DH is grilling a pork loin tomorrow (yumm-o!) and I got to thinking I'd love to use the DCB to make a side. Beats turning on the oven!

What are your favorite side dishes in the DCB? Mind sharing the recipes?

I love our risotto recipe, but I use sundried tomato chicken sausage instead of the italian sausage (not an italian sausage fan)

So, I haven't tried this..but it should work in theory. I think :)

Macaroni and Cheese
Use milk and uncooked macaroni add some butter pats and cheese. cover and bake for 14 minutes (that is how long the penne takes to cook in the Penne pasta al fresco, right?) little s & P and we're good! If you try it before I do, let me know how it goes! LOL!

Was just looking for something new to make this weekend...pulled out the Causal Cooking Book, and there's a Hot German Potato Salad. It's to be put in a metal pan and placed on the grill...don't see why you couldn't do it in the microwave.

I was talking microwave here too. Forgot to say that! Oops!

Somewhere there is a recipe for cheesy potatoes in the DCB in the microwave... Seems like it might have been AnnieBee that posted it in another thread months ago... it was really good, sorry I can't remember the recipe... something with frozen hashbrowns, cream of something soup, cheese, maybe sour cream.... it was really good! and easy!

Oh! That was me! Duh! How could I have forgotten?

I just took my cheesy potatoes recipe, and made it in the Micro in the baker, instead of in the oven. It was done in 30 minutes instead of an hour! Mmmmm, I love that recipe!

Okay - found it! Here it is!

This comes from a church cookbook - but I have, of course, altered it to make me happy!

Cheesy Potatoes

2 lbs frozen hashbrowns
1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped
1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
4 Tbls. butter, melted
8 oz. Sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 pint sour cream

Combine all ingredients except butter, and spread in 9x13 baking dish (I used the DCB) Drizzle melted butter over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour (or 30 minutes in the microwave on high) Lid off.

Sorry I got the name wrong, I'm glad you found the recipe, I love those too, but couldn't remember where my recipe is! They are awesome! I remembered most of the ingredients pretty well though, just forgot the butter! I believe I skipped the onion (not a fan) or maybe used vidalia instead and I used cream of chicken, because I'm also not a fan of mushrooms, but other than that! AWESOME!!!

Sometimes I don't even use the butter. I usually put in extra onion :) but just whatever kind I have, and I use whatever cream soup I happen to have on hand. This is not really health food:rolleyes:, but it tastes oh so good, and men LOVE it!


Oh, and I've been known to also throw in some grated carrots too, just for a little added nutrition.
