This is close to the perfect potato casserole recipe. Why? Because it's different. Because you can feed a few or feed the ward. Because you can switch out the kind of cheese, depending on what you have. Because it can be made ahead of time. Because it can be frozen. Because it uses frozen potatoes and you don't have to peel! Yep, just about perfect. Today's sister recipe is Swiss Potatoes.
