With the holidays around the corner, food dishes are a must, so why not take the lazy way out? This oven-baked cheesy potato recipe requires patience, a few ingredients and a big stomach.


  • 3 Yukon potatoes (serves 4)
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 3/4 heavy cream
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • black pepper
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Cut the potatoes into small cubes. If you don’t like the skin of the potato, skin before cutting into cubes.
  3. Place all of the ingredients into a bowl except for one cup of the shredded cheddar and mix.
  4. Pour the mix into a three-quart baking dish. Make sure to even-out the potatoes to ensure even cooking.
  5. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 60 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
  6. Remove the foil and add the last cup of cheese on top. Bake until the cheese is golden.
  7. Let the dish rest for a couple of minutes before serving. Sprinkle parsley on top if desired.
