To Top It Off

Ever since the inception of Easy Peasy, I have cooked more than ever before. Some recipes I approached with enthusiasm, some with trepidation. I’ll let you in on a little secret I discovered….shhh, come closercloser….if the results are a little…questionable…you can disguise it with a clever topping. That’s right! A prime topping can carry a subpar body of food. For example,

• A layer of crushed Lays Potato Chips will make any casserole better and is more kid-friendly (and cheaper) than fried onion strips.

• Top vegetables with a generous sprinkle of crushed Ritz Crackers. I did this for green beans last night—delicious!

Bacon makes it better. My research of looking through food magazines confirms that 6 out of 8 “holiday” main dish/side recipes include bacon. Despite the cholesterol police, this time of year the chefs just “ham” at it! (heehee)

• More Cheese, please. Tastes “grate”(sorry, I’m apparently mentally vacating) on top of mashed potatoes, soups, bread, and more.

What are your favorite toppings?

Did Gina recognize them even though they had Ritzs on them?
