Do you have a dish that you always bring to family dinners? For us, it's Gourmet Potatoes. One of my aunts started it originally and now I bring them along to dinners on my husband's side. They're perfect for Easter, Christmas, or anytime you have ham.
I have seen many variations of our Gourmet Potatoes, most of which use packaged shredded cheese and frozen shredded potatoes. The secret to our Gourmet Potatoes is that we shred the cheese and potatoes ourselves. It really does make all the difference!
I grabbed Heluva Good!® Cheese blocks at our local Walmart. I use Sharp Cheddar and White Extra Sharp Cheddar for our Gourmet Potatoes, but they have a ton of great assortment of flavors including Colby Jack, Pepper Jack, Extra Sharp Cheddar, White Sharp Cheddar, White Mild Cheddar, Muenster, Monterey Jack, and Special Reserve Extra Sharp Cheddar.
Heluva Good! Cheese is made with milk and has 0 grams trans fat per serving. This gluten free product is also a good source of protein and calcium!
Right now, you can save when you use this Heluva Good! Cheese offer on Ibotta. Limited quantities available. There is no expiration date for this offer, but it is available until all of the rebates have been used.
I've even let Charlie do some of the grating! Here's a bit of a throwback picture from a few years ago of his first time using the grater.
We did it slow and I showed him how sharp and pointy part of the grater are and that he could get hurt if he wasn't paying attention. It definitely took some patience while he did it, but he loves helping! I want Charlie to know how to use kitchen tools and feel comfortable doing so.
