Trainer Recipe- Smashed Potato Casserole

Life Transformations Personal Trainers in Lee’s Summit like to share healthy recipes for clients and the local community.  Here is a healthy recipe for Smashed Potato Casserole.  This is a quick and easy recipe that only has THREE ingredients.  Prep and bake time is only 30 minutes.  Try it out and see how easy it is.  If it’s a hit…you an change it up.  Try a different potato (yellow, red, Russet) or a different cheese, or throw in some spices.

This casserole is mainly potatoes, which would be a healthy carb (potatoes are such a starchy vegetable, I place them in this category).  So, you need to add a little meat and green veggies.  This recipe would pair nicely with almost anything.  Basic baked or grilled chicken, lean turkey, salmon (or other fish) or even lean beef.  Now…onto the recipe!
