This was not a bad casserole. It was selected as tonight’s dinner because son #1 was having a friend over and I thought this would be something that would appeal to a kid for dinner. What kid doesn’t want Doritos in his dinner. For me it was a tad to greasy, for the kids it was awesome. Knowing that we do not always eat the most common foods, I didn’t want to scare the friend away by serving “weird” food. This is a very traditional area, Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine is fairly common. Comfort foods reign. Pizza is typical “I’m having friend’s over” fare.

In the normal scheme of things, I would never have fixed a meal like this. Seriously, Doritios were on sale – for $3.00 a bag! This recipe called for an ENTIRE bag! I cannot imagine what the nutritional values look like. Since it was a special occassion (with 4 boys in the house, it’s not every weekend they have a friend over – we tend to run out of beds) this was the dinner of choice, approved by son #1, so this is what we went with.
