Pleasing Potato Pie
After a hectic day of teaching junior high, I often headed to the quiet of my kitchen for peace! Now that I'm retired, cooking has replaced teaching as my first love. I especially like to serve this hearty dish for a relaxing weekend brunch.
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 45 min.
