We love Feta cheese & potatoes in our household, and I wanted a creative way to use them for dinner and this is the dish I came up with. Cheese always makes casseroles taste better, then topping the casserole dish with French Fried onions also added an extra dimension of flavor. I served this tasty casserole with a Spiral Glazed ham that I made. Nothing compliments a Ham like a hearty tasty side dish of potatoes. Hope you try this dish sometimes, Feta and Cheddar taste awfully good together.
