Peel 4 medium potatoes and slice into circles. Put the potatoes in a pan of water and bring to a boil on top of the stove. Cook about 10 minutes.
While potatoes are cooking, make you basic cheese sauce. Combine the following:
2 tbsp. butter, melted
2 tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. dry mustard (very important!)
1 C milk
Mix together with a whisk. Microwave two minutes at a time until thickened. Next, add slices of Velveeta cheese until it becomes the cheesiness that you like. It takes about 8-9 slices for my family. I add about 4 slices at a time and microwave the mixture and then stir, then add more cheese and melt it.
Next, drain the potatoes and place in a casserole dish. Pour cheese sauce over the potatoes. Sprinkle the top with extra cheese. This time, I used shredded cheddar cheese but I often put a shredded colby and monterey jack cheese mixture on top of my potatoes.
Then nuke it for 7 minutes.
Wah-lah! Easy-peasy Cheese Potatoes
Comfort food at its cheesiest.
