Of Patty Melts and Potato Tots

Several weeks ago, the hubby asked the ages-old question that every husband asks the wife.  “What’s for dinner?”  Of course, since it was not even 3:00 in the afternoon, I hadn’t even given dinner a thought.  He, though, already had.  He found two recipes on line that he wanted me to make…that night…and it had to be those exact recipes that he had found, not recipes that were similar.   Often this doesn’t bother me, but I must have been stressed that day and really wasn’t in the mood to make such dishes that particular night.  I would have preferred to study the recipes, make sure I had all the ingredients, and make them another day.  Although I was a little grumpy about it, I did make him his recipes.

Both these recipes are very good, but a little time-consuming when making both of them for the same meal.  Next time, I will not serve them at the same time!!

Here is the link to the Patty Melts recipe.  http://www.cookscountry.com/recipes/6420-patty-melts?incode=MKSKZ00L0  The only changes I made were to use cheddar cheese instead of Swiss since I had no Swiss on hand, and  home made bread instead of rye since I had no rye.


The Potato Tots were amazing!  My son Sam said they were the best potato tots he had ever had!  They do take time to make, so make sure you plan accordingly!     http://www.cookscountry.com/recipes/6794-crispy-potato-tots?incode=MKSKZ00L0
