Healthy Cheesy Potatoes

Hey friends! 
How was your Monday? 

Can you believe I actually have a recipe for you! I know I can't either. I was giving up on the recipe part of my blog. I will make some amazing and delicious recipes, get super busy entertaining Miss O and a million other things while dinner cooks then forget to take pictures. I'm usually half way through my meal when I remember. 
So, I'm pretty freaking exited I have one to share with you today. 



A few weekends ago while we were in Springfield. We headed over to a friends for dinner. They were making delicious wings, cheesy potatoes and corn on the cob. We brought the corn which was a hit. But to me the potatoes were the biggest hit. I mean they were cooked just perfect and soooo cheesy. I just knew they couldn't be good for me and probably had cream of something in the recipe. I did change a few of the original ingredients but I promise you'll never know. 

I remember asking Corey what was in the potatoes and she simply said a little chicken stock, a little sour cream and a few other things. I asked if they was any canned cream of anything and she said no. 

By this time I was dying to try the recipe myself. So, last night I did. In fact, we had them with wings. 
Clearly we are missing our dear friends! 



Now, I know your going to think, "gosh, there's so many steps to this" because that's totally what I thought too. But after making it this is totally what I'll be taking to family dinners from now on. One its healthy two its delicious EVERYONE will love!
