This Week’s Secret To Success
This week’s meal ideas work because they rely on delicious, cheesy casseroles! Easy 9×13 casseroles are the work horses of family meals, and the recipes featured here are no different.
They can be put together ahead of time, usually make enough for leftovers and freeze well. And this week’s casserole recipes? Neither one of them use canned soup. For us, that’s a total plus. They’re still easy to make, loaded with full, savory flavors and made of real ingredients! A win all around!
This recent 5 star review says it all.
This will forever be how I make cheesy potatoes going forward! I went looking for a recipe that doesn’t use canned soup, and this was a home run. Absolutely delicious and so easy! I put it together yesterday and refrigerated it then baked it for Easter dinner today. My family loved it! Thank you so much for the awesome recipe. -Jennie
