I have to start this by saying, I know you’re probably wondering why on earth anyone would even think to throw some potato chips and dip into a dish and add cheese….you’re not are you? Because what is better than chips, dip, cheese, cream, and butter? Now, I won’t even pretend this is good for your waist, please don’t even ask me for the nutritional information on this, don’t you think ignorance is bliss? I couldn’t even enjoy this if I knew how long it was going to stay on my hips afterwards….that being said, this recipe is AMAZING!! Seriously!! It’s the BEST potatoes au gratin I have ever eaten!!

Now….down to business!!
