Cheddar Parmesan Potatoes
People in my part of Tennessee love potato dishes! This one tickles my fancy so much I couldn't help sharing it.
I'm a widow with five grown children and eight grandchildren. I make these potatoes when they come to visit for family suppers and holidays. Most often, I serve them alongside meat and vegetables—but, with the cheese, they could be a main dish all by themselves.
