Don't you love church picnics? Whenever there's a parish picnic or potluck dinner announced I get so excited. It's not only a time to see and fellowship with friends but it's a chance to taste some amazing food, drink gallons of sweet tea and learn about other recipes, some of which have been passed down from many generations. We had just such a picnic on Sunday after church. This time I brought an apple pie but one recipe I sometimes make is Loaded Baked Potato Casserole. Whenever I've taken this dish to a potluck, I don't have as much as a tablespoon left to bring home. I made this a couple of weeks ago for the four of us and we managed to do quite a number on it. Enjoy!
