Loaded Baked Potato Casserole (from boxed scalloped potatoes)

So some of my favorite recipes are the ones that are semi-homemade. Box cakes, jello mixes, mac n cheese, etc. etc. It's nice to take something simple to the next level. I had been on the hunt of a good "scalloped potato" recipe since they often go on sale for less than a dollar, and this one might just be a keeper! I made it for teacher lunch, so I quadrupeled it (which is why the pictures look like there is WAY more than what the recipe calls for. I would love to link this recipe, but it was attached to a pin, but not to a website through Pinterest. Enjoy!
