Every Christmas, I host my annual recipe exchange. Every year, we have a theme and then after we eat, we vote on the BEST recipe from the night. In the past, recipes like Sheaffer’s Pineapple Casserole and Sheaffer’s Cream Cheese Caramel Surprise have won. (Side note: Sheaffer had a HUGE target on her back this year. Ha!) This year, the theme was “cook’s choice” and you could bring anything you wanted. We had dips, appetizers, a soup, a breakfast recipe, dessert and even a cocktail. But the winning recipe? Was a casserole. A casserole that would be perfect for you to make this holiday season. Our big winner was Narci with her Baked Potato Casserole…
I snapped this pic right before we devoured it that night. This one was so good…and EASY! You will love it too!!
