They say necessity is the mother of invention. Rush, tiredness, and lower back pain must be it's fairy godparents.


  1. Put the drained potatoes in a corning ware type dish big enough to allow the potatoes to be in one layer on the bottom.
  2. Cover the potatoes with a liberal dusting of butter sprinkles. (You could just drizzle melted butter over them if you happen to have had the foresight to purchase it, which I didn't).
  3. Sprinkle onion powder and garlic salt over potatoes to taste.
  4. Place Swiss cheese slices over the potatoes, halving slices as necessary.
  5. Cover the pan with oven safe lid.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes or until cheese has melted over the potatoes.

Truly one of the easiest recipes ever! The color of the finished dish was a little bland (white cheese on white potatoes), so I sprinkled with paprika and dried parsley flakes before serving. This would also be good with cheddar cheese on top instead of swiss.

Good Stuff! I made these as the recipe states and they were really good. the next time I added some parsley and a touch of cayenne pepper(just a pinch) and they were even better. thanks for a great recipe!

Made for Spring PAC 2008. This was very easy to make as a side dish and everyone enjoyed it. I followed the recipe as written other then I used shredded swiss instead of slices of swiss. I think this would taste great with other kinds of cheese too. Will be making again when I quick, easy, potatoe side dish is needed for dinner.
