This recipe came from my Aunt Pamela. These potatoes are a staple at every holiday and family gathering. And we love them! They are simple to make with simple ingredients and they taste great!
Cheesy Potatoes (recipe courtesy of my Aunt Pamela)
2 pounds frozen hash browns (NOT THE SHREDDED TYPE, THE CUBED TYPE) (we prefer the larger cubed ones)
1 stick butter
1/2 pound Velveeta Cheese, cut into chunks
3 ounces mild shredded cheddar cheese
1 pint half and half
Salt and pepper to taste
Spray 9 x 13-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray. Put frozen potatoes in pan and allow to come to room temperature, should take about 45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Put stick of butter into saucepan and melt. Add the cheddar cheese and the cut up Velveeta cheese and let it melt. Then add the Half and Half and let it heat through, do not let it bubble. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Pour cheese mixture over potatoes. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in preheated oven for one hour.
Take aluminum foil off, set oven to broil (500 degrees), raise the rack if you need too, and put potatoes under the broiler for 8 to 10 minutes.
