  • t •5-8 potatoes I don’ peel…umm lazy :) peeled or not peeled
  • cups •2 or 1 pint of Half and Half
  • Tbsp •2 . Butter
  • Cup •1/2 Water 1 cup if using double the potatoes
  • Cup •1 Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • •Salt and Pepper to taste. ( You can add other seasonings too like garlic salt, seasoning salts)
  • cup •Optional Ingredients: 1/2 Shredded Romano/Parmesan Cheese Bacon, Green Onions, Ham… let your creative side come out..


  1. Slice up the Potatoes to about 1/8 of an inch thick (any thicker will take really long to cook) See at end of post the type of Grater/Slicer I use
  2. Spray the size pan that will fit your potatoes. I am using a 10X9 for 5 potatoes. Spread potatoes out and pour in Water and Half and Half.
  3. Now Salt and Pepper..then dab Butter around evenly.
  4. Spread Cheese on top and then cover with foil.
  5. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes. Uncover at the last 5 minutes if you would like a golden brown top. Now if you are in a hurry..just microwave until potatoes get softened..NOT with the foil on of course. Then put in the oven for about 15 mins at 375.
