Company Potatoes - the Basic Recipe
8-10 large potatoes, slice 'em up to cook
or you could use red potatoes - about 20-25 - skins on
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup - undiluted (you can use Healthy Choice too)
1 cube of butter, sliced (you can use unsalted butter)
3T chopped green onion
1 tub of sour cream (you can use low-fat)
salt and pepper
1/2-1 lb cheddar cheese, grated
Cook the potatoes till fork tender, turn out into a large bowl and mash. Add all of the ingredients, except cheese and mash together, then use a spoon to mix it up completely. Spread into a 9x13 glass baking pan, and sprinkle the top with the cheddar cheese and bake for 1 hour in a 350 oven.
in these pictures, I was making this recipe for 34 people, so I used
10 lbs of Yukon Gold potatoes
5 sweet onions, sauteed in olive oil at a low heat for 45 minutes, then added some salt and about 2 T sugar, and some Balsamic Vinegar. Set aside.
Here is how the onions look when they are cooking
I made about a double plus amount of potatoes - 2 - 11x17 and one 8x8 pans
The ingredients are all lined up - ready to add to the HOT potatoes. I make them in 2 large glass bowls. And I added the onions, 1 T oregano and some 3 cloves of garlic!
This is how they look. Of course, this is the small pan. The best part is that you can make it a couple of days ahead of time. I have made them with red potatoes - skins on, and have added veggies too. You can even put more cheese in with the potatoes. Ooooh...blue cheese. The 2 large pans were enough for 34 people. So, we have this to eat another night! Lucky us!
