Lasagna filled with layers of creamed corn sauce, thinly sliced potatoes, cheese, and bacon. This pasta dish is great for a family dinner but also fancy enough for company.
Good November to all of you! It is that time of year when some of us to throw caution to the wind and give ourselves permission to increase our intake of foods that are on the sinful side. I'd like to think of it not as a choice but merely as a coping mechanism. Living in the Northeast, it's going to be five long months of waking up and ending the work day in the darkness. Then there is the cold, snow, sleet, and ice factor to consider. It's enough to make a girl want to crawl into bed and hibernate throughout the fall and winter seasons. And if you read my older posts, you will see that I will be living in multiple layers and turtlenecks for the next six months. It's not because I want to—it's because I HAVE TO!! I get THAT cold! Since the next several months can't be slept through, I do the next best thing and wait it out with some help from gut-busting-warm-you-inside-and-out gastronomic delights.
I am starting out with the Creamed Corn and Bacon Lasagna. It's a cheesy, bacon-filled, carb-loading plateful of shaking-off-the-winter-blues (okay, so it's not officially winter yet...but it's autumn and it's dark and cold...essentially, it's winter in my book). This lasagna has a little more carbs than your typical lasagna thanks to the addition of thinly sliced potatoes. I'd like to think of this dish as corn chowder in lasagna form—with layers of potatoes, creamed corn sauce, cheese, and bacon. It will definitely satiate any appetite!
So...the next time you want to have something new, something filling, something delicious, something to pick you up, try this. Invite the neighbors over and commiserate over hot Creamed Corn and Bacon Lasagna!
