Cottage Potatoes prove that potatoes can be more than just side dish fare; they can be the mouthwatering main. Rustic, hearty, and heartwarming, Cottage Potatoes blend the best of mashed potatoes and potato casserole to serve up something irresistible. This creamy, cheesy, savory goodness, with plenty of richness and crunch from the buttery cornflake crust, creates a chorus of "wow, that is good" from everyone who tastes it. Cottage Potatoes will become the best memory of your next dinner party or potluck, and one you'll want to relive again and again.
