  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 2-quart casserole with cooking spray. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt 2 teaspoons butter over medium-high heat. Cook onions and bell pepper in butter 2 to3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; set aside.
  • 2
    In 3-quart saucepan, heat water, half-and-half and butter to boiling; remove from heat. Stir in both pouches of potatoes just until moistened. Let stand about 1 minute or until liquid is absorbed. Beat with fork until smooth.
  • 3
    Spoon 2 cups of the potatoes into casserole; top with half of the onion mixture and 3/4 cup of the cheese. Spoon another 2 cups potatoes over cheese; carefully spread to cover. Sprinkle evenly with remaining onion mixture. Top with remaining potatoes; carefully spread to cover. Sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup cheese.

Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Make the potatoes up to 24 hours ahead of time, following directions through step 3, then cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours. Bake about 45 minutes or until hot.
  • Half-and-half is what makes these potatoes so rich and creamy. If you don't have it on hand, though, you can use milk for a less creamy version.
