Cheesy Holiday Potatoes // Once you make these once, they will be your holiday potatoes always and forever more. They are creamy, cheesy, rich and wonderful! They'll be a recipe you'll want to keep around for every holiday and special occasion. | Tried and TastyWhen I think of my holiday menu planning there are certain recipes that I can’t live without.

You know, like my Grandma’s Quick Yeast Rolls, Honey Glazed Sweet Potato & Apple Casserole, or our family favorite Peaches & Cream Cheesecake Recipe. On that same list are these Creamy Holiday Potatoes.

They are perfectly rich and perfectly wonderful. I know the norm is mashed potatoes, but if you are willing to switch it up just once – you won’t regret it! I first discovered this gem of a recipe several years ago from my friend Jonna over at Just Get Off Your Butt and Bake. Not only is Jonna one of the sweetest people ‘I’ve never met,’ she has the most incredible recipes.

I’ve tried well over a dozen of them and have fallen in love with each one. When I stumbled across this recipe of hers a while back it became an instant hit. I’ve been making them for special occasions ever since.

By adding the New Traditional Swanson Cream Starter they were extra creamy, flavorful and even MORE wonderful. Want to know what else I love about these Cheesy Holiday Potatoes? You only need six ingredients!! How easy is that? Make them today!

Ingredients

  • 5 large potatoes
  • 1 c. whipping cream
  • 1 c. New Traditional Swanson Cream Starter™
  • 1 med. onion thinly sliced
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 tsp. Parsley flakes
  • Salt and Pepper

Instructions

  1. Cut potatoes into thin french fry strips, and lay the fries, in a 9×13″ glass pan.

  2. Pour the cream and Swanson Traditional Cream Starter over the top of the fries. Spread an even layer of sliced onions. Salt and pepper generously.

  3. Sprinkle grated cheddar cheese over the top followed by the parsley flakes on top of the cheese.

  4. Cover with foil, and poke a fork through the top of the foil, 2 or 3 times to allow a little steam to escape.

  5. Place your oven rack in the middle of the oven. Cook at 400 degrees F for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.

  6. During the last 15 or 20 minutes of baking lower your rack one more step, making a brown and crispy crust on the bottom of your potatoes.

    Recipe sounds delish. One question ~ the photo sequence shows potatoes, onions and cream sauce, but the recipe calls for potatoes, cream sauce, then onions. Would there be much of a difference in taste either way?

      I love anything with cheese and any kind of potatoes!!! The Swanson Cream Starter is so great & versatile for so many recipes!
