Creamy Potato Sticks Recipe

This homey potato side dish harks back to my ranch kitchen in Montana, where my husband and I raised four sons and a daughter. Hearty eaters, they always spooned up big servings of this casserole. Cutting the potatoes into sticks is a nice change. —Marie Hoyer, Hodgenville, Kentucky

"I've been making this for a few years and felt I should leave a review. We love it! We make it to accompany the lil cheddar meatloaves from TOH as well. I make it as written, only omitting onions and adding 1 Tbs of dried minced onions instead. quick and easy to throw together, good to take to a potluck too!"

"Really good flavor. I was in a hurry, so I substituted frozen unseasoned steak fries. It worked great. A definite keeper."
