AU GRATIN POTATO CASSEROLE is the perfect creamy, cheesy, crispy side dish that goes great with just about anything!
Aren’t potatoes awesome?! With like a thousand yummy ways to cook them, how could they not be? You can make French fries, plain ole baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, hash browns, scalloped potatoes, potato soup, gnocchi, potato chips, potato salad, potato skins, tater tots, twice baked potatoes,… just to name a few off the top of my head. Yeah, I don’t think I could live without potatoes.
This Au Gratin Potato Casserole is another potato to add to the list of easy casserole recipes. It’s creamy, cheesy, salty, and topped with crispy corn flakes. I’m a sucker for a crispy top on anything!

Made this tonight and it was DELICIOUS! My fiancé said it was his favorite potato dish yet. I followed the recipe but did some variations. I peeled the potatoes and didn’t put any crust on. I still covered with foil then took it off for the last half an hour. So so good!
Can I make this ahead of time and reheat it?
