This recipe came from my Nana (aka one of my best-friends) who has made it for every special occasion. It is so good but so bad but an absolute must for a comfort food recipe collection. Note: don't eat these first or you won't be able to finish your meal!

Terrific potato casserole! Smooth and creamy. I added some salt, and used low-fat sour cream. Thanx for posting. I'll make this again. It will be a hit for holiday dinners.
