When it comes to Fall and Fall things, there’s nothing that hits the spot as much as comfort food. And what could possibly be more comforting than cheesy potatoes?

Yes, potatoes on their own are great and there are so many ways to prepare them, but nothing takes them to the next level quite like a generous helping of dairy – specifically cheese.

While I am quite partial to DISCO FRIES (cheese and gravy poured over fries), there are plenty of ways to have cheesy potatoes that are less “drunk food” and more of a side dish you can actually serve to people at other times than Super Bowl Sunday…
