Recipe: Potato Chip Casserole

I’m at it again; entering this week’s Holiday Recipe Exchange for a chance to win a 3.5 quart Le Creuset French Oven. Come join the fun at the My Baking Addiction and GoodLife Eats Holiday Recipe Swap sponsored by Le Creuset.

This another “heritage” recipe, handed down from my mom to me to my daughter. It’s the first oven-dish I ever taught her to make.
