As a busy mother with two energetic children, I’m all for simplification. This includes a simple and easy, yet warm and hearty meal for a family weeknight dinner. In my household, almost anything in the form of potatoes is a no-fail dinner option. My all-time favorite has always been Au Gratin Potatoes. It is quick, easy, fulfilling, and budget-friendly.

Betty Crocker has been a household name since 1921. One can easily understand why since her meals, from Classic Mashed Potatoes to Au Gratin, are effortlessly easy, satiable, and ready within minutes! Over the weekend, my mission was to create the “perfect pairing” with Betty Crocker Au Gratin Potatoes. Even though Au Gratin Potatoes are a perfect solo, I had this idea of incorporating mixed pepper strips and grape tomatoes. To me, it all sounded like the perfect mix of three things I love. icon smile Betty Crocker Au Gratin Potatoes with Oven Roasted Peppers and Grape Tomatoes
