potatoes are my carb addiction (next to home baked bread). I made this side dish, on Easter Sunday, to serve with an Atlanta Brisket and with Texas Roadhouse Rolls. Everyone had seconds (and some had thirds, though I shall not name them to keep their dignity intact).
Over the years, my food shopping has evolved into skipping the canned soups section (with the exception of low-sodium chicken or beef broth)-- and that includes onion soup mix.
TASTING NOTES: Who doesn't love a twice-baked potato? This is a cousin of my twice-baked potato casserole. There is a slight tang, from the sour cream. If you're not a fan of sour cream, then cut back about half. I would think you could switch around your cheeses preferences,but I found that the Monterey Jack and Sharp Cheddar were perfect. Shredded has browns are good, but the next time I have a potluck, I'll buy cubed potatoes. I think they would make a great substitute. I'm definitely going to use corn flakes, as well. That's a great choice!
I am focusing on limiting how much "comfort food" I eat, so I resisted the temptation to eat more than a heaping serving spoonful. The rest of my family, and guests, kept raving about how delicious this is. Yes, I know the feeling. (Whistful sigh.) Once in a while, it's good to indulge in a delicious casserole recipe. This one is definitely worth the indulgence. Five stars!! This is a perfect dish to bring to a potluck. If you do, be prepared to be asked for the recipe.
