2. In 2-quart saucepan, heat water, half-and-half and 1/4 cup butter to boiling; remove from heat. Stir in both pouches of potatoes (and seasoning) just until moistened. Let stand about 1 minute or until liquid is absorbed. Beat with fork until smooth.
3. Spoon 1 1/3 cups of the potatoes into casserole; top with half of the onion mixture and 3/4 cup of the cheese. Spoon another 1 1/3 cups potatoes over cheese; carefully spread to cover. Sprinkle evenly with remaining onion mixture. Top with remaining potatoes; carefully spread to cover. Sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup cheese.
4. Bake uncovered about 30 minutes or until hot.
2. In 5-quart Dutch oven, mix remaining onions, the broccoli, cream cheese, bell pepper and red pepper sauce. Cover; cook over medium-low heat about 20 minutes, stirring once halfway through cooking, until sauce chips are melted. Transfer to ungreased 2- to 3-quart casserole.
3. Bake uncovered 20 to 25 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Sprinkle reserved onions around outer edge of casserole; bake 5 minutes longer.
Do you have any family recipes or traditions that you would like to share? If so I would love to hear from you. If you have a blog make a post and link it back at the bottom. If not please leave it in the comment section. I am going to add something new each Wednesday until Thanksgiving. It will be fun to see everyone ideas and recipes too.
Making Lemonade is really easy here is my recipe -
Our Christmas Tree Topper!
Its a Christmas Ball that my daughter Melissa made by folding 20 circles into triangles and stapling them together. She was so proud of it that she asked if we could use it as a tree topper. I of course said yes! So we didn’t unpack the Angel we have always used. Instead she put her home made Tree Topper on with a smile on her face!
You can also take simple things around your home and turn them into ornaments! Let your children help too! This is just a key chain with pictures in them. I let the kids put Chrismas Ribbon through it and we hung it on the tree! It used to be my key chain! Here is a picture of the finished ornament right off of our Christmas Tree! Years from now the children will look back at this and and remember making it!
