Sometimes you just want comfort food.

The beauty of this mouthwatering cheesy potato casserole (sometimes also referred to as “Funeral Potatoes,”) is in its utter simplicity. It whips up in minutes, taking advantage of convenient pre-diced potatoes, and other ready-to-use ingredients.

And it’s so good. Seriously. Next time you’ll want to double the recipe!
