Cheesy Roasted Potatoes Ingredients & Smart Substitutions

  • Potatoes: I like using Russet potatoes, cut into cubes because they roast up nice and crispy. It is up to you if you peel the potatoes or not. I personally like the texture of the potato skins, plus, it makes this recipe even easier! Yukon gold or red potatoes could also work. Depending on the potatoes you use, cooking times may need to be adjusted. Season the cubed potatoes with salt and pepper.
  • Cheese: These are cheesy potatoes, so I added plenty of cheese on top! Sharp cheddar cheese adds a lot of flavor, but feel free to customize the recipe using your favorite kind of cheese or blend of cheeses.

What To Serve With Cheesy Roasted Potatoes

I could eat a whole plateful of these potatoes and call it a meal! But, they would also be a delicious side dish with a variety of foods. Serve the potatoes with meats like steak bites, chicken, or baked pork chops. I love them with my Magic Meatloaf! Another option would be to serve them with scrambled eggs for a hearty breakfast. Any way you serve them, they will be enjoyed!

Storing & Reheating Cheesy Roasted Potatoes

To store cheesy roasted potatoes, first, let the potatoes cool to room temperature. Next, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They will last up to 3-4 days. Reheat the potatoes in the oven for about 10-15 minutes, or until heated through. Or, reheat them in the microwave.
