Quick, easy, and delicious. Three of my favorite things!

How to Make Cracked Out Mashed Potato Casserole

This Cracked Out Mashed Potato Casserole is super easy to make. It starts with some instant mashed potatoes. Cook the instant mashed potatoes and then mix in some frozen shredded hash browns, butter, sour cream, cream cheese, ranch dressing mix, cheddar cheese, and bacon. Spread the potato mixture into a baking dish and top the casserole with some crushed Ritz crackers. Pop the casserole in the oven and bake.

You can substitute homemade mashed potatoes for instant mashed potatoes. You will need about 4 cups of mashed potatoes for this recipe. This is a great casserole to use up any leftover mashed potatoes you might have on hand.

You can use freshly cooked or precooked bacon in this casserole. I usually use precooked bacon because it is so much easier. I actually buy precooked bacon in bulk at Sam's Club and Costco for casseroles like this.

Can I Freeze Mashed Potato Casserole?

You can absolutely freeze this Cracked Out Mashed Potato Casserole. Since there are only two of us, I usually divide the potato mixture between a couple of foil pans and freeze them for a quick side dish later. You can freeze the casserole baked or unbaked. I usually freeze the casserole unbaked and bake when we are ready to eat.

To freeze the casserole, cover the pan with plastic wrap and foil and freeze. When ready to bake, thaw completely in the refrigerator and bake as directed below. To reheat the casserole, thaw completely and cover with foil. Reheat the casserole at 350ºF for 30 to 40 minutes.

Crockpot Chicken Parmesan Soup with Pasta

This Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Soup is a new favorite! It has all of the flavors of chicken parmesan in the form of a soup. I happen to love chicken parmesan, so I loved this soup!! The best part about this whole recipe is that it is super easy to make! Simply dump everything in the slow cooker and let it do all the work. Whip up a simple side salad and some garlic bread and dinner is done!

How to Make Chicken Parmesan Soup in the Slow Cooker

As I said, this Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Soup is SUPER easy to make. Start with placing a couple of boneless skinless chicken breasts in the slow cooker. Next add a jar of spaghetti sauce, tomato paste, diced tomatoes, chicken broth, garlic, and Italian seasoning. Let the soup cook for up to 8 hours. Remove the chicken and shred with 2 forks. Place the shredded chicken back in the slow cooker along with some pasta. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes until the pasta is cooked.

I like to use a jar of Trader Joe's Roasted Garlic Marinara or a jar of Rao's Marinara Sauce. Both are delicious and work great in this soup. Feel free to toss in some spinach too. I think frozen or fresh spinach would be delicious!
