Treat Tuesday #119...

Treat Tuesday: Loaded Au Gratin

*Ok, this is one of my new favorite dinner dishes.
*My wife found it online and we tried it over the holiday weekend while the kids were home.
*We all LOVED it!
*It was too difficult to make, although I didn't make so I probably should say that.
*It was the perfect side dish for our meat dinner.
*Not too low on calories, but every once and awhile you just have to enjoy a really great dish.
