Ranger Melissa Prince submitted this recipe for Cheesy Potatoes, which was much loved at SHINDIG/WINDIG AZ 2017.
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 1 bunch of celery, diced
- 3 lbs potatoes, diced
- 2 cups shredded carrots
- 1 box broth (chicken or veggie)
- 4 tbls butter (half stick)
- 1 block cream cheese
- 4 cups sharp Cheddar
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- 2 bouillon cubes
- 1 Bay leaf
- Salt and pepper to taste
Sauté onion, celery and garlic in butter, lightly season with salt/pepper.
Place veggies, seasoning and broth in crock pot and cook on high for 4 hours.
Mash/blend together, add cream and cheese (cream cheese melts easier if cut into smaller pieces) stir until well combined.
Cover and cook on low for 30 min
Optional toppings: bacon, sour cream, green onions….. yum!
Hope y’all enjoy and let me know how it turns out when you make it.
