Wintertime reminds me of comfort food. It's cold out, schedules are busy and the days are just a little shorter. I tried the following recipe out one night when everyone was craving something cream, hot and decadent. Chances are that you might already have most of these ingredients on hand in your pantry or freezer. You can also lighten the recipe by using low sodium soup and fat free sour cream. Add additional vegetables and make the recipe your own!

2 cups refrigerated potato wedges (from 1 lb. 4-oz. pkg.)

1 (10 3/4-oz.) can condensed cream of onion soup

1/4 cup water

2 cups Green Giant Select® Frozen Broccoli Florets (from 1-lb. pkg.)

24 frozen cooked meatballs (about 12 oz.), thawed

1/4 cup sour cream

  1. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, combine potatoes, soup and water; stir gently to mix. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in broccoli and meatballs; simmer 10 to 15 minutes or until broccoli and potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally.
  3. Stir in sour cream; cook just until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally.

Moms, what are your family's favorite comfort foods?

This sounds  so good. Usually when I think of comfort food I think of meatloaf or chicken pie. Usually somthing I can pair with mashed potatoes.
