Cheese and Potato Casserole

Blueberry Carmel cake, Stuffing,Cauliflower Broccoli Casserole, 042When preparing a meal for company it is sometimes challenging to prepare something different and out of the ordinary.  I find this with veggies.  It seems that we fall into the habit of preparing the same old thing the same old way.  So I try to hunt down recipes that are a little different.  If they also can be prepared ahead of time that is a bonus.  This recipe I have had for years and I love it because of the flexibility of when I can make it.  If I prepare a large meal with loads of courses then this potato casserole is perfect because I make it 2-3 days ahead, put it in the fridge and bake it when I need it.  Served in the dish it is baked in, also is a time saver.  All of these things allow me to spend more time with my guests.
