Foodie Friday: Cheesy Potatoes

Some may call them scalloped, some may call them cheesy taters... I call 'em freaking fantastic! This recipe is one that's been passed down from my Mema, to my mom, and now to me. To be honest, I'm not sure if this is even the exact way they make them, but it's how I remember it and quite frankly, I make them pretty dang good.

PS- I keep it simple. There really is no way to screw these up.


Cheesy Potatoes

Prep Time: 40 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes

Yields: 10 servings


  • 2.5 pounds gold potatoes
  • 1 bag (2.5 cups) shredded Colby Jack cheese (or whatever kind you prefer)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


Peel and cut potatoes into 1 inch cubes. Par-boil potatoes until a knife can be easily inserted through potato without much force. Layer potatoes, cheese, and salt and pepper into a 9x9 dish. Cube butter into single tablespoon portions, and shove each cube into the potatoes.Pour milk over the potatoes. Cook for 45 minutes at 400 degrees. Enjoy!
