Our Traditional Potato Casserole

This has been part of our family’s Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner menu for many years. It can be assembled 1-2 days ahead, covered and refrigerated, then baked before serving. Or, it can be completely baked, refrigerated and then microwaved to heat. Just leave the onion ring topping till the end so they stay crisp. If I am feeling energetic, or I am contributing food to the Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner at someone else’s house, I have made my own deep-fried onion rings. But the tinned variety is so easy and quite good.

2. c. mashed potatoes
1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 eggs
2 T. flour
salt and pepper
1 can deep-fried onion rings
9″ square dish

Cook and mash potatoes. Beat in the cream cheese, onion, eggs, flour and salt and pepper. Turn into buttered baking dish and top with onion rings. Bake until hot, about 25 minutes at 350ºF. Makes 8-10 small servings and can easily be doubled for a crowd.
