One new recipe and one from the old recipe file. This is a little late because it was one of our Lenten favorites from years past along with a new side dish picked up from a Pinterest pin. These two combined for a great meal. Even though there was only 3 of us at dinner, we made the full recipe of scallopsthat is shown as 6 dishes. I might try to make this is one large dish next time and let everyone select how much they would like. The scallops are low in calories, so a family sized portion would work out fine.
The potato recipe has been shared already with my mother in law to take for a pot luck. It is a great side dish casserole for family dinners and gatherings. Is there a graduation party or shower in your future that you need a side dish? This one is worth a try.
