This Easy Cheesy Potato Casserole recipe is adapted from a recipe given to us by Katie – an old friend and co-worker of my husband Jack. Katie shared her recipe with us several years ago when she learned that we were starting A Family Feast. (Thank you Katie!) I recently found Katie’s recipe among some old computer files – and we couldn’t wait to share it today!
