Holidays require mashed potatoes around here. Blogging requires not making the same recipe year after year. This year, I elected to jazz up our spuds and baked up a Cheesy Mashed Potato Casserole to accompany our Easter ham.

Cheesy Mashed Potato Casserole

Bill grew up in a meat and potatoes family. His dad expected potatoes at nearly every meal. Rice was not on their regular rotation, but potatoes were fixed in every which way. So in order to have a happy hubby, I’ve fried, baked, twice baked, smashed, mashed, made potato pancakes, roasted wedges and fries and more. I’ve created mashed potato casseroles for company in the past, but that was ages ago. With a low maintenance ham for our Easter entree, I had plenty of time to dream up a special cheesy mashed potato casserole.

Today, you’ll have to pop over to Heather’s (AKA Basilmomma) blog to find the recipe. Heather is laid up after surgery and needed a few blogger friends to pinch hit for her as she recovers. We both live in the Indianapolis area so have crossed paths in real life at local foodie events, the WISH-TV station and even at a marvelous blogger conference in Virginia. She’s busy mom with a hectic schedule and I know she’s dying to get back to 100%. Please stop by to say hello and check out this potato casserole recipe. My gang loved it.
