Good recipes to share with friends.
This dish was one of my favourites when I was growing up and it has always been a family staple on the holiday dinner table. These cheesy potatoes are also ridiculously easy to make. They can be pulled together in less than 10 minutes, popped in the oven for 45 and then they’re ready to be served, just like that.
The recipe was inherited from a friend of my parents named Heather, hence the name. It wasn’t called “Heather’s Cheesy Potatoes” before it reached my family’s kitchen, but that is always the name I give the dish even when I find it on other people’s tables. Apparently, I’m not in the only family who’s passed this recipe on from generation to generation!
Since I always have cheesy potatoes around the holidays, it seems fitting to share a Christmas song. I love unusual Christmas songs, especially alternative takes on the standards. She & Him do a terrific job with a reversed-role version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”, and the video is pleasingly funny to boot:
Now, onto the warmth:
