These potatoes are nothing new but boy, oh boy are they good!! I have made them a couple of times and each time, my family devours them. You can use any potato you have in the house, what ever cheese your family loves to make this recipe your own. My family loves the saltiness of the Pecorino Romano.

These can also be made as the base of a meal and topped with our Easy White Bean Chili  or our Slow Cooker Bacon & Beans for a satisfying lunch or weeknight dinner that is quick easy and oh so yummy!
