Soup and Sides to Warm Up Holidays

Dec 08, 2014 03:34AM ● Published by Family Features

The best holiday meals have sides that are warm, comforting and satisfying — like your family’s favorite mashed potatoes. This year, bring potatoes to the table in three new ways with recipes that can be easily made with little fuss. Gathering everyone together is easy when you serve side dishes prepared with quality ingredients, such as Hungry Jack potatoes. Invite guests to taste the traditional flavors of the season in a whole new light with these crowd-pleasing recipes:

  • Add some celebration to your spread with Festive Loaded Mashed Potatoes. Red bell pepper and green onion bring crunch, color and flavor to round out a merry mealtime.
  • A delicious combination of spinach, potatoes and creamy cheese is the perfect complement to your holiday entree. This recipe for Double Cheese Spinach-Potato Pie is a hearty, flavorful side that can be served in its classic pie form or as a casserole.
  • Family and friends will be lining up for seconds when they try Pumpkin Potato Soup, with its rich, velvety texture and the spice of the season.

You can find more warm and satisfying holiday soup and side recipes on the Hungry Jack Pinterest page, or at www.hungryjackpotatoes.com.

Pumpkin Potato Soup

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin puree
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup Hungry Jack Classic Mashed Potatoes
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add pumpkin, broth, water and potato flakes; stir until smooth. Stir in milk, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and garlic powder.
  3. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until soup begins to bubble around edge of saucepan and is thickened. Reduce heat to low.
  4. Stir in sour cream and heat through before serving. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Double Cheese Spinach-Potato Pie

Ingredients

  • 1 carton (4.2 ounces) Hungry Jack Cheesy Hashbrown Potatoes
  • 3/4 cup Hungry Jack Mashed Potato Flakes
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 16 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil

Preparation

  1. Refresh hashbrown potatoes according to package directions. After 12 minutes, drain and squeeze out any excess liquid from carton.
  2. Heat oven to 425°F. Coat 9-inch pie dish with cooking spray.
  3. While hashbrowns are standing, combine potato flakes, milk, eggs, Parmesan, pepper and salt in large bowl. Mix in spinach.
  4. Add oil to refreshed hashbrowns in carton and mix well.
  5. Spread 3/4 of hashbrowns firmly onto bottom and sides of prepared pie dish. Spoon spinach mixture lightly into dish. Top evenly with remaining hashbrowns, fluffing hashbrowns with fork.
  6. Bake until hashbrowns are well-browned and center is set, 30–35 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing into wedges.

  2. Heat water, butter, salt and pepper until simmering in large saucepan. Remove pan from heat.
  3. Stir in milk and potato flakes until blended. Let stand 1 minute. Stir in sour cream.
