Potato Casserole

Easter is in a week and 1/2 folks! I don’t know about you, but I am already starting to plan our menu!  Need a side dish to go with that ham or pork tenderloin? This is THE dish for you. Healthy? Not so much. Worth every calorie – OH YES.

Want to know how much we like these potatoes? Well, we will be having these AGAIN next week for Easter, even though we made them this week to share the recipe with you all! hah

These have been to go-to potato recipe in our family for quite a few years. You better believe we bring these puppies out for every family holiday dinner!  They have become one of the hubs’ all time favorite side dishes. In fact, he refers to them the “THE” potatoes. Example of how he uses it in a sentence, “OOoo, can you make THE potatoes for Easter?!!” Yes hunnay, we can.

    Holy smokes! I have been getting those frozen hashbrown patties recently as a weekend treat, but I may have to ‘step my hashbrown game up’

    I make this exact recipe EVERY YEAR for Thanksgiving. We can only have them once a year or we would weigh 500 lbs. each.
