Easy Cheesy Velveeta Potatoes…..

There are so many versions of cheesy potatoes out there. I’ve had many. I can’t say that I really have a favorite.  Usually I prefer a creamy saucy  kind. But I happened to have a block of Velveeta cheese in my fridge and thought hmmmm. I know a lot of people don’t consider Velveeta a real cheese and they wouldn’t think of eating it. But I grew up with this stuff. My dad would make open-faced grilled cheese sandwiches topped with a tomato slice. M-m-mmm-mm, or what could be better than mac and cheese made with Velveeta!

Anyway, this is a really easy cheesy potato dish. It’s simple, but really rich and good. You can always jazz it up by adding some bacon, green onions, chiles, etc.

Easy Cheesy Potatoes

4 medium size potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 cups milk
1  1/2  cup cubed Velveeta cheese

Spray a baking dish with a non stick cooking spray. Layer in the potato slices.

Melt butter in a saucepan and whisk in the flour until smooth.  Add the milk and bring to a simmer. Add 1 cup of the cheese and stir until the cheese is melted. Your sauce should be nice and smooth.  Pour the mixture over the potatoes.  Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup cubed cheese on top. Cover the pan with foil.  Bake at 350 degrees 45 minutes. If you want a browned top, remove the foil and bake an additional 15 minutes.
