Cheesy Potato Casserole
The guys in my house LOVE potatoes, so I have several different ways that I prepare and serve them. This Cheesy Potato Casserole ranks high among their favorites.
No holiday gathering would be complete without a potato casserole on the table.
A lot of potato casserole recipes are made with canned ingredients that are packed with preservatives.
If you’re searching for a simpler, homemade potato casserole without unnecessary ingredients, you’ll love this easy potato casserole.
Made with simple, wholesome ingredients, it’s the perfect side dish for your next family get-together.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 9×13 baking dish by spraying with nonstick cooking spray.
Set the pan aside.
In a small saucepan, whisk together milk and cornstarch.
Add the butter, salt, pepper, and paprika.
Heat the mixture over medium-low heat until it comes to a boil, whisking frequently.
Reduce heat and allow to simmer for one minute, then remove from heat and stir in 1 cup of cheese.
Place the frozen diced potatoes in a large bowl.
Pour the cheese mixture over the potatoes and stir to mix.
Add the sour cream to the bowl and stir to combine all ingredients.
Pour the potato mixture in the prepared baking dish.
Bake uncovered for 35 minutes.
When 10 minutes is left on the bake time, remove casserole from oven and sprinkle remaining cheese over the top.
Return to oven and continue baking for remaining 10 minutes.
Serve and enjoy.
