There’s nothing like comfort food when your appetite is fleeting. According to Wikipedia, comfort food is “food that is prepared traditionally, that may have a nostalgic or sentimental appeal or simply provide an easy-to-eat, easy-to-digest meal rich in calories, nutrients, or both.”
With that in mind, I can’t think of a better example of comfort food than Creamy Mashed Potato Casserole. This recipe combines your favourite potato with cream cheese, hot milk, cheddar cheese, breadcrumbs and some optional spices. Nothing says comfort like potatoes and cheese!
