But the weather has turned colder, so the yearning for comfort food kicked in.
I turned to one of my favorites.
Salmon Potato Cheddar Pie.
I really should call it Cheddar Salmon Cheddar Potato Cheddar Pie.
I'm guessing you figured out the key ingredient. :)
The recipe is one of my creations and it's really simple.
First I boiled potatoes and baked the salmon filets. (The amount of each would vary according to your preferences. I definitely err on the side of potatoes.)
Now comes the fun part.
A layer of shredded cheddar, a layer of potatoes.
I added in some sweet onion to this layer. It gives it a nice bite.
I crumbled the salmon on top.
More cheese and potatoes.
|I used the Kraft Triple Cheddar shredded cheese.|
Place the crust on top. Then, you guessed it - sprinkle more cheese over the crust. The first time I did this it was because I only had some broken pieces of crust left over and I was trying to fill it up. It was so delicious that it became an official step in the recipe.
Heat for about half an hour or until everything is heated through and the cheese is nice and melty. I took Fenway for a walk during this part and it was the exact right amount of time.
My husband is not a fan of salmon so often if I'm making chicken pot pie for him, I'll whip up one of these and then I have lunches for a week.
