How do I know if the potatoes in this casserole are cooked all the way?
The easiest way to tell if the potatoes are done is to stick a fork in them and see if they’re tender. If they feel really hard, they’re going to need more time in the oven.
Is the flour really necessary?
It is used as a thickening agent in this recipe to give it that casserole texture. While I haven’t used a different type of thickening agent, you can try if you’d like.
How do you store leftovers of this potato casserole?
Make certain to let it cool completely and then store it in a container with a lid. As long as you keep it in the fridge, it should be good for up to 3 days to enjoy as leftovers. If you think you’re going to have it longer than that, you can add to a freezer-safe container and freeze.
See how simple and delicious this recipe is? It’s literally one of the easiest casseroles that you’ll ever make. You can even set out some spicy additions like jalapenos or cheese to give it an extra kick if you want.
