Cheesy Potato Casserole (A.K.A Gulley Taters) Recipe @pinch

You're going to find excuses to make this cheesy potato casserole. The potatoes are tender and smothered in a thick, creamy, rich homemade cheese sauce. Diced onion adds a nice flavor and blends with the other ingredients. Buttery crackers and slices of butter only add to the decadence of this potato side dish. This recipe got its alias from a co-worker who fell in love with it at one of our company dinners. He named it after me. ~grins~ Each time we had a dinner, I was told to bring my "Gulley Taters." LOL! They are oh-so cheesy and delicious too. Hope you enjoy them!
