Cheesy Potato Bake

Tonight, I tried this "Cheesy Potato Bake", from Taste of Home, recipe book. I love their recipes. Comfort food, is just my favorite kind of food and most of their recipes are exactly that. Hubby loved it and he isn't a big fan of "potato", I know, he's SO weird, lol. The kids loved it as well. The mild, comforting flavor goes nicely with any meat. I breaded and sauteed chicken breast, to go along with this tasty side. Easy to make and that's a winner in my book.Ingredients
  • 4 large unpeeled baking potatoes
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon grated onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • Thinly slice the potatoes and place in a greased shallow 2-qt. baking dish. In a small skillet, melt butter; stir in the onion, salt, thyme and pepper until onion is coated with butter.
  • Spoon over potatoes. Cover and bake at 425° for 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Sprinkle with cheese and parsley. Bake, uncovered, 15 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 6-8 servings.
