Visually this is not a very appealing recipe, but it’s a fantastic side dish. I made this to go along without Easter dinner and everyone would crazy over it. I received more compliments than I expected too, and a ton of recipe request. This recipe is called comfort casserole for a good reason. Who needs a hug when you can add potatoes? Add a little ham in there and it would be comfort casserole. We all really enjoyed this recipe and I bet you will too!
