Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In honor of Ireland, the Irish, St. Patrick’s Day and because it is Tuesday, we’re cooking up some potatoes today. If you don’t know about the Irish and potatoes, Click Here.
This recipe goes well with just about anything. Potatoes! Easy, Cheesy Potatoes – whip up a batch.
Mimi’s Cheesey Potatoes
6 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 small onion, chopped
1 Tablespoon butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk
3/4 lb. Velvetta Cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Peel potatoes and onion. Cube potatoes and chop onion. Place in a saucepan and cover with water. Boil until just tender. Drain well and let cool while making sauce. In a small saucepan, melt butter, stir in flour, slowly stir in the milk. Cook over medium heat until thickened stirring constantly (unless you like the smell of burnt milk). Stir in cheese and mix until melted. Add salt and pepper. Pour potato/onions in a 1 1/2 quart (buttered) casserole dish and pour cheese sauce over all. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Now, go find someone who forgot to wear their green today and give’em a good pinch!
Y’all Enjoy! 🙂
