The BEST guilty pleasure, loosen your belt, stuff your face, potatoes you'll ever eat. Outstanding with ham or pork tenderloin, but nicely compliment fish, beef or chicken dishes as well and once you have them you'll want them again & again. I got this from Aunt Ginger, and it's one you'll pass down too. They make GREAT fried hash browns the next day.

I, too, have made these for years. We call them cheesy potatoes. This is my oldest son's favorite dish. I use cream of Chicken soup instead. Also try it sometime with mozarella cheese. This works great too!
I have used this recipe many times - IT IS GREAT!!! The only thing I do different is I use cream of chicken soup (personal preference). When I have my family over for dinner (15 of us) I always have to double the recipe - everyone always has seconds!
