Mashed Potato Casserole

Paula Deen is known for her Buttah and fattening and unhealthy recipes.   Despite this, she is one good cook and her recipes are worth following with a few changes.

Although now, with her medical diagnosis, hopefully changes will be made.  This is one of those recipes which I happen to love.  There are ways to cut back and I tend to do this with any recipe, not only Paula’s.  I crossed out what I changed so you can see the differences.  If you want to, you can cut the cheese down, even more.
