    Cheesy Potatoes Recipe

    If you’re looking for a recipe for cheesy potatoes for your holiday dinners this year… I’ve got your back! These cheesy potatoes are to die for! We have them at every holiday and they are always a HUGE hit! They are my moms specialty…and a recipe passed down from my Grandma. I made them for a church event a few weeks ago and had to call her for the recipe. Of course, now I have to share them with you.

    I shared this recipe a few years back, but thought I would repost it for you all. These cheesy potatoes are one of my all time favorite side dishes. If you know me, I absolutely LOVE potatoes. You can usually find my plate ratio with mostly potatoes on Thanksgiving. Of course I love homemade mashed potatoes and gravy, but then you can’t miss the cheesy potato casserole as well!

    If you haven’t tried it, it’s a must this year. We always make these for Christmas and Easter (served with ham, vegetables, and homemade rolls). The version my mom makes omits the cream of chicken and cracker topping (to save on calories), but I love the extra creaminess it adds and the crunchy topping. So I go all out for the holidays. Feel free to omit as well if you’d like, they are still super yummy ;)

    Recipe Notes

    To lighten up, omit the cream of chicken soup, crushed ritz + extra butter, use light sour cream and less cheese.
