My new years resoulation....Eat More Cheese

Now really  I know it is one I can keep.  We all have others but usually by Feb we are saying well maybe better luck next year and we give up.  So  I am being realistic  and doing one I know I can keep.  I mean you know cheese is good on everything.  My hubby , my son's and myself of course Love cheese, and I am thinking I will try some this year that I have never tried before. So now a recipe share.

I was watching Paula Deen yesterday  and she was doing a show on grilled chicken and grilled potatoes, well I don't have a grill but I was intrigued on the potato technique so I was like now I am going to have to roast these in the oven so how can I kick these things up and then it came to me.  Now Paula's part was this, you wash your potatoes and cut them into 1 inch pieces width wise.  Then you boil them for 6 min  and Paula said only 6 min because you will finish cooking them on the grill or for me in the oven

Gouda and caramelized onion topped potatoes:


4 baking potatoes
2 large onions
1 block of gouda cheese
1 stick of butter

So after cooking your potatoes for 6 mins you drain the water  and place them on a cookie sheet
Melt some butter in the microwave  and brush the tops with the butter and a little salt.  Place in a 375 degree oven for 15 min
While the potatoes are baking cut you onions  and with a 1/2 stick of butter and a frying pan  you cook the onions on a med heat,  they will soften and turn a light brown. 
Take the potatoes out  and flip them adding more butter and salt. for 5 to 10 more min
Take your block of gouda and shred it.

I then took the potatoes out, ad put the cheese  and the caramelized onion on top and placed back in the oven for about 3 min  so the cheese could melt.  Top with sour cream  and my hubby said  they were like little potato steaks.
