I often make this crunchy and colorful potato dish for our family reunions. It's my cousin's recipe, and we always know we'll never have any leftovers. —Mary C. Sholtis, Ashtabula, Ohio

Ingredients

  • 12 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 8 ounces Velveeta, cubed
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 large green pepper, chopped
  • 1 jar (2 ounces) diced pimientos, drained
  • 1 slice bread, torn into crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 cups cornflakes, crushed

Directions

  1. Place the potatoes in a large saucepan or Dutch oven and cover with water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook for 5-7 minutes or until tender; drain. In a bowl, combine the cheese, onion, green pepper, pimientos, bread, 2 tablespoons parsley and salt.
  2. In a greased shallow 4-qt. baking dish, layer a third of the potatoes and a third of the cheese mixture. Repeat layers twice. Pour milk and butter over all; sprinkle with cornflake crumbs.
  3. Cover and bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Uncover; bake 10-15 minutes longer or until bubbly and top is golden. Sprinkle with remaining parsley.
