Favorite Cheesy Potatoes

My family loves these potatoes. I make a large batch in disposable pans and serve them at all our get-togethers. The holidays aren't the same without them. It's also a super recipe for Christmas morning brunch. —Brenda Smith, Curran, Michigan
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. Bake: 45 min.
  • Makes
    12 servings

Ingredients

  • 3-1/2 pounds potatoes (about 7 medium), peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1 can (10-1/2 ounces) condensed cream of potato soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup French onion dip
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (16 ounces) process cheese (Velveeta), cubed
  • Additional minced fresh parsley

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Place potatoes in a Dutch oven; add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook, uncovered, until tender, 8-12 minutes. Drain. Cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl, mix soup, onion dip, milk, sour cream, parsley, salt and pepper; gently fold in potatoes and cheese. Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish.
  • Bake, covered, 30 minutes. Uncover; bake until heated through and cheese is melted, 15-20 minutes longer. Just before serving, stir to combine; sprinkle with additional parsley. (Potatoes will thicken upon standing.)
    Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked casserole. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Cover casserole with foil; bake as directed until heated through and a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°, increasing covered time to 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours. Uncover; bake until lightly browned, 15-20 minutes longer. Just before serving, stir to combine. If desired, sprinkle with additional parsley.

    I made this recipe and the flavor was delicious. I did not need a 9x13 size as i was only feeding three to four people,so i tried to cut the recipe in half. It worked pretty well except cooking the potatoes until tender made them a little mushy, more like mashed potatoes,when mixed with the wet ingredients. "Almost tender" would have been a better instruction. Also,i could not decide whether it called for for dry onion dip mix or already prepared onion dip. Since the ingredient list did not sure specify dry, i used already prepared and that might have contributed to the mushiness of the dish. Nevertheless, it tasted delicious, was quick and easy, and could be prepared ahead of time--all pluses. I will certainly try it again.
