moms-awesome-cheesy-potatoesSince my husband is not a big fan of boxed potato dishes, I created this recipe in hopes he would like it. It has since become a big favorite of my whole family. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

4 to 5 large potatoes, peeled and cut into eighths
1 large onion, cut into eighths
8 ounces cheese loaf (Velveeta), cut into 2 inch cubes
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream*
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1. Place the potatoes and onion in a large saucepan; cover with water and heat to boiling over medium-high heat. Continue cooking until the potatoes are tender. Drain and pour into a 2 quart casserole dish.

2. In a small saucepan, combine cheese, butter or margarine, milk, cream, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Place saucepan over medium-low heat and stir constantly until cheese is melted and smooth. Pour cheese mixture over potatoes and onions in casserole dish. Stir to blend well.

3. Bake in 350 degree F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until bubbly. Makes 6 servings.

* You may omit the heavy whipping cream, if desired, and increase milk to 3/4 cup.
