Potato Casserole & a Virtual Holiday Brunch Potluck
I sometimes wish I lived near some of my food blogger friends, it would make it so much easier wouldn’t it? All of the wonderful food I see on some of my favorite blogs all in one place? I wish we could but since we couldn’t, we came together to do a virtual potluck. I’m sharing a huge family favorite, a potato casserole. It’s a really easy casserole to make. You really cannot get easier than this cheesy potato casserole.
We have it at Thanksgiving every year and even at Christmas. I like to eat it with scrambled eggs for breakfast too! A co-worker shared the recipe with some years back, 6 years ago? I would love to give credit where credit is due so if you recognize it, let me know!
Mix together the sour cream, shredded cheese, cream of celery soup and salt & pepper first then add potatoes and mix well. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
Spread evenly in a 9×13 metal or glass dish. Cover the casserole with crushed corn flakes and melted butter. You won’t regret this dish.
I mean it, you won’t. So tell me…what’s your favorite brunch recipe?
