Shepherd's Potatoes

This is a dish I remember my grandma making when I was a kid. I think she called them Shepherd's potatoes. These make a wonderful side dish. I added a little bacon to mine and served with some veggies and buttered homemade bread. These are simple and need only a few ingredients.

Shepherd's Potatoes
  • 4-5 baking potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 3-4 T Olive oil, or bacon grease
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions: Heat olive oil in a large frying pan. Add potatoes, salt and pepper. Cover and cook until potatoes are fork tender(stirring occasionally). When potatoes are fork tender add milk and cook uncovered until milk begins to be absorbed by the potatoes and is beginning to thicken. Sprinkle with cheese and serve.

I chopped up some bacon, cooked it and took it out of the pan. I cooked my potatoes in the pan with the bacon grease and then added the bacon back on top when the potatoes were finished. I also sprinkled some cayenne pepper on top of ours.

Pin It!

  1. Oh my...this is my first time to your blog and I'm not quite sure which delicious post to comment on first?!! These potatoes sounds scrumptious! I never cook them on the stovetop - unless I'm boiling them to mash them later - I almost always roast them in the oven. I can't wait to try these!


THANKS for visiting!!
