Baseball season is underway and with a house full of boys that equals busy!!
We have games five nights a week and sometimes three games a night! Yes, you heard me, three games in one night. That gets a little complicated, trust me. We do our best and our boys know that some nights only dad may be at their game and other nights it may be mom. We pretty much have to divide and conquer.
So with a crazy, busy schedule like we have right now, I need quick and simple meals. This loaded baked potato casserole is the perfect thing for those nights. I can throw in the oven around 3:15 and its ready by 4:30, which is when I have to have dinner on the table so everyone can make it to their games on-time and well-fed. . . snack shack hot dogs get really old after awhile, so I try and have my boys fed before they head out the door.
My boys inhaled this the other night. They kept Mmmming and Ahhhhhing over this stuff, and I can’t say I blame them, I was doing the same thing. We drizzled a little ranch dressing on top and it was perfect!
Total comfort food and so easy to make. I love these kind of meals!
