Gourmet Potatoes

Adapted from one of the recipes in my mother-in-law’s collection. These are cheesy and saucy and heavy and delicious, which was considered gourmet back in the day. If you’re looking for something lighter, look for another recipe. Given that the main ingredients are starch and fat, it’s pointless to try to lighten these up.

Gourmet Potatoes
Recipe type: side dish
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 6 medium potatoes
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1-1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup chives or green onions (chopped)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • smoked paprika
  1. Bake unpeeled potatoes until almost done. Cool and peel. Or don't peel: I prefer to leave them unpeeled.
  2. Slice (1/4" thick) or cube (1/2") the peeled or unpeeled potatoes. I prefer cubed.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients and stir well.
  4. Fold potatoes into the cheesy-deliciousness mixture.
  5. Place into a greased casserole dish.
  6. Sprinkle with paprika.
  7. Bake at 350° for about 1 hour, or until bubbly and potatoes are completely done.
