RECIPE: For Ginger! Whipping Cream Potatoes

Here is a very rich and delicious potato side dish I have been making since 1979 when a friend shared her recipe!

WHIPPING CREAM POTATOES

Parboil 6 large potatoes until ALMOST soft. Peel and grate the cooked potatoes, 1 pound sharp cheddar cheese, and 1 medium onion. Layer potatoes, cheese and onion in a large baking pan. Lightly salt and pepper the layers. Whip 1 pint (2 cups) whipping cream and use it to frost the top of the potatoes. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
Delicious!

p.s. DO NOT sweeten the whipping cream, of course!

OMG! Thank you! My favorite food. One question though - what happens to the whipped cream on top? Does it melt down into the potato layers?

ysop1016.....

I usually use a casserole dish a little larger than 9x13. I have also used a pan that I just measured...it is about 11x15 and almost 2-inches deep. I have made this for so long that I don't really measure the ingredients. I have never weighed the potatoes but use a med large baking potato. I have always used Russet potatoes......living in Spokane....pretty close to potato heaven.

This dish is very forgiving. Choose the casserole dish you want to use and layer the cooked potatoes, cheese and onion to your liking and then frost with about an inch deep of whipped cream. You can adjust amount to serve fewer or a crowd.

Good luck, Geri

Thanks,Geri,
How very nice of you to measure the pan and get back to me. I can't wait to try it.

I've noticed that every time I have people for dinner & serve something like this, people just scarf it down. Most are watching what they eat & for an occasional treat they really like getting dishes that are almost over the top. I know I will.

Geri,
I made it for dinner yesterday and it was superb. It went perfectly with a frittata that I concocted using the leftover "Popcorn Cauliflower" recipe that I got from the forum.
Thanks for the keeper.

ysop1016,

Thanks for the feedback! I only make this dish when I have a crew to feed, because if I have leftovers.......it's way too tempting. Like Ginger, I like to add a dish like this when family or company is around. Sort of the ultimate comfort food experience that people justify on vacation, out for dinner or at Grandma and Papa's house!

Geri
