Cheesy Oven Potatoes

I grew up on a potato farm so of course potatoes are a staple in my diet. Yum!  I'm not sure how I would survive my new allergies without them! This recipe is a fairly basic one, but it's really easy, delicious, and filling so I thought it was worth sharing here. 

As always, be sure to only use ingredients that you know are safe for you! I am sensitive to pepper (although common, it's a spice!) so this recipe doesn't use it, but if you find that you are okay with pepper, go ahead and add some.  Here goes: 

Cheesy Oven Potatoes

5 large russet or other baking potatoes (Idahoan if possible! )
1/2 to 1 cube butter
Salt to taste
1 cup grated cheese (I used a colby jack mix. Check ingredients for purity though.)

Preheat oven to 350. Wash potatoes. Don't peel. Cut into 1/4" thick slices.
Use butter to coat the bottom of a 13" x 9" baking dish. Layer potatoes over each other.  Sprinkle potatoes with salt. Cut remaining butter into chunks and spread over the potatoes.

Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour or until tender when poked with a fork. Sprinkle with cheese and put back in the oven, uncovered, for a few minutes or until the cheese is well melted.

Let cool a few minutes for cheese to set. Makes 6-8 servings.

These are delicious and disappeared quickly!  You can make them without the cheese for a healthier option, but I'm always needing a few extra calories to make up for what I can't eat. Plus cheese is just yummy.  You can also serve with sour cream.   Enjoy!
