Last Night I Got Creative - In the Kitchen!
- 2 Potatoes
- 1/4 head Cauliflower
- Green Pepper
- 2 sweet banana peppers
- 2 leeks
- 3/4 cup shredded cheese
- Oil Italian Salad Dressing
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasonings
- 1/4 teaspoon chicken seasoning (or seasoned salt)
Peel potatoes and cut in 3/4 inch cubes
Cut green peppers into thin strips
Coarsely chop cauliflower
Slice banana peppers into rounds
Slice leeks into rounds, all of the white and 1/2 the green
Divide all ingredients in two and layer in a 6 x 6 corning ware or glass dish in this order:
Potato, banana peppers, cauliflower, green pepper, leeks, spices, drizzle Italian dressing generously, and sprinkle cheese. Second layer is the same but I leave off the cheese and put it aside.
Microwave for 20 minutes, remove from microwave and sprinkle cheese on top and return it to the microwave for an additional 5 minutes.
This side dish was a real hit with my husband, he said it was a keeper and he definitely wanted to have it again, soon. :)
So what do you think of my creativity? Do you have any "off the cuff" recipes?
