Fat Rascal Cheesy Potatoes

Diane Atherton


A nice potato side dish that both kids and adults will enjoy.

We like these fat rascals with beef, chicken, fish or pork as a side dish.

If we have any left we zap in the microwave and serve with breakfast the next morning.

Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Fat Rascal Cheesy Potatoes


  1. Peel and grate potatoes; rinse and drain. Blot potatoes with paper towels to remove as much moisture as possible; set aside.
