As with many casseroles, this one won’t win any prizes in the looks department. But, it takes the ribbons in ease, ability to make ahead, low carb – and most of all – flavor.
And by flavor, we mean that when we let one junior belle be the taste tester, it got two thumbs up…from her, that’s no small feat! Picky doesn’t even begin to describe this one! If she could eat out every night she would be in hog heaven.
But maybe the tide has changed, because junior belle widened her big green eyes, flipped her golden locks and declared that it was so good she wanted seconds!!! Winning!!!
