Hearty Cheese Potatoes

Children enjoy the rich cheese flavor which enhances the rest of the meal. You'll also enjoy the fact that they can be made early in the day and then simply heated before serving.


6 to 8 servings


6 tablespoons butter, cubed
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 cups milk
12 ounces process cheese (Velveeta), cubed
about 4 pounds potatoes, peeled, cooked and thinly sliced (8 cups)


Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease a 2 1/2 quart baking dish.

Melt butter in a saucepan; add flour, salt and pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Add milk all at once; cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 1 minute more. Remove from the heat. Add cheese and stir until melted. Place potatoes in a large bowl; gently stir in cheese sauce. Transfer to prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with paprika.

Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until heated through.
