Mom was the queen of using what was on hand so I learned to be creative with cooking early. Having gone to Costco last weekend and giving in to my hankering for fresh veggies and fruit, we had a boat load of bell peppers and baby Portabella mushrooms that needed to be used. I got to thinking that moms spam casserole, which resembles the ever popular among Mormons "Funeral Potatoes" might be mighty tasty with an modern twist. So here's a dish that's comfort food, and cheesy wonderfulness that will surely be a hit with the family.
FUNERAL POTATOES SUPREME
1 c. diced onion
1 c. chopped baby portabella mushrooms
2 c. diced bell peppers, any color
8 c. cooked, diced potatoes, or frozen shredded potatoes
1/4 c. butter
1/2 c. each plain yogurt and sour cream
2 c. sharp cheddar cheese
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 teaspoon each seasoning salt and pepper
I hope you give this a try and let me know what you think!
