Cheesy Potato Casserole

Cheesy Potato Casserole

I’m not sure we could ever get tired of cheesy potato casserole. This is Aaron’s mom’s recipe, and it’s definitely one of our favorites.

In fact, when we hosted our weekly potlucks in College Station, we made this for our “Family Favorites” night. Everyone brought a dish that was a must-have at their family gatherings.

I think almost every dish that night at potluck was yellow.

Apparently we are not the only ones who require cheese to be a main ingredient of our favorite dishes.

When a friend of ours tried the casserole that evening, she asked, “What in the world is in this? Crack?”

No. But just take this as a warning, cheesy potato casserole is super addicting, and I will not be held responsible for your over consumption of it.
