Creamy Mushroom-Potato Bake Recipe
Meet the Cook: The day I first made this, we'd invited a neighbor - a bachelor farmer - over, and I wanted to fix something hearty. It was a hit instantly. These days, our three sons (17, 16 and 13) enjoy it as a change from regular mashed potatoes. We've found that it's best served with beef...either with or without gravy. -Kathy Smith, Granger, Indiana
