Cheesy Onion Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 15mins




  • If you are using unpeeled potatoes make certain to wash and scrub the skin, and if you are slicing the potatoes ahead of time and soaking in water the potatoes must be dried with a paper towel before using in this recipe.
  • Place the hot melted butter in a bowl; add in garlic powder,dry onion soup and cayenne pepper; mix to combine and allow to sit for about 30 minutes to soften the onion flakes (you may leave it sit for more time if desired) stir occasionally.
  • Slice the potatoes into quarters, then place in a large roasting pan; sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper.
  • Pour the butter mixture over the potatoes; toss to coat (I use my hands for this).
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Set oven rack to bottom position.
  • Bake uncovered 30 minutes.
  • Remove and stir the potatoes.
  • Place back in the oven and bake uncovered for another 20- 30 minutes or until just fork tender, removing and stirring another time while cooking (cooking time will depend on the thickness of the potatoes).
  • Sprinkle with cheese and green onions over the hot potatoes.
  • Serve immediately.
