Pepperjack Potatoes

Pepper Jack Potatoes

Since we were given a big chunk of pepperjack cheese over the holidays, I made these potatoes from a recent post on Simply Recipes... very tasty and I found the cream and the starch to combine nicely into a rather velvety sauce (not a diet dish!). I find Elise's obsession with not having crumbly potatoes a little odd... what's really the problem if they're falling apart a bit? But if you don't care about that or don't mind the suggested option turning "overcooked" potatoes into Pepperjack Mashed Potatoes, then it seems a nice low maintenance side dish... as it mainly just sits, covered, waiting for the cheese to melt and does well being zapped in the microwave a bit before serving.
