Panguitch Potatoes Recipe

When my husband was in charge of our large pioneer celebration a few years ago, he decided to multiply our family favorite for a crowd. The dish is easy to fix and has become a standby for the event. Here is the original recipe, cheesy and comforting. —Lucile Proctor, Panguitch, Utah
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 1 hour Bake: 35 min. YIELD:15 servings


  • 4 pounds medium potatoes, peeled

"MizL, did you actually make these? Or just posted about how "easier" the recipe would be using hash browns? If the latter is the case, you could have commented without taking down the actual rating for this recipe. It's uncool to give a recipe a bad rating if you haven't even made it just because you think it would be too much work. I, on the other hand, HAVE made this recipe as-is and these potatoes are fabulous. Took them to a family gathering and they were one of the first dishes to completely disappear. 5 stars from me."

"May be less work but sure won't taste as good."

"so much EASIER and less work intensive to just use the equivalent of frozen hashbrowns."
