When cooking for a group or large family, you can’t beat a casserole. Especially in the winter months. Hearty, comfort food that warms you from the inside out. It also can be a great meal for entertaining or parties, mostly because you can prepare them ahead of time, and pop it in the oven when you need to. If you happen to have a delay setting on your oven, you can even put in the oven, set your timer and temperature to start and you can run your errands, and come home to dinner waiting for you. Convenient!

This is one of those recipes you will want to make again and again. Simple yummy!
