Fridge Diving is on the menu for dinner tonight!

Back from vacation to crude reality, but no time to recover as Christmas Eve dinner is just a round the corner!

Knowing that I will be in the kitchen for the next couple of days, made me kind of lazy, so off I went to hunt in the fridge for those little hidden treasures and here is what I found.

  • A bit of leftover spicy sausage meat
  • A bit of leftover maple sausage meat
  • 2 jalapeños
  • Potatoes
  • cheese

The first thing that came to mind was Jalapeño Scalloped Potatoes with sausage meat, and that is what ended up on the menu for dinner tonight!

Parboiled and sliced my peeled potatoes with my friendly mandolin.

Then made my sauce with flour, milk, herbs, nutmeg, garlic and cheese. and one chopped jalapeño.

I cooked the sausage meat in a separate pan and then mixed the layered potatoes and beef with the rich tasty sauce. Topped it all with some sliced jalapeños.

In the oven they went for about 30 minutes (until bubbling and nicely golden) and tasty dinner for one hungry family is ready!

Simple, easy, tasty and of course it was the great result of “Fridge Diving”!
