Company Potatoes

Company Potatoes.  Have you ever heard of them?  Nate never had, until Thanksgiving.  Speaking of Thanksgiving, hope everyone had a great Turkey Day!  Nate ended up having to work at the restaurants first Thanksgiving feast.  Even though we weren’t able to go home and be with our families, we made the best of it.  I had lunch at the restaurant with another restaurant’s wife and their daughter.  And what makes it more fun, is that she’s pregnant too 🙂  So we had LOTS to talk about!  Then I ran home and put together all of the Thanksgiving side dishes and sauces, and went to visit a good friend and her family.  I visited and ate with them until I got the call from Nate that he was off of work.  He and his good friend headed to our house with the turkey (fresh from Missouri) and we finally got to eat our Thanksgiving feast at 9:00pm.  And for the next 4 days.

Company Potatoes are exactly what they sound like.  It’s a potato casserole you make for when company comes over.  They please everyone and the recipe makes enough to feed a crowd.  My family has been making these potatoes for holidays since before I can remember, and it is by far one of my favorite recipes.  What’s convenient is, you can put the casserole together the day before minus the corn flake topping, and dress/bake the next day when you’re ready.
