Reser's Main Street Bistro Baked Shredded Potato Casserole

We continue to try things for dinner while traveling in the Fuse.     Tonight we tried Reser's Main Street Bistro Baked Shredded Potato Casserole .  

Reser's Main Street Bistro Shredded Potato Casserole

When shopping this morning I came across this at the supermarket.  On sale for $3.00 a container I thought it was a bargain.  There were several potato options from Reser's but this one looked the best. I also had something to compare it to.  Sonya makes a potato casserole like this and it is one of my favorites.

Why potatoes tonight?  Well we were having T-Bone steaks and potatoes seemed be a natural side item.

T-Bone Steaks on Grill

They were beautiful steaks.  A little bit of olive oil, some salt, some pepper and they were ready for the grill.

They came out great.   As I was letting them rest I went in the motorhome and prepared the side.

The Casserole was easy to make.  Remove the plastic covering,  put in the microwave for 4 minutes and serve.  That is what the box said and it was right.

Steaks and Potato Casserole

So how did it taste?  Like the last pre-prepared dish we tried,  a little salty.  It would have been nice if they substituted more onion for some of the salt so there was more flavor and less sodium.   It was pretty good other than that.  I would get it again.

It was missing something however.  When Sonya makes Potato Casserole she puts some crunches on the top.  Usually some corn flakes in butter.  She puts them on a few minutes before the casserole is done.  Then she browns them the last few minutes.  This was missing the crunches.

Next time we may buy some plain croutons to put on top or bring a small box or two of cornflakes for the topping.  It might not be quite as good, but the crunches would definitely help.
