Potato Casserole – Blog Post #5

I decided to create a new potato casserole for our Sunday dinner.  My mother-in-law told me that she loved it as she scooped up a second helping of the casserole.  So I think it’s a winner in my book.

I took some elements of my father-in-law’s famous creamed potato recipe and put a gluten free spin on the recipe.  Some of my family will eat gluten free with no complaint.  The others we don’t tell.  (Shh!  Don’t tell the Imaginative One.)

I used Trader Joe’s pumpkin pie spice in the dish.  You can use pumpkin pie spice like I did or freshly ground nutmeg.

The cheese I used on my dish was a maple flavored white cheddar cheese one from Aldi.  You could use any type of cheese you would like or leave it off.

This casserole would also be delicious with ham pieces and/or diced onions.  Yum!
