Hello, it’s Doree here from Top Notch Mom. I am so happy to be back here at Juggling Act Mama. It’s amazing how fast a month goes by! Before you know it the holidays will here and you’ll be on the hunt for the perfect side dish to go with your main dish. Today I am going to be sharing this family favorite Easy Baked Potato Casserole that is absolutely perfect for the holidays.
This recipe has been in my family for years and I am so excited to share it with you. It’s also a great recipe because it’s easily changeable to your liking. I loaded this Easy Baked Potato Casserole up, but it’s just as good without the bacon and other toppings.
