My daughter LOVES potatoes. Mashed, baked, stuffed, of course french fries can’t blame her there, fries are SO good. One of her favorite meals is broccoli and cheddar stuffed baked potatoes. She would eat these all the time.
When I sat down to plan our our holiday menu, I wanted do something a bit more than mashed potatoes.
This casserole is all of her favorite baked potato toppings in one easy to prepare holiday dish.
Watch the video below for another delicious way to prepare your holiday potatoes. Tossed in caramel? It’s a sweet, salty, and spicy delight.
