Grandma’s Potatoes have the yummiest combination of flavors and are the most amazing potatoes I have ever eaten! They are always a huge hit!
Every year while I was growing up, we celebrated Christmas Eve with family at my parent’s house. It was always a beautiful night of making memories and spending time with our loved ones, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Along with the amazing tradition of seeing family, came the delicious food that we enjoyed year after year. Grandma’s Potatoes were always something that everyone looked forward to!

No matter who tried to recreate this incredible recipe, it always tasted best when my grandma made them. She had a magical touch and cooked them to perfection each and every time. Grandma’s Potatoes would disappear before everyone was able to walk through the buffet line, so she had to start making four pans each year. The fourth pan was secretly put aside so we could have some on Christmas morning. It was perfect because they were already cooked, so we could just warm them up after opening presents.
On the years that we spend Christmas at home, I’d make Grandma’s Potatoes, and then sometimes again on New Year’s Day. They are by far the best potatoes I have ever had and they are always a crowd pleaser! I have made them for my in-laws several times and they couldn’t believe how wonderful they tasted. Everyone wanted the recipe! These easy cheesy potatoes would work as a side dish to pineapple glazed ham or super juicy, brined roasted turkey, or as a breakfast side dish. They are very addictive and have the most amazing combination of flavors. Give them a try, and watch them disappear. You will be really happy you made them and might start eating them every single Christmas or holiday season!
