HELPFUL TIPS & TRICKS
When you buy your goat cheese for this recipe, opt for a variety that currently has herbs inside. This will add extra flavor to your casserole.

Bake the Following Day. This recipe is excellent, as you don’t have to make it on the day you serve it. You can prepare it the day before in the casserole dish and then pop it in the oven before dinnertime.

Not a goat cheese fan? If the tangy flavor and odor of goat cheese are not to your liking, then you may substitute cream cheese instead.

Do Not Add Cold Ingredients to Warm Potatoes. Make sure your dairy products are room temperature before incorporating them in. The potatoes will consume them better this way along with the dish, will wind up much creamier.
