Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the potatoes into a large pot and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender enough to pierce with a fork; drain, and and cut into cubes.
  3. Melt cheese and 1/4 cup butter in a large saucepan over medium low heat, stirring frequently. Remove the pan from the heat; stir in the sour cream, onion, salt, and pepper. Stir the potatoes into the cheese mixture, and transfer to a 2 quart casserole dish. Dot the top of the potatoes with the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, and sprinkle with paprika.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until hot, about 30 minutes. Cool before serving.

My husband hates sour cream so I was a bit worried about this one, but he loved it. It didn't have a strong sour cream taste and was delicious.

This was FANTASTIC! I had my in-laws and parents for dinner so I doubled it. It was creamy and so good. I added bacon bits and sprinkled the top with chives too. Very, very good! I will make this forever!
