Grandpa's Party Potatoes
This casserole from Mary Kay Elert of St. Paul Park, Minnesota will please even the pickiest eaters. "My grandpa, who gave me the recipe to me, liked the way the cream cheese and onion dip created a wonderful velvety texture. I often assemble it the night before, then pop it in the oven the next day," she details.
