How to Make Auntie Carolyn's Cheesy Potatoes

Step-by-Step

  1. In sauce pan combine half and half, cheeses, and butter.
  2. Cook over low heat until cheese is melted, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
  3. Add garlic and salt.
  4. Simmer uncovered for 1 hour, stirring frequently. My sisters and I cheat and don't cook it that long with no difference to the final product.
  5. Spray 9 x 13 pan or line with foil; also does great in a disposable.
  6. Arrange has browns evenly in pan.
  7. Pour cheese over and stir.
  8. Bake uncovered for 1 hour at 35o degrees or until top is slightly browned.
