Mom’s Cheese Potatoes

Mom's Cheese Potatoes were a Sunday staple at our house. It's not hard to see why. They are so yummy, quick and easy to make, and are very inexpensive. You will love this recipe.

 This recipe is one of our most favorite side dishes. We had it for Sunday dinner almost every week, when we were growing up.
Now, as a mother, I totally understand why we had it so often. Not only is it delicious, it’s extremely easy, and very inexpensive to make.
I now follow the patters of my mother and make this almost every Sunday because it’s a side dish I know I will always have time to throw together, and my kids will love.
If you have never tried cheese potatoes, you are missing out, and definitely need this recipe in your life.

what could i replace the sour cream with?

I love sour cream, but after reading some of the nutrition facts about it, it can seem like a kinda gross food.

I totally feel you. My husband and I rarely use sour cream any more for our cooking and baking, because of that.

Instead, we have made the switch to plain Greek yogurt. It is the same texture, similar flavors, and works just as great.

The consistency is a little different from sour cream when you cook it. I feel like the plain Greek yogurt it just a little more thin and liquidy when cooked or baked, but all the flavor and creamy texture is there. We highly recommend switching out the sour cream for plain Greek yogurt if watching fat and calorie intake.

could i use any potato for this recipe?

For this recipe, we recommend using russet potatoes, but you could also try using red potatoes, potato fingerlings, or even sweet potatoes.

We have only tried russet potatoes, and they turn out perfectly, every single time.

  1. I made moms cheesy potatoes but it did not have much flavor. I was not sure what grated cheese to use since it was not indicated. Also I did not know if it was an error and should be shredded cheese so that is what I used. Please let me know what should be used so I can remake it. Thank you.
