When company is coming for the winter holidays, we like to go all out. Our Baked Smashed Potato Casserole is a super change of pace from traditional mashed potatoes. Made with red potatoes and topped with a flavorful cheesy crust, this will add excitement to Thanksgiving or Christmas entertaining.

What You'll Need:
  • 6 red potatoes, cut into quarters
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons grated Asiago cheese
  • Paprika for garnish
What To Do:
  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook potatoes until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and return to pot.
     
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Sauté onion, celery, and red pepper until tender; set aside.
     
  3. Add butter and half and half to the potatoes; mash together. Add sautéed vegetables, then season mixture with salt and pepper to taste.
     
  4. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Spread remaining tablespoon of olive oil in an 8-inch square casserole dish. Spoon mashed potatoes into the dish and sprinkle with Asiago cheese and paprika. Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Banana Chocolate Swirl Cake

There's a popular new (well, maybe not so new) ingredient that so versatile and good for you, we just had to share it! It's coconut oil, and it can be used to make everything from popcorn to scrambled eggs, from sauteed chicken to baked goods. We used it to make our Banana Chocolate Swirl Cake and is it ever moist and delicious!
