Recipe For Yummy Cheese Potatoes
- 10 medium potatoes
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1 and 1/2 pint sour cream
- 1/2 tsp. basil
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 1/3 cup chopped green onions
- 2 - 3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (reserve 1/2 cup cheese)
- Cook potatoes until tender; cool to touch and then peel by hand. You may grate or chop potatoes in small bite size pieces, your preference. Place in large bowl, and set aside. (I also place a bay leave and one T salt in water when boiling potatoes.)
- Combine in very large mixing bowl; cream of chicken soup, melted butter and stir well.
- Stir in sour cream, chicken broth, chopped green onions, salt, pepper, basil - and continue to mix by hand until well blended.
- Fold in cooked and prepared grated or chopped potatoes... when well cooled.
- Fold in 2 - 2-1/2 cups grated sharp cheese. Mix all ingredients very well... yet gently.
- Transfer Yummy Cheese Potatoes into a deep 13X9 casserole dish. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake @ 350 degrees for one hour and fifteen minutes.
- Remove foil, add 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese over top of Yummy Cheese Potatoes and bake for another 15 minutes.
Recipe Tip: For eye appeal... I like to use the last five minutes to turn on the broiler... but watch casserole very closely until top of casserole is a"light" golden cheesy brown... beautiful finishing touch for your Yummy Cheese Potatoes!

Fast & Easy Recipe Tip For Yummy Cheese Potatoes...
Recipe Alteration: Now, there is absolutely no question that this recipe, to be rated a 10 by your family is going to require you to wash, boil and hand peel those potatoes - if you want to score a 10!
But a 10 is not always necessary, is it? LOL Here is a fast and easy way to pull off Yummy Cheese Potatoes - on your more "lazy" days when you want to prepare this family favorite recipe.
Easy Recipe Tip: Buy two large bags of the frozen shredded or chopped potatoes and go from there! It is that easy! But here is the trick that will take them from tasting like frozen potatoes to homemade...
You must first, defrost your frozen potatoes. Turn down the temperature for baking to 325 degrees. Cook covered with foil for two hours! Then proceed with the finishing 15 minutes of original recipe instructions.
When using the frozen potatoes, they must cook down well, in order to meet the quality of the homemade recipe and to not have the mother-in-law detect that you have cheated! LOL
Could you settle for a nine:-) ?
