How To Homeschool My Child

Cheesy Potatoes Recipe {Monday Meals}

Steve & I started our Easter celebration at church – celebrating Jesus Christ’ victory over death.  As I walked this morning I was reminded that He is truly our living sacrifice. It might seem like an oxymoron to say Jesus is living and a sacrifice, but that’s what happens when you are God Almighty.

Christ sacrificed Himself for my sin, dying on Good Friday.  On Easter, He conquered death and becomes the first & only living sacrifice.

I can not say “thank you” enough.

After church with Hunter & his friend, Rodney, we headed home to start cooking. I love having family & friends over for special meals.

Before lunch, we had a little fun…

When men turn 50 (Steve’s birthday is this Thursday & he’ll be 50), they do strange things!

Kids will always be kids, especially my competitive ones!

After joking around, we had a fantastic Easter feast.  Gentry came in town from her job at Rice University in Houston & brought her good friend, Shea, for lunch. Hunter invited some of his friends over as well – Matt, Michael & Rodney.  Ashley, Jesse & my parents joined us, too.

Cheesy Potatoes Recipe {Easter Side Dish}

Prep Time: PT10-15M

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes

Cheesy Potatoes Recipe {Easter Side Dish}


  • 3 pounds potatoes
  • 4 cups heavy cream
  • 3 cups cheddar cheese
  • salt & pepper
  • nutmeg
  • 1/2 onion


  1. Slice potatoes thinly and place entire potato in 15x10 baking dish. I used a slicer that sliced the entire potato at once.
  2. Fill baking dish with potatoes.
  3. Slice onions thinly and place in & around potatoes. I used rings of potatoes because my dad can't eat onions and it's easy for him to remove them when they are not chopped into small pieces.
  4. Heavily season with salt, pepper & nutmeg. I covered all the potatoes with lots of seasonings. I was heavier on the salt & pepper.
  5. Heat cream in microwave until it simmers, about 3-5 minutes.
  6. Add grated cheese to cream. I used half sharp and half colby cheese. I was in a hurry to get this in the oven, so the cheese didn't completely melt.
  7. Lift the potatoes easily so the cream gets in, under & around each potato.
  8. Bake at 400 about 1 hour, until bubbly, golden and potatoes are tender.
