Cheesy Potatoes Recipe Type : side dish Cuisine: side dish Author: Jessica from Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 2 hours Total time: 2 hours 10 mins Serves: 8-10 The best recipe for cheesy potatoes - dump all the ingredients into a dish and bake until potatoes are tender and cheese is bubbling.
Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 8
  • 2, 28 ounce packages cubed frozen potatoes with green peppers and onions
  • 1, 10 ounce block sharp cheddar cheese, grated (doesn't have to be exactly 10 ounces, but around that amount. I suggest grating it yourself as pre shredded cheese doesn't tend to melt well.)
  • ½ pint heavy whipping cream
  • 1 pint half & half
  • 8 tablespoons butter, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika (okay if you omit this. Adds more color than flavor)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13 baking dish (butter or non-stick spray would work); set aside.
  2. Add salt, pepper garlic powder and paprika to a small dish and stir.
  3. Add one package of potatoes to the greased dish, sprinkle with half of the seasoning mixture and half of the cheese.
  4. Add the other package of potatoes to the dish and sprinkle with the last half of the seasoning.
  5. Pour heavy cream and half & half over top evenly. Put slices of butter all over the top. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour. Remove aluminum foil and bake another hour. Turn off oven, sprinkle the last half of cheese on top and place back into the oven to let the cheese melt. It will take just a few minutes. Let sit for a few minutes before serving.
You can make this the day before. Bake it completely, bring to room temperature, cover and place in refrigerator. To re-heat, cover with aluminum foil and place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.If you can't find the frozen potatoes with onions and peppers in it, you can make it without them or simply dice up a yellow onion and green/red pepper and add it to the dish.
