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.
These potatoes are just okay in my opinion. Very bland and desperately in need of something to make them special. They're basically just cheesy potatoes. If I make them again I'll definitely add garlic and cayenne and maybe even some green or red pepper and chives. There's not enough onion in the recipe to even taste it.
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!
I have tried unsuccessfully to make cheese potatoes for years. THey tend to be too greasy or not cooked enough. THis was awesome and I will use it every time. Everything is better Pittsburgh-style!!!
I liked the which from scalloped potatoes which I usually make. I did alter the recipe with less onion for a picky eater and I changed the velveta to 1 1/2 cups and half a cup of mozzerella. I also added about 1/8 tsp garlic powder and right before I took it out I put additional cheese and some chopped cooked bacon on top. Everyone loved them, but next time I will put in the 1/3 cup onion for sure. Thanks!
I grew up just south of Pittsburgh and this is always a staple at picnics and family reunions. Thanks for posting. I always forget to ask for the recipe!! :)
Very good potatoes! I am from Pittsburgh and It brought back very happy memories. Thank you!
Quick and easy. Watch the the cheese/butter in saucepan. Will burn easy even on low setting w/ gas stove. Must stir constantly. Lots of flavor. My 14 yr old son loved it.
