Cheese and Potato Casserole
EVEN THOUGH my family is grown and gone, I still like to make mashed potatoes.
I came up with this variation a long time ago, thinking that it would be a change of pace. It became number one on my family's request list. It's also simple to make in larger quantities if needed.
