Recipe Box, Steak House Potatoes

The best part of going to a Steak House restaurant is the side dishes.  Besides the steaks of course!  This potato recipe comes from a family friend that shared it from her favorite Steak House in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Hot, cheesy, creamy, dreamy…these are not for the faint of heart {read that not low fat} but they are divine and a few bites of this goes along way to satisfy…

Standard potato ingredients, the secret to these potatoes is the method…

DSC_5987

Bake the potatoes until cooked through and soft, 425 for about an hour.  Remove from oven and cool to room temperature and then put them in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight, until thoroughly chilled.  This is the secret to soft and creamy,  pillow-like potatoes.  After chilling,  peel and dice the potatoes into 1/2″ cubes.

In a large bowl toss the potatoes with melted butter, sour cream and cheese.

Divide mixture into individual au gratin dishes or ramekins.

Even though these are technically individual dishes, each one was PLENTY for 2.  This is rich, but a few bites will make you very happy!
