This was printed in Favorite Recipes by Borden in 1987. I have been using this recipe every year at Thanksgiving and Christmas since then with a couple of twists. I am updating this recipe based upon CountryLady's review. I made this recipe using fresh sweet potatoes and it is so much better. I am leaving the canned as an option. Both ways are good.
My mom has the amazing ability to turn the mundane into something awesome. Never fail, one of my 5 brothers or sisters would ask for this every night. Simple, Tasty, Attractive and goes with just about anything. You can adjust the amounts to your liking as potatoes come in all sizes. Southern all the way!
This is a very easy way to give the bland potato a lot of new flavour. The light coating of butter and cheese given the potatoes a crisp outside. This recipe can also be microwaved. See Microwave Sliced Baked Potatoes.
