A friend gave me this recipe when I needed a potato dish for a potluck. That was many years ago, but I still get compliments whenever someone tries it for the first time.

  • 12 medium red or white potatoes, unpeeled

"Very fluffy potatoes. We used sharp cheddar, which we thought it needed. We also thought it needed more cream or milk or some melted butter. Even with those thoughts, the pan was still clean after dinner."
