  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place 1/2 the potatoes in a medium baking dish. Layer with 1/2 of the onion, 1/2 of the processed cheese, and 1/2 of the butter. Season with salt and pepper. Repeat layers, reserving 5 or 6 slices of the processed cheese. Pour in milk to approximately 1 inch depth.
  3. Bake 40 minutes in the preheated oven, stirring twice. Top with remaining cheese food, and continue baking 30 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.

These potatoes were awesome! I made a few changes to the recipe though. I didnt use velveta because we dont like that, instead I used a bag of cheddar cheese. Also, instead of using 1 1/2 of milk i used a can of cream soup (any kind) and mixed that with milk. It turned out to be a bit too much butter but they were still awesome and really yummy! Everyone was chowing down. They are also good for leftovers, I had them for lunch today! Thanks for the great recipe!


Recipe was very tasty and was a big hit. My only problems with recipe were "medium baking dish" - my medium baking dish was too small & cooked over into my oven (had to put it on cookie sheet) and directions do not specify greased or ungreased. I would definitely say ungreased. It all fit well into my baking dish nicely but baked over anyway.


Very tasty and the ooey goey cheese made this a good comfort food. Also, plenty of room for alterations to your tastes. We have added sauted green bell peppers (chopped) and some minced garlic but you can add the "extras" that you and your family enjoy most with cheese and potatoes (or just prepare as is). However, we noticed we did not need to cook as long as recipe recommends, even with the extra ingrediants...perhaps we used thinner potato slices? Either way, have made again and will continue into the future.
