Servings 12


  • 9 Medium to large potatoes
  • 2 Cups Shredded Cheddar & Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
  • 16 oz Whipping or Heavy Cream
  • Salt & Pepper


  • Wash potatoes and cook to medium doneness. Allow them to cool before peeling. Should be soft enough to peel skins off with your fingers, but still firm enough o grate without turning to mush. I cooked mine for 10min. in my Instant Pot.
  • Pre-heat oven to 400 Fahrenheit
  • Grate peeled potatoes with the coarse side of a cheese grater or mandolin.
  • Layer potatoes about an inch deep in the bottom of a 9X13in. glass baking dish, salt, and pepper to taste.
  • Add a layer of shredded cheese, dollop sour cream across the top, pour half the whipping cream over the top.
  • Repeat same steps until the dish is full.
  • Place in oven to cook until you see bubbles and the cheese is thoroughly melted. Approximately 30min.
  • Let cool slightly before serving, can be hot as lava fresh out of the oven.
  • Make sure to taste test before serving to the family. *Gotta make sure it's not poisonous, sometimes I have to take two bites just to be sure.
  • Enjoy!
