Easy Cheese Potato Casserole

  • Author: Louisiana Woman

  • Yield: 9 servings 1x


An easy potato casserole to assemble and bake into a rich, luscious cheese sauce.



1.5 pounds red potatoes, unpeeled

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

2 cups heavy whipping cream


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Slice potatoes into rounds, 1/4 ” thick.

Layer half of the potatoes into a 10-inch square casserole dish.

Season potatoes with half of the salt and pepper.

Sprinkle seasoned potatoes with 1 cup of cheese.

Pour 1 cup of cream over potatoes and cheese.

Repeat the layers of potatoes, seasonings, cheese, and cream.

Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 1  1/2 hours or until a fork pierces through the potatoes easily, then bake 15 minutes more, uncovered, to brown the potatoes until golden.


Slicing the potatoes into the same width allows them to cook evenly; using a mandoline slicer can help cut all potatoes into uniform widths. 

Bake a few minutes longer, uncovered, for a browner top.
