Before we know it the holidays will be here and we’ll be planning our dinner menu with friends and family. I wanted to share with you one of my favorite holiday casserole dishes that I think you’ll like because it’s super easy to make and is pure comfort food. The casserole only has 4 ingredients: mashed potatoes, broccoli, cheese and crackers. Who doesn’t love those ingredients? I was serious when I said this was comfort food. It only takes 5 minutes to prepare, 25 minutes to bake. What you’re left with is a cheesy delicious casserole that will make everyone at the dinner table happy, including you because it hardly took any work to make!
The recipe calls for (2) bags of Idaho Spuds Instant Mashed Potatoes. I like the “Country Buttered” flavored kind beause it’s crafted with real butter and since I’m going for the comfort food effect, why not! Idaho Spuds is running a fun contest right now called “Home for the Holidays” where they are giving away 3 nights luxury accomodations, round trip airfare, rental car and spending money to their beautiful home – Shore Lodge on beautiful Payette Lake in McCall, Idaho! I’m going to enter because I’ve never been to Idaho! I like the idea of spending the holidays at home and then escaping to Idaho to recover!
