Casseroles. It’s taken me years to get over that word. There’s something about the word “casserole” that completely turned me off. Now though, I embrace the casserole. Especially ones with bacon and cheese, and oh yes, potatoes! Three of my all time favorite ingredients. So whether you call it a casserole or a baked dish, this one is delicious and I urge you to give it a try!
