I first found the original version of this recipe years ago in a Real Simple magazine. Not only is it super easy, it’s super cheesy…and a great way to make lasagna when you don’t have a lot of time! It’s actually made with frozen cheese ravioli instead of lasagna noodles. And there’s some chopped spinach in it, too. I use a little less ravioli and a little more Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese than the original recipe calls for, since I’m such a cheese-lover—I love all that extra cheesiness! 🙂
