Cheddar Rice Potato Casserole

Carolyn Parke


This is so yummy. I got this recipe from a soup package and made a few changes and WahLah! I took it to a Christmas Party and it was the dish talk of the night. I had one of the ladies ask me if I would make one for her family's Christmas dinner. Wow what a compliment... Hopefully, this will soon become one of your family's favorite side dishes, or a meal all in itself as it has with mine. Enjoy!
