Cheesy Noveau Potatoes

Noveau (naw-voo) Potatoes have always been a favorite comfort food of mine.  They made a great side dish to pretty much ANY meat.  And they are easy to throw together.  Couple all that with amazing cheesy-goodness, and potatoes, and you have this delicious side dish.

Cheesy Noveau Potatoes with Aged White Cheddar 549I said these were easy to make, and they really are.  I use frozen hash browns (not the kind formed into patties, just loose potato pieces), and that saves me from having to pre-cook the potatoes, and peel them, and shred them.  That’s a lot of time saved.

With the frozen hash browns I mix in some sour cream, cream of mushroom soup (you can use a homemade substitute if you want), dehydrated onions, salt and pepper, milk, and cheese.  (I used aged white cheddar cheese for these photos, but you can use cheddar, colby jack, pepper jack, etc.)  Stir it all together and toss it in the oven.  Simple.

Cheesy Noveau Potatoes 547These do have to cook for 45 minutes to an hour, so plan for that.  Just before they are done you sprinkle more cheese on top, and bake again to melt the cheese.  I told you, CHEESY goodness!!

  • 26 oz bag of frozen, shredded hash browns
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup dehydrated onions
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups shredded cheese -divided (cheddar, white cheddar, colby jack, etc.)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients, except 1 1/2 cups of the cheese. Stir until fully incorporated.
  2. Spread potato mixture evenly in a greased 9×13 baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes. Sprinkle remaining cheese over the top of the potatoes and return to oven for 5-10 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

This is an Easter classic for me.  Definitely part of my traditional Easter dinner.

I hope you all enjoy these as much as I do!!
