Cheesy Potatoes

Last week my kids requested meatloaf and I was craving cheesy potatoes so I decided to try out this recipe because it looked easy and sounded delicious.  I was able to throw these potatoes and meatloaf together after school and still have dinner on the table around 6:00 and my entire crew ate it.  AMEN!




Here's What You'll Need...
- 4 Russet potatoes, cleaned and diced
- softened butter (about 2 tablespoons)
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 3 cloves minved garlic
- 1 teaspoon salt
- pepper
- 1 cup grated cheddar


Here's What You'll Do...

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and smear the softened butter all over the bottom/sides of a baking dish (this is the dish I use ALL the time!). 


STEP TWO: Slice the potatoes, dice them (next time I'll cut them a bit smaller).


STEP THREE:  Whisk together the cream, milk, garlic, salt, fresh pepper (as much as you'd like!) and flour.


STEP FOUR: Put 1/3 of the potatoes into the baking dish, cover with 1/3 of the sauce and then repeat... ending with sauce.  Make sure that you mix it all around so that the potatoes are mostly covered in the liquid




STEP FIVE: Cover the dish either with the lid or with foil and then bake it for 30 minutes.  After 30 minutes, uncover the potatoes, stir them up a bit (so the ones on the top can be in the liquid),  top them with about one cup of shredded cheddar and bake (uncovered) for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked to your desired tenderness.


Hello, gorgeous!!!



These were the PERFECT side to go along with meatloaf and they were so incredibly easy and delicious!  If you add them to your Fall recipe list I'd love to hear what you think!

HAPPY Tuesday, friends!

  3. These look and sound delicious!! I'm thinking instead of adding everything in thirds....you could just put the potatoes and sauce in a big bowl and stir together and then put into baking dish (since the goal is to make sure all the potatoes have sauce on them). But, I haven't actually baked these so I'd like to get your thoughts on that before I try it. :)

  4. Meatloaf is our back to school dinner too! We just did mashed potatoes last night, but I'm adding this to my recipe list. Thanks!

  5. Another easy thing to do is cut up potatoes, spray a cookie sheet- put potatoes in a huge zip lock with some oil and ranch dressing mix and shake them up good. Pour out onto cookie sheet and bake at 400 until soft. So good.

  8. I made something similar and used the frozen potatoes (I think they are with the frozen hashbrowns). It was so easy and you didn't have to cut up the potatoes. But these look yummy!

  11. Yum! I do a similar dish, but add a large diced onion, and spoon about a 1/2 cup of potatoes/onions/sauce onto a square of foil, and wrap up in little packets. They take less time in the oven, but you still the get steam effect & it's easy to plop a packet onto everyone's plate! (Put the packets on a baking tray in case they leak.)
