How To Make creamy cheesy potatoes

  • 1
    Cut potatoes into thin french fry strips, and lay the fries in a 9x13-inch glass pan
  • 2
    Pour the cream over the top of the fries. Salt and pepper the potatoes very generously.
  • 3
    Sprinkle at least 2 cups grated cheddar cheese over the top. Sprinkle parsley flakes on top of the cheese.
  • 4
    Spray a bit of cooking spray on one side of a sheet of foil. Lay the foil over the baking dish, sprayed side down. Poke 2 or 3 holes in the foil to allow steam to escape.
  • 5
    Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven, on the center rack, for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  • 6
    During the last 15 or 20 minutes of baking, lower the oven rack one notch, so the bottom of the potatoes will be brown and crispy.
