Making good on a promise

So for some reason — I never do this — I was reading back over some previous blog postings of mine from the past few weeks. And discovered that not once, but twice, I said I'd post the Golden Baked Potatoes recipe. And have I done so??? Noooooo. I apologize if I have thereby ruined anyone's Christmas dinner. Since no one emailed me, I assume not. LOL.

Here it is:

Golden Baked Potatoes
8 medium red potatoes (4 to 5 lbs.)
1 stick butter
2 c. half and half (I have used 2% milk and it is STILL sinfully rich!!)
8 oz. sharp cheddar, cut in small cubes
1 T. salt

At least two days before serving, cook potatoes in boiling water until tender. Drain, cool, cover and refrigerate. (Ziploc bag is good.) On serving day, peel skins off and grate potatoes. Heat cream, salt and butter until butter is melted - do not boil. Mix cheese cubes into potatoes and pour warm cream mixture over and pour into large rectangular pyrex baking dish. If desired, top with more grated cheese about 15 minutes before end of baking time. Bake uncovered in 350 oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

My mother writes: The number of servings vary, depending on whether or not a Creekmore is dining with you. Heh. I promise not to come over when you're serving this dish. But the real danger is my youngest sister, I'll just warn you in advance.
