Potatoes Au Gratin

Otherwise known as “Cheesy Potatoes”.

This is simple, easy, but really, really good.  So good that I’ve never met anyone who didn’t like it, but it’s definitely not something you want to eat all the time.  Processed cheese and pounds of butter are not diet friendly.


  • 2 lb. bag southern style hash browns
  • ½ lb. Velvetta, cubed
  • 4 oz. shredded cheddar (1 c.)
  • 1-1/2 sticks butter (salted)
  • 1 pint half + half (2 c.)
  • 1 tsp. salt


  1. Dump frozen hashbrowns into a 9×13 pan and set aside.
  2. Melt all remaining ingredients together in a saucepan over low heat.  It’s easiest when you chop the Velvetta and butter into tiny pieces and add a little at a time.
  3. Pour cheese sauce over frozen hashbrowns and use a spatula to distribute sauce. 
  4. Let mixture soak in the fridge for at least 1 hour (preferably overnight).
  5. Preheat oven to 350*.  Bake for 65 minutes.

      Well, aren’t you the lucky lady! I have been outta the loop a bit over the hlaydois and have neglected my fab blogging friends, sorry buddy! I didn’t even see who won Carolina giveaway yet and I’m sure happy it’s you! That ice cream sundae she made looks so yummy! What a sweetheart she is! And Monika’s birdie card is just too pretty! I love it! Of course, I already know your blog to be Most Excellent, but I’m glad to see newbies discovering it too–they are in for some major inspiration! Hugs!
