Cream Cheese Potato Bake
« on: March 23, 2020, 10:52:23 PM »
I don't see why this whole thing can't be done in a Dutch Oven. No need to dirty
a separate baking dish. Since there are only two of us here, I cut this recipe in half,
and left the cooking times the same. I thought it was pretty good and will be making
it again.

Recipe is from "The Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese Cookbook" By Kraft, Inc., 1981

Potato Bake

A casserole that resembles scalloped potatoes. Cream cheese makes the difference

2 bacon slices, chopped      1 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped onion         1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped green pepper      1/8 teaspoon pepper
1) 8 oz package Philadelphia cream   4 cups thinly sliced potatoes
    cheese, cubed for faster melting

Fry bacon until crisp, remove from skillet, Drain fat, reserving 1 Tablespoon.
Saute' onion and green pepper in fat. Add cream cheese, milk, salt & pepper.
Stir over low heat until cheese is melted. Add potatoes , mix lightly and spoon into
6 x 10 baking dish: sprinkle with bacon. Bake at 350 for 50 to 55 minutes or until
potatoes are tender. Makes 6 servings.

I have been adhering to a low-carbohydrate/high-protein & fat diet for the past two years.....lost 110 pounds, so far. :banana:

My question: How do you think this recipe would be if I left out the potatoes? :shrug: :lol:

If I read that right Wolfy, your diet restricts carbohydrates but high protein and fat are Okay. If that's the case, substitute 2 pounds of bacon for the potatoes and 1/2 a pound of butter for the cream cheese. And follow up with a bowl of cracklins.

Wolfy looks good.  But he might cheat a little on his diet...
huh?
