Cheesy Fries Casserole was made with the idea that you were probably gone all day at work and you couldn’t think of anything to make but you have all this in you fridge or freezer. You and I both know that there is limited time these days so we wanted it to be fast, easy and not too much forethought. Pick up these ingredients and throw them in the oven for you and whoever you live with for a delicious comfort food!
