This Broccoli Cheese & Potato Casserole recipe is the perfect simple dinner idea that the whole family will love. Throw some chicken in and freeze for your next busy night!
This Broccoli Cheese Potato Casserole is an awesome simple side dish that can be put together right before dinner, or even the night before. Five out of five kids ate it, and four of five without any complaints! That's a serious achievement folks. Very serious. It's perfect for a busy night, lazy Sunday, or for bringing to a friend. You can throw some shredded chicken in to make it a full meal, or do what we did and serve it with stuffed chicken breasts from the frozen food aisle!
Sometimes your two year old needs love while dinner's fixing. Being two is tough. He says hi (or more likely "HIIIIIIIII!!!!") and wants you to know that he'll listen to mommy next time and not pinch his fingers in the garlic press.
