Tales from a 20-Something's Kitchen.

One girl's mission to take on Pinterest. And win. And eat some great food in the process.

College Casserole

I present to you a first: my own recipe!

Let me preface this by saying that this came out of necessity. I just got back from a week in Michigan at a theatre festival and there is no food in the fridge. Literally none. I have a pudding cup and a bagel to my name right now.

My roommates and I decided to combine things that we had in our kitchen and call it food. And that’s how this was born. Granted, it’s not the most revolutionary thing in the world, but we liked it.

You will need:

5 small potatoes

1 can of green beans

french fried onions

shredded cheese

Ok, preheat the oven to 350, you’ll need that later. Next, mash the potatoes. I do it the college way in the microwave. Peel them, poke holes in them with a fork, put in a bowl in the microwave for five minutes. Take the bowl out, flip the potatoes over, poke a few more holes and put the bowl in for another 2:30. Take the bowl out, mash them together with a spoon/masher whatever. Pour milk into the bowl, like 1/3 of a cup? Mix and mash all of that together, then pour in 2-3 tbsps of melted butter. Put all that together, then put all the potatoes in the bottom of a small round pan.

Drain the green beans, then just dump the whole can on top of the potatoes, then evenly spread out. For the french fried onions and cheese, just spread as much as you would like for the top two layers.

Put it in the oven for 10 minutes and ta-da! Casserole.
