Corn chowder

Dice 5 russet potatoes and cook in instapot with 2 cups water, ~1tbsp butter and 1 packet chicken oxo.

Cook bacon and dice.

Add to the instapot after potatoes are done:

1L half and half cream (10%)

~1 cup milk (3.25%)

1 can cream corn

1 bag (300g) frozen corn

1 handful diced (red pepper, yellow pepper, orange pepper, yellow onion, garlic cloves)

Cook on soup setting 10 min then allow to slow cook about 1 hour.

Best served with fresh stew biscuits (we like Pillsbury heat and eat kind with butter)


Loaded potatoe salad

Might be a rehash …

3/4 cup sour cream

1/4 cup mayo

1/2 cup bacon bits bigger is better

1/2 cup shredded cheese

2 heaping table spoons onion

1 table spoon dried chives

2 cups cooked diced potatoes

Single serve Quiche

Think omelette.

Peel potato into a 12 muffin tin until it’s about 1/2 full. Or use hash browns. Press potatoes in.

Top with a small pat of butter.

Bake at 450 for 15 min or until golden brown.

Mix 8 eggs, splash of milk, 1/2 cup bacon crumble, 1/2 cup cheese shreds, salt and pepper into bowl and whisk until smooth. Pour over potato base and bake another 15 min at 350.

eggs will puff up while cooking.

My regular muffin tins made about 4 bite breakfast – food with a fork.

Could use a pie crust instead of potatoes for traditional quiche. And can use any omelette style toppings and seasonings with these.
