Cheesy potatoes

This is a Southern Living recipe.  IT is not for the heart-health conscious but if you subscribe to the notion that everything is permissible in moderation, this recipe is a real crowd pleaser.  Its a great casserole for Christmas or Easter since you can out it together it the day before and just pop it in the oven while you visit with your guests.
