Old-Fashioned Cheese Potatoes Recipe

Publisher Photo
When my husband and I got married in 1951, one of the first appliances we bought was an apartment-size electric range. The range came with a cookbook that included this recipe. I've used the same recipe ever since!

MY REVIEW

My husband raved about these potatoes, and I love 5-ingredient recipes like this (I don't count salt + pepper)! Definitely goes into the "Blue Ribbon" file. Great comfort food. By the way, cut the Velveeta in cubes, don't try to shred it - it's too soft.

This is an awesome, comforting dish! I'm a potato and cheese lover, and this was a home run. So tasty and more simple than I thought it would be to make. I made this for a family gathering and transferred it to a slow cooker trio to keep warm throughout the night. This will be a permanent addition to my recipe collection.

Loved this recipe! Because I'm allergic to Annatto, a food dye used in numerous food products, like many cheeses, I substituted a shredded white Cheese blend for the Velveeta. Family loved it! Thanks for sharing this recipe :)

My husband and daughter really loved this recipe. I was asked when are you going to make them again.
