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.

    These were a little too bland for my liking. I am trying to make them again though and adding either some onions or garlic for more flavor.

    Although I cooked the potatoes to long, so it made them a little tough to work with, the flavors were great! Definitly making this again!

    Excellent ... I added a little cayenne pepper to kick it up a bit.

    This one's definitely a keeper! It has become a Christmas Eve tradition in our home. Even my picky little son asks for seconds!

    What a treat! Very good. I overcooked my potatoes though which, after baking, were a bit too soft. Next time I will just parboil until just barely tender. Other than that this recipe is delish!!!!!!!!

    Very good! We are cheese lovers so I did add extra of both cheeses. Definitely will make again.
