Mom's Potato Puff Casserole

Recipe by WI Cheesehead

My mom used to make this often. It's NOT tater tots! Great warming winter meal. NOTE: Don't skip the dill weed. It makes the whole meal.

I love dill! Followed recipe to a T and it was perfect. We all loved it. I cook for a big family and this made everyone happy and full. Will be making this often.
