All your favorite flavors from childhood mix together to make this Cheesy Broccoli and Potato Casserole. With new Betty Crocker™ Potatoes, your family will have a new favorite potato side dish perfect for the holidays.
I see so many people running around like crazy people trying to get everything together for the holidays. All I hear is, “There’s still so much left to do!” This is a stressful time of year, people! The last thing you want to worry about is getting dinner on the table. And with new Betty Crocker™ Potatoes, you don’t have to! Betty is here to save the day with new casserole side dishes that are super easy to make and even easier to use as the base of your own holiday potato recipe. There are so many flavors to choose from and each one brings a little something special to the table — but when you add in your own mix-ins, things get even better!
As someone who loves to cook, sometimes I get in a little over my head with the dishes I choose to make for holiday get-togethers. I always want to make something creative, festive and tasty, and it has to look good too! I usually make something new so I can share on the blog, of course. Since it’s usually a new recipe, there’s always the chance that whatever I make is a total and complete disaster, like the time I made coffeecake for a brunch and when I cut into it, the entire center was undercooked. It had been sitting out for so long, that putting it back in the oven did not help. I had to toss the cake, and take a few moments to cry in the corner. Betty Crocker™ Potatoes helps me put something presentable and flavorful on the table without causing any stress. The only thing you may stress over is whether or not to have seconds and thirds!
Betty Crocker™ Potatoes take no longer than a half hour to cook — the perfect shortcut to getting a delicious and hearty homemade dish on the dinner table for your family or ready to bring to one of the many holiday parties I know you have planned the rest of this month. I know what you’re thinking… You’re encouraging me to eat potatoes from…a box?!?! Yes, yes I am. Because a) these are 100% REAL potatoes — there’s nothing fake about these taters, and b) cut me some slack — I can’t be Suzy Homemaker every single day, now can I?!
The only difference between these Betty Crocker™ potatoes mixes and the potatoes you get from the produce section of your grocery store is the cook time! What’s even better about Betty Crocker™ Potatoes is that each box comes with a little packet of flavor! Now it’s just up to you to decide whether you want to stick to what’s in the box, or get a little wild and crazy with your mix-ins. I chose the latter.
It took me a while to even decide which of these yummy potatoes I wanted to experiment with. Roasted Garlic….Parmesan and Asiago…Cheesy Hashbrown… I finally ended up with the Three Cheese mix of cheddar, parmesan, and romano cheeses. Cheese and potatoes?! Uh, yes please! I wanted to make sure I incorporated a vegetable into this cheesy, carb-loaded dish. Broccoli was the first thing to come to mind. Who doesn’t love broccoli and cheese together?! This combination was a childhood favorite of mine and I haven’t had it in years. There’s no time like the holidays to reminisce and reinvent the things you loved as a kid. Cheesy Broccoli and Potato Casserole is definitely going to become a one of my go-to potato side-dish recipes.
