Hearty Meals To Keep Away The Chill (NAPSA) - What could be more comforting than arriving home on a crisp evening to a hot, hearty meal? On those chilly evenings, potatoes have always been a favorite. A new cookbook, "A Taste of Idaho," offers a variety of creative recipes that showcase the versatility of potatoes from breakfast dishes and tasty scones to main course dinners.
The delicious Southwestern Skillet Supper is filled with ground beef, onions, tomatoes, baked beans and corn, then topped with Idahoan Complete mashed potatoes. Rich in protein and carbohydrates, the meal provides a great one-two punch to combat chilly weather. Moist and flaky Potato Buttermilk Biscuits serve as the skillet supper's perfect companion.
- 1 cup Idahoan Complete mashed potatoes
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
Prepare potatoes as directed on package, set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. With pastry blender, or two knives used scissors-fashion, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in mashed potatoes and buttermilk until mixture comes together. Shape into a ball.
On lightly floured surface, knead dough 30 seconds. Pat dough into a 3/4-inch thick piece. With 1/2-inch round cookie cutter, cut out circles, (including scraps) to make 12 rounds.
Place on greased cookie sheet, about 1 inch apart. Bake in a 350 F. oven for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden and puffed. Remove to wire racks to cool slightly. Serve warm.
