This recipe came about when I was in the last restaurant I worked at.
The delivery truck mistakingly sent us a case of hash browns, that we don't serve. I also had some pkgs. of instant mashed potatoes that a previous cook used instead of real ones. I don't do that for a meal. Then I had some mushrooms that needed to be used & we had left over baked potatoes to use. So, this is what I came up with. Every loved it.

I made this for a catering last night & the people putting on the event came back & told me everyone was raving over the potatoes.

How to Make PEGGI'S CHEESY, CHEESY, POTATOES, POTATOES, POTATOES

Step-by-Step

  • 1Saute onions until slightly browned.
    In large hotel pan, layer chunked up baked potatoes, hashbrowns, onions, sliced mushrooms & velveeta cheese cut into small cubes.
    *If you don't have left over baked potatoes, use left over fried ones, etc, some kind of potato with same texture & size.
  • 2Now, spread on the soups & sprinkle with seasonings. With both hands, mix this up good.
  • 3Now, pour mashed potatoes over top evenly. Mix well with hands.
  • 4Now, add the milk a little at a time, mixing well after each addition. Make sure this mixture is thick because the soup & cheese when warm will thin it. You can always add more milk later if too thick.
    **Same amount of regular milk may be used.
  • 5Taste them before you cook to see if you have enough season. Very important!

    Bake in 350° oven for about 1 hour or until starting to brown.
  • 6Remove from oven.
    Sprinkle shredded cheese on top & bake about 15 minutes more until melted. Remove from oven again & sprinkle with the green onions. (Main picture)
