First lady, Jackie Kennedy is reported to have served this easy, delicious Casserole Marie Blanche, during the time she lived in the White House.
History of Casserole Marie Blanche
My Mom made this easy, tasty side dish at least once or twice a year. When I asked my Mom if she still had the recipe, she couldn’t find it.
I knew the basic recipe, but could never find a reference for it online.
Most attribute it to Jacqueline Kennedy, one says she served it at a private dinner for her brother-in-law and sister, Prince and Princess Radziwill in 1961.
Who knows, but it is good!! What the real story is, the world may never know!
