When this pie is baking, my daughter says that the house smells like Christmas. This recipe evolved over the years and is served as part of our family's Christmas Eve celebration. It's a soul-satisfying dinner on a cold winter day.—Michele Bouchard, Kansas City, Missouri
Here's a rich, comforting side dish that bakes up golden brown. It's a wonderful recipe for the colder months. I often serve these potatoes with my Swiss Steak.—Mildred Stubbs, Rockingham, North Carolina
Meet the Cook: When there's no gravy with the meat, this is great to serve in place of regularly mashed potatoes. I make it often to take to picnics and church socials. My husband even made it for his family's reunion one year when I couldn't go!
We have a grown son, a 17-year-old son and a 12-year-old daughter.

I first made this filling casserole for a camping trip with friends, adding potatoes and soup to stretch the recipe. It was a big hit. It's a great all-in-one meal that's sure to please your hungry eaters all year-round.
If the kids are always asking to eat dessert first, here's your chance. The moist "cake" layers are really full-flavored meat loaves "frosted" with instant mashed potatoes. Ketchup and mustard "icing" help complete the look.
My trick to roasting veggies is to choose ones that cook in the same amount of time. Try pairing up cauliflower florets with baby carrots or okra with cherry tomatoes.— Courtney Gaylord, Columbus, Indiana
This is one of my mom's recipes, except she used raw potatoes. I made it faster to prepare by using frozen hash browns, and it tastes every bit as good. Whenever I eat these potatoes, I always remember the pleasure of eating Mom's cooking.
