As the school year begins, that means that we get pretty busy and sometimes dinner gets put on the back burner.That also I need quick meals that many times are one dish meals or casseroles.  This Cheesy Potato Casserole hit just the right spot for dinner.  Of course, it was also loved by the whole family which was a huge plus!

This can be made with any of your favorite diced potatoes.  I made it with Simply Potatoes, but you can use any style of Potatoes O’Brien too.  Essentially, I swapped out a pasta for potatoes, which is a great way to mix up a meal too.

This is almost like having a big stuffed baked potato, but instead you have diced potatoes. It’s best to use a frozen potato that is seasoned as well, if not just add some seasoned salt to your potatoes.

We ended up eating these as leftovers the next day, you could even get another boost of protein and add a fried or poached egg on top. If you want to take these for a brunch or breakfast party, you could always swap the beef for a good ground sausage too. The possibilities are endless!

I already have this back on our menu too because it’s just a must!  My kids loved it and what better way to do dinner than one that will be gladly eaten without complaints?  Plus, it’s a frugal meal too that goes a long way because it makes so much.

Are you ready for a taste of this delicious casserole? Time for dinner or brinner!
